Star Gazer Hazy DIPA – Big Brew 2021
This hazy double IPA was formulated to showcase the tropical and juicy aromas from BSG Hops’ Zamba™ blend and the minty and green-apple aroma notes from German Polaris hops. The grist is typical for the style, with a little boost from sucrose to increase wort gravity without adding non-fermentables or additional malt flavor. The hopping schedule and yeast strain are intended to set the stage for aroma retention and biotransformation while keeping hop bitterness in check.
Recipe creator Ashton Lewis says, “The name is also a bit odd and was inspired by the recent Great Conjunction and the use of North Star Pils ™ malt and Polaris (a.k.a. the North Star) hops.”

More about Big Brew 2021 Official Recipes:
In participation with BSG and Lallemand, we’ve made joining in on the day even easier by compiling all the ingredients together into two kits for you - available now until Big Brew 2021. Please Note: Because of this partnership with BSG in offering the 2021 Big Brew recipes you may notice some of the amounts are what we will call “a bit odd” compared to a traditional Northern Brewer recipe kit. In sticking true to the recipes, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing a Brewing Scale along with your Big Brew Recipes. You will need to weigh out some of the ingredients. No scale? While we do encourage and recommend having a brewing scale don’t forget the homebrew mantra - “Relax, Don’t Worry, Have a Homebrew.”

About AHA Big Brew:
In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate homebrewing around the world. Now in its 24th year, the event serves as an opportunity for new and expert-level homebrewers to get together in their shared hobby. Held on the first Saturday in May, Big Brew Day is an opportunity to fire up the burners and raise a glass to homebrewing. In 2020, the AHA estimated that over 4,600 people homebrewed in honor of Big Brew in over 60 countries, and in all US states.
