Chocolate and caramel notes, big dank and piney hops, firm bitterness and a dry finish…

Brewer’s Advice for Brewing Super Hoppy Beers

When it comes to brewing super hoppy beers like this it pays to take extra care with fermentation, dry hopping and packaging. We recommend treating your water for chloramine using metabisulphite. Follow the dry hopping guidelines carefully and minimise oxygen exposure during dry hop and when packaging your beer. Taste your beer after your Specific Gravity has stabilised and test for diacetyl (butterscotch and popcorn) before determining whether your beer is ready to package – you may need to leave it longer to ferment with bigger dry hops. Transfer your beer carefully into a fully purged keg; for bottlers, purge your sanitised bottles of oxygen and minimise headspace when bottling.

Pay in 4 (interest-free instalments) is available for orders between $30 and $1,500. 2% processing fee applies.
