Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 11.5 lbs Pale Ale Malt; Dingemans

    Pale Ale Malt; Dingemans

    Dingemans Pale Ale malt is fully modified and is easily converted by a single-temperature mash. This is the preferred malt for ales of all types. This malt is interchangeable with British pale ale malt.

  • .5 lbs Munich Malt; Dingemans

    Munich Malt; Dingemans

    Dingemans Munich malt undergoes higher kilning temperatures than pale malt. The resulting malt will lend a full, malty flavor and aroma, and an orange-amber color. This malt can make up to 100% of the grain bill, but low diastatic power makes this malt unsuitable for use with adjuncts.

I am very pleased with the results of this tasty BIPA. The chinook hops provided just the right amount of bite and aroma punch that I enjoy in a hoppy beer which blends perfectly with the Belgian Ardennes yeast. This tasty beverage will disappear fast. Prost!
