In January we brewed a hazy IPA and we wanted to share our recipe with all of you.  I think the most important things to consider when brewing a hazy IPA, is to increase your hopping rates and to use a liquid yeast that is low flocculating.

I had previously brewed a similar recipe to this at a brewery I worked at last year with the same yeast and hop varieties.

10 Gallon 3 Vessel Herms Recipe:

65% Pilsner Malt

20% Oat Malt

10% Flaked Oats

5% Carapils Malt

Whirlpool Hops: 3 oz El Dorado and 3oz Comet

Yeast: Whitelabs 518 Opshaug Kveik

First Cold Dry Hops: 5oz Comet and 5oz El Dorado

Second Cold Dry Hop: 3oz El Dorado

Keg Dry Hop Addition: Hopzoil Juice 1ml per 5 gallon keg

Fermented at 30 degrees Celsius for 4 days before cold crashing at our targeted final gravity of 1.016 or 4 Plato.

We named our IPA, Cloud Walker and it finished at 6.2% ABV

John: feel free to email me at iain@brausupply.com and I can send you some details. I am a pro brewer, so I just scale down recipes, I tend to use malt complex recipes in general, but simplicity can still offer balance.

Adam: Hopzoil is a product from Glacier Hops in Colorado, which is a distillate of fresh hops. 1ml in a 19 litre corny keg is sufficient. https://glacierhopsranch.com/hopzoil/

This is a great idea to share house favourite recipes customised for Brau equipment. I would have loved to see the Unibrau recipe / process as well….

Thanks again for sharing!

Thanks so much for sharing. But what is Hopzoil? I’m always looking for ways to up my NEIPA game…
