About this Recipe: 

We served this beer at Homebrew Con and it was a hit. The use of Ultra-Ferm (a gluco-amylase enzyme) is one of the defining attributes of the Brut IPA. This new style is known for little to no residual sugar, very little bitterness with pronounced hop flavor and aroma. Using Ultra-Ferm in the mash with help with breaking down maltose and maltotriose to glucose allowing WLP001 California Ale Yeast to completely ferment the beer out to 100% attenuation.

Carbonate between 3-4 volumes of CO2 and you’re ready to serve a unique beer that’s been gaining attention from homebrewers and pro-brewers alike.
