Default Belgian IPA with Sriracha

A homebrew competition recently caught my eye as it had a requirement that the 'wild' category use sriracha, caravienne, and a belgian yeast. I decided to go for it because who doesn't love sriracha right?

I decided to go for a Belgian IPA, figuring maybe the bitterness/taste would offset and work well with the sriracha. Anyway this is my first time making an IPA or using Belgian yeast so I essentially copied the Raging Bitch CYBI recipe grain bill but added a small amount of caravienne (actually excited to see how it adds to Raging Bitch) and I modified the hops per another forum on here. And of course sriracha is added.

It's using WLP 550 Belgian yeast

I hit an OG of 1.062 so that's looking good, put it into primary and went out of town for a day, well I came back and this picture greeted me, my first blown top!

I decided to just clean off the rim and top with some starsan and keep on trucking with it (but this time with a blow off tube, I've learned the lesson...blow off tubes from now on)

I got some cheap vodka tonight so I'm going to soak an ounce of sriracha in there and add it to the secondary. Will keep posted on results.

That sounds, well, terrible, to be honest. A Belgian, with amarillo hops, with sriracha? Ick. But, if you like it that 's all that matters and it might be interesting to try.

Ha! Definitely no certainty on this end either, decided to go out there a bit for it. Most interested in seeing if the non-spice flavors in the sriracha (like garlic) are strong or get lost

Subscribed! Not sure how the amarillo will do with everything but I love hops and spicy food (especially sriracha!) so who knows.

I would have gone the route of chocolate stout with your restrictions. Maybe use one of the milder belgian yeasts like t-58 and ferment a bit on the colder side.

But I like the fact that you are doing something different and I am interested in the results.

Update:
I soaked 1 ounce of sriracha in vodka the night before transferring to secondary and then racked on top of it. Primary fermentation was a week, secondary 13 days.

OG - 1.065, FG - 1.009

I did half in a keg and half in bottles (trying out just domino cane sugar for first time). I was very pleased with the taste going into the keg, I got sriracha and a slight bit of heat but not much and liked the ipa behind it! We'll see how it does with some more time and carbonation, will update with taste next week!

Hey there! I'm entering the same competition, and doing the sriracha beer too. I did a big ol Belgian Stout. I bottled about 4 of the 5 gallons that I brewed a couple days ago, and put the remaining gallon on some Sriracha, since I don't have high hopes for how that will turn out. I'll probably bottle that gallon later this week.

I'm entering the Belgian Stout on its own (16e) as well as the Sriracha "enhanced" version into the wild card category. Good luck!

That sounds awesome, definitely a good call going half/half and entering in both! Good luck to you too, wish I could try all the different sriracha ones

Any updates on this? I'm about to try a brew with sriacha in it and I'd love to know how this turns out.
