i just discovered this wonderful brew yesterday, and immediately after trying it i wanted to make a batch.
the dude that was sampling these beers works for boulevard, and he said that the bittering hops are whatever high alpha hop they have on hand, usually zeus or bravo. summit brings more to the hop party, and the cascade/NS dry hop are what hits you in the nose. i could pick up on the NS right away since it's my current favorite hop.
since it was getting late and i wanted to strike the brewing iron while it was still hot, i just made a full extract version. also i was at the hardware store after going to the bar and i had to settle for what i could find.
3.3 lbs light LME (yeah it's from a can, make do with what you got!)
3 lbs wheat DME
1 lb. extra light DME
60 min: .5 oz Magnum (13.5% AA)
5 min: .5 oz summit (17.6%)
flameout: .5 oz summit (17.6%)
dry hop with .5 oz each of cascade, summit, and nelson sauvin
left the bar at 7, left the hardware store at 8, water was boiling by 10 and yeast was pitched by midnight. i love doing these last-minute sessions!
i'm planning on doing this again, only with proper ingredients, like actual wheat. this is mainly a test to see if i got the hops correct.
hmm...i wonder how a bit of rye would work in this??
i love this hobby
