Here are some tips for brewing Bloodline at home:
Grist- anything light that accentuates the fruit and hops. Use mainly base malt, with a little wheat and a 1-2% caramel malt addition for color.
Hops- We use Citra and Galaxy in Bloodline. Citra is added near the end of the boil and in the whirlpool. Citra and Galaxy are both added for the dry hop at about 1lb per bbl. Use anything you have that will lend clean bittering.
Yeast-any clean fermenting ale strain, 1056 is a good one.
We shoot for around 40 BUs on this beer with an ABV of 7%
As far as the blood orange, we add blood orange juice when the beer reaches 4 Plato, or roughly 1.016 specific gravity. We also add blood orange peels to the dry hop at half a pound per bbl. we add the blood orange juice at 1 gallon per bbl.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you have any suggestions on the recipe! I will be brewing this bad boy this weekend!
