Ommegang has just decided to brew their BPA full-time. It is my favorite beer of theirs. I live 20 mins from the brewery, get to enjoy their beers all the time I know that they brew it with Grapefruit in some capacity. Thanks for any input, direction, etc.

I think it's phenomenal, I need to brew it haha. If I can't find a recipe, I'll just have to start experimenting. Never a bad thing!

unfortunately their website doesn;t help too much, but they list it's 6.2%abv, uses 5 malts, bitters with columbus, has 3 late adds of Celeia (styrian goldings would work as a sub) for aroma, and dry hopped with cascade. If I had to guess, the malts are probably something like belgian pale or pils (or both), vienna, biscuit, wheat, and caravienne

I asked at the brewery. It certainly has a Belgian and American influence. I asked why-

Yeast- Ommegang's Belgian proprietary house yeast
Hops- There are 3, two of which are European hops (sorry, forgot to write down) and the mystery hop is Chelan. I believe it's late boil and dry-hopped with that.
Malt bill- Didn't get there. ?

Sorry, that's all I remember.

I have been doing some research, and have come across the same things. As for special ingredients, I have confirmed that it is brewed with grapefruit and orange, and a touch of corriander. Other than that, it's anyone's guess. I think this will provide a nice start for devising a recipe of my own. If anyone takes a shot at this beer, let us know how it goes and what you did! Cheers.

Did anyone ever go through with trying to brew this? I would love to hear what people came up with. I freaking love this beer.
