Default All-Grain - Southern Gem NZPA

Recipe Type: All Grain

Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.056

Brewed this a month or so back and it has to be the best beer I've brewed so far. The hop combination is fantastic and is balanced by the malt. This is the first version of my house NZPA so I'll be interested to hear what advice anyone has if they try the recipe out.

This is an old thread, but I'm curious if you can tell me what to expect for flavor and aroma from pacific gem. I've read about melon and earthy notes. I've got a single hop ipa in the fermenter w pacific gem and the curiosity is killing me.

Cheers.

Sorry I didnt see this for so long, I find that Pacific Gem seems to give a darker berry and woody flavour although I have only used in as a single hop in darker beer styles. The Southern Cross gives lemon and pine. How did the beer turn out?

Is this beer more of a caramel flavored body? Not a huge fan of caramel bodied IPA but I love citrusy IPA

The beer turned out well. I used a Briess pale ale as a base with small amounts of Carapils, C20, toasted pale, and wheat. I dry-hopped with 4 ounces of Pacific Gem. I definitely agree with the dark berry and woodsy qualities. I also picked up some melon and oddly enough nutmeg. This hop has great qualities, but I think it doesn't stand well alone. I think it needs another well rounded variety for full effect.

Thanks,

Peter
