I brewed this today, and expect it to be amazing so I haven't actually sampled it yet. It was a beautiful day, warm and breezy and I didnt have to work so I felt like I was on vacation, hence the name. I'm also looking for a little fruit to come through in the flavors to keep it tropical. Should be pretty sessionable for an IPA.
1lb Crystal 80L
1oz Nelson Sauvin 90mins
1oz Willamette 15 mins
1oz Willamette 1min
0.25oz Nelson Sauvin dry hop
0.25oz Willamette dry hop
Yeast nutrient and Whirlfloc at 15mins
Mash @152F, 1.5qt/lb thickness.
My mash efficiency was about 79% with one batch sparge, so I had an OG of 1.055. Hoping to ferment out a few points lower than calculated 1.019 as well.
Secondary for dry hopping 2-3weeks, per desired hop aroma intensity
Bottle to style, 2.2-2.7vols CO2. I like light DME to prime.
Enjoy, and let me know what you think! I'll do the same!
