    Bottling a Triple NEIPA

    Okay so I've made a Triple 10% New England IPA BIAB as my second brew ever. I know I know I went in at the deep end but go big or go home! I just thought I would keep a record of any change in colour and oxidation on here and if you're interested just follow a long. Ask me any questions! The...

    Dry Hopping enough?

    I’ve made a couple neipa’s lately with varying degree of success. But the one thing that seems to be eluding me is getting a strong fruity, juicy, flavour from the dry hopping. I’ve used mosaic, simcoe, citra, azacca (?) and up to 12 oz. in a 5 gallon batch. Also used imperial dry hop yeast and...

    NEIPA bottling experiment using Daraform Oxygen Scavenging caps

    I have just bottled my first NEIPA, (6th Feb 2021). I have read a lot about people trying to purge headspace with CO2 and seen all the 'discussion' that occurs as a result. I don't have a keg setup or any smaller means of getting CO2 into my bottle. So I was aiming to try bottling with a very...

    Transfer IPA to Bottling Bucket During Active Fermentation? (oxidation issue)

    Hey y'all! Hear me out on this one and let me know if you think this might help. I've tried to brew 3 IPAs with dry hop additions and each one turned out oxidized. I wouldn't go as far as calling all of these NEIPAs, but they're similar. So far I have followed the general guidelines: 2...

    Purging headspace when bottling

    Am about to bottle a NEIPA for the first time and I understand that a lot of people have issues with oxidation. After some reading I'm convinced that purging the headspace after filling the bottle of O2 is a good way of extending the shelf life. I'll be bottle priming as I don't have any kegging...

    Haze dropping after a few weeks

    I have been making NEIPA's for a couple years. I've got pretty good at the overall making of it. They usually come out hazy, juicy pretty close to the style. But they all seemingly begin loosing the haze after a 2-3 weeks? They still taste good but the haze just drops. Does anyone have an idea...

    First time using A24 imperial yeast- lagging

    Hey guys, First time poster, long timer reader. Thought I would share my NEIPA status. It goes not so great. Been about 25 hours since pitching yeast into about 76-78 degree wort. I quick-cooled it down to 64 by turning fermenter on blast (about 3 hours on). it got down to a good temp and...

    NEIPA Fermentation Schedule (Bottling)

    Hi all, Over the weekend I brewed my first all-extract NEIPA, and have a few questions about fermentation I was hoping to get cleared up. As an overview, I made a 2.5 gallon batch and my brew OG was 1.061 (targeted 1.060) and I pitched ~50 billion cells of WLP067. I had airlock activity...

    Low Oxygen Dry Hop

    Cold crashing now from 90 degrees to 65 degrees over a day or so. Yeast- Omega Hot Head Ale Kveik Here's the dilemma, I was hoping to dry hop using a sight glass/butterfly valve to minimize oxygen exposure. Due to my kegerators height, I would have to move the fermenter out and then do the...

    Northern Brewer Chinook IPA (Modified)

    Hey everyone, I'm brand new to homebrewing and decided to purchase the Northern Brewers Homebrew Starter Kit which came with a Chinook IPA kit. I wanted to modify this a little to make it into a hazy/NEIPA style IPA. I decided to replace the Chinook hops with Citra hops and will use LA III 1318...

    Double NEIPA recipe advice

    I want to brew my first Double New England IPA with three "C-hops": Citra, Columbus and Centennial (because I have these laying around). Normally I brew 20 liters/5 gallons batches but this recipe is for 15 liter/4 gallons. The recipe is inspired on some articles I've read and other recipes. I'm...

    Dealing with hop harshness in neipas

    Hey guys, been trying to brew neipas lately. I finally got the level of hop flavor i wanted, however it's the wrong sort of flavors. It's like just chewing straight into a hop pellet, super harsh and grassy. Can you guys give me any advice on getting fruitiness out of the hops instead?

    Keeping Up With Trends: The New England IPA

    Whether "New England Style" (NE style) pale ales and IPAs are in fact new styles are a matter of some debate. While there are breweries outside of New England and even the northeast creating them, the style is most prevalent in New England. What isn't debatable is the impact these beers are...

    Low O2 keg transfer issue and help with hop pickup

    I was attempting to do a low oxygen transfer from carboy to keg using my ss racking cane and liquid in through the dip tube. I was even using a BIAB around the cane to avoid excess hop material in the keg when about half way through the transfer, liquid stopped. Tried moving the cane, bag, post...

    Tree House / Monkish rounded upfront non-lingering bitterness

    I have been trying to achieve a pronounced bitterness that is upfront on the tongue but does not stick around. Has anyone achieved this? Best example would be Tree House and Monkish beers. I've played with co2 extract, water profiles, ph, different types of bittering hops. Fwh, 60min till wp...

    How to bottle NEIPA (without kegging)

    There's a fair amount of skepticism on various online platforms surrounding NEIPA and being able to bottle it without having a kegging setup. With a little caution and a good process, I've been able to successfully bottle my NEIPA's. I have been able to drink these 2 months after bottling with...

Grain bill of...

    The Quest for the Perfect session NEIPA!

    I have been experimenting for a while now to find a good balance for a seasonable NEIPA. And I will continue doing so. At what ABV would you consider A session NEIPA to be? I'm thinking at least under 5% ABV.
