HB NEIPA: 7.7%, went with a new hot side combo. Instead of a solid Columbus/cascade mix, I went with Waimea (all late boil additions) and cascade/cascade lupomax in WP. Hydro sample came out nice and tropical with a lil resinous feel from the Waimea which I wanted. dry hopped for a tropical leaning pineapple vibe with el dorado, vic secret, and Citra LUPOMAX. Not quite fully matured yet but I dig it. Nice tropical with some nice true hop with resin vibe and pineapple on the back of the swallow. Kind of surprised the Waimea carried all the way through. Pretty happy with this one.

Sexy.

May I ask your grain bill?
Well considering you called me sexy, I guess I need to put out right? err, perhaps you were calling the beer sexy lol. Anyways, here it is:

62.5% (12.5lbs) 2 row - rahr
20% (4lbs) Spelt - best maltz
10% (2lbs) malted oats - thomas fawcett
7.5% (1.5lbs) carafoam - weyermann

My OG was 1.075 and FG was 1.016. Ive been targeting 1.015-16 lately and like the results. I really like the ~7.7% ABV with this grain bill a lot. For me its the sweet spot for this style. Great mouthfeel without being chewy or heavy. It drinks like a standard strength beer, not a double at all.

Ive pretty much been using this grain bill for a while and making small tweaks to it such as upping the carafoam from 6% to 7.5%. Im sure if you don't have spelt, white wheat would be totally fine. I just think that spelt is "fluffier/pillowier" when you get to ~20% of the grain bill compared to white wheat. For me, I have also been preferring having the wheat being favored over the malted oats in general.

Enjoy!

Maris otter and mosaic SMASH pale ale.. wound up looking like a hazy IPA, likely because I used imperial citrus. Delicious!

HB Bretted Belgian pale. An attempt to save a total disaster that I believe suffered from some serious autolysis during our 40°C heat wave whilst under 10PSI.

Worked incredibly well. All of the marmite flavour has gone, now it's mildly funky with some cidery dry and slightly overripe apple and pear. Actually might be one of my favourite beers I've brewed recently, and evidence that almost nothing is un-saveable. :)

HB cascadian black ale. My recipe.
I don’t brew mine a lot, maybe only once every 12-18 months but I’m a huge fan of the style.

How do you approach it? An ipa that’s only black in color or do you look to get some roast/chocolate in the charavter?

I like it. It's got a session-strength Tank 7 vibe -- American hoppy and Belgian peppery.

This version was extract; I'm going to work on perfecting an all-grain version.
Cool. Im a big fan of hoppy Saisons! Do the hops give you the descriptors they claim? Peppery mango pineapple sounds great to me.

I get more peppery than fruity ... but this was my first use of them; so it's possible the peppery-ness from the yeast reenforced that aspect.
