A BIG IPA! Expect a BIG juicy and full on beer with tons of citrus

Imperial I22 Capri - BB: 29/03/2024

Juicy ester aromatics, tropical flavors, and bright citrus notes emphasize the desirable qualities from the two popular parent strains: A38 Juice & A43 Loki

LALLEMAND New England 11g Beer Yeast

LalBrew® New England is an ale strain selected specifically for its ability to produce a unique fruit forward ester profile desired in East Coast styles of beer. A typical fermentation with LalBrew®  New England will produce tropical and fruity esters, notably stone fruits like peach.

Imperial Yeast A38 Juice. BB: 29/02/2024

Juicy. Fruity. Juice is an amazing strain for East Coast IPAs. The ester profile of Juice brings out the aromas and flavors of the new school hops and creates a beer that is greater than the sum of its parts.

WLP066 London Fog Ale - PurePitch® Next Generation BB: 06/06/2024

This strain is a great choice for New England-style IPAs. It produces a medium-ester profile similar to WLP008 East Coast Ale Yeast and leaves some residual sweetness, which helps accentuate both malt and hop flavors and aromas.

Following BrewCon in 2022 Richard Williams from the Dudes Brew YouTube Channel and The Hop Addition Podcast wanted to learn how best to use his samples of BarthHaas® Hop Products such as Spectrum and Incognito. He reached out to Stiffo and asked for some advice on an all grain kit  and as such the recipe for Focal Spectrum was born!

This recipe takes inspiration from Focal Banger by The Alchemist but also showcases the new hop products in their glory! We have used Citra Incognito in whirlpool,  Citra Spectrum in the Dry Hop and layered Mosaic Pure Hop Pellets through the process as well!

Expect a BIG juicy and full on beer with tons of citrus, mango and passionfruit across the flavours and aroma, plenty of body and residual sweetness.

You can check out Richard’s video on this project, featuring an interview with Stiffo here.

Please Note – Brewer must choose their yeast option as this kit doesn’t come with one automatically
