Middle Child Brewing x The Malt Miller – as part of BrewCon 2021 we invited the guys from Middle Child to share a recipe with the home brew community which they would then brew and we’d have on our stand for all to taste and enjoy.
With soft fluffy mouthfeel and body, this East Coast Pale is totally crushable featuring a good dose Mosaic and Simcoe hops. The flavours of mango, berries, wrapped up with piney goodness sit so well in this beer that is such an easy drinker. You’ll find you’ll want to brew this beer over and over once you’ve had it on keg at home.
