Comments:

This SMASH (Single malt and single hop) recipe showcases Strata in all its glory, full of tropical notes, dank undertones and a solid bitterness. The perfect hop for a single hop beer due to its complexity and versatility. The use of Simpsons Golden Promises compliments the hop choice perfectly with its sweet malty flavour which works to enhance the tropical notes of the hops.

Holding the mash out temperate for slightly longer than usual helps to develop a little more colour into the finished beer and mashing towards the higher end of the range (68c) also works to retain some body in the mouthfeel.

Using US-05 gives you a clean ferment and little to no yeast profile, which again allows for the hops to shine through.

This beer is a great, easy drinking and accessible one to enjoy with friends and family love the warmer months.
