Comments:

A light golden colour grapefruit IPA with a touch of caramel malt and a sledgehammer of citrus.

Mash in high to retain more of the sweet malt and more body as the US-05 yeast will attenuate really well. Only 1 sachet of yeast is needed as the beer isn’t too high in ABV.

Recipe is based on a brew house efficiency of 75% and using Grainfather.

Mash with 18 to 19 litres of water and sparge with 15 to 16 litres of water to get a pre boil volume of 29 litres. Adjust water volume to suit your brewing setup.
