Raw NEIPA with Gulo™ Ale: The Melding of the Old and New Worlds

Img 20190217 162113320

An odd couple can prove, in combination, to be a harmonious pair: take pineapple and pizza (fight me), or bacon and peanut butter. It was this idea that drove us to mate the steadily clean character of our Irish Ale with the ravenous attenuation of our French Saison to create our newest, powerful hybrid, Gulo™ Ale.

To celebrate Gulo's own unusual fusion, we developed a recipe that brings together old world brewing with the new: a raw New England IPA. Using a grist high in adjunct grain (raw and flaked wheat) and only whirlpool hop additions to achieve fruitiness without noticeable bitterness, this beer checks all of the boxes between disparate styles.

Use your personal favorite yeast for a standard NEIPA: British Ale V (OYL-011), DIPA Ale (OYL-052), Voss Kveik (OYL-061), or our newest hybrid strain, Gulo™ Ale (OYL-501) to push the ABV into DIPA territory.

  • 1 Homebrew pack of Gulo™ Ale (OYL-501), (British Ale V (OYL-011), DIPA Ale (OYL-052), or Voss Kveik (OYL-061). We recommended using a 1L starter considering the OG is on the higher end. Have you tried our Propper Starter™ wort cans?

Add grain to 7 gallons water at 166°F for a target mash of 156°F. Hold mash temp for 60 minutes. Recirculate mash until wort is free from large amounts of grain. Drain off wort into boil kettle for approximately 6.25 gallons (sparge as needed for a “pre-boil” gravity of 1.071). Bring wort to 180°F (Do Not Boil!). Whirlpool hops as specified in recipe for 20 minutes. Chill wort & pitch yeast as directed. After 24 hours, add first hop addition as specified in directions. When terminal gravity has been reached, add final dry hop addition. Crash after two days from second dry hop.

Cheers!
