This birthday felt like a big one – after the torrid time we’ve had over the last twelve months, it felt natural to go big or go home this January. With new brewing vessels landing in the brewery this week, we decided to give the rickety old brew kit that carried us through our first three years one hell of a send off with the single biggest beer we’ve ever brewed – pushing ourselves and our equipment to the very limit. So big we had to brew it in two separate batches; we’ve mega-charged this beer with a 15kg whirlpool addition of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe to offset the sweetness of the mash, and rounded off with an 80kg dry-hop addition of Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, Sabro, to create a potent, bonafide hop bomb; bringing all manner of sticky, juicy tropical notes, and piney bitterness to play off the warming booze in this feat of alchemy from the brew kit that served us so well for the last three years. Happy birthday to us.
