Description: Firstly we’d like to make a correction to our last Brewer’s edition newsletter – it appears our honourable leader may not have been napping in the chair after all. He’s claiming he was chilling out and resting his eyes – we’re inclined to think he was tripping……. how else does he come up with all the great ideas? Napinthechair had big hop bitterness and a snappy dry finish for a 4% Pale Ale and that was our definitely our intention. With Acid Trip we chased a little more of that Emerson’s malt balance by backing off on the US Centennial hop and grooving in a lot more US Zythos and US Simcoe at the end of the boil. The “other technique” we said we were going to use – well we were tripping ourselves a little when we wrote that. Buuut…. We did use a technique called fermenter hopping – adding hops into the fermenter halfway through the ferment. No dry hopping this time. The result is a more rounded session pale ale with softer juicier hop flavours and that nice Emerson’s malt fullness. The alcohol level is lifted a little to 4.5% abv to fill out the ale and lift the esters a touch. Version three is hitting the brew kettle today … this time there will be more to go around – a few trips on, a few pints and we’ll conjour up something new for your mojo.
