Notes

From (Andy Mitchell @ NB)

Bittering: Nugget (very very small amount)
Whirlpool: 50% Crystal, 25% Azzaca, 25% Centennial…total >90% of the hops used in the boil
Dry Hop: Simcoe, Galaxy, Mandarina Bavaria, Cascade, Citra, Chinook, tangerine peel

That dry hop is crazy, the largest portions are Cascade and Citra

If it were me, I would split the late kettle hop addition between a 10 min addition and a flameout / whirlpool addition. I think that would replicate what we do better because of how our process works. Even though we use the peel in dry hop (it’s a powder) you may have better luck using it at flameout if it’s fresh zest…or maybe both dry hop and flame out.

How can we tell who posted this? It says NB does that mean this is a customers take on what they think would be a clone or is this actually from someone at the brewery?

I liked the 6 pack in the store, so reached out to a brewer I correspond with at New Belgium, to understand the recipe... this turns out fantastic, almost identical to the real deal... but do not forget the tangerine peel...

Also, keep a close eye on the water profile

I will like to know if I wanna brew 50 liters, what is the recipie.


juanlocal 02/01/2018 at 01:37am
The 5 days hops are added all at the same time at the 5th day?
