Notes

Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA. In their own words…”An aggressively hopped West Coast-style IPA. Union Jack showcases exceptional dry hop character with stunning pineapple, citrus and piney aromas on the nose accompanied by honey-like malt aromatics. Double dry hopping brings bold grapefruit, tangerine and citrus flavors that are contrasted by pale malt sweetness to balance this intense brew. A true tribute to the style that put the West Coast on the craft beer map.” I was able to collect the following recipe details from their website http://www.firestonebeer.com/beers/products/union-jack 1.060 Original Gravity; 7.5% ABV; 70 IBUs; Light Amber Color (8 SRM)


Dry Hop Schedule

After about 1 week in the primary, transfer to a secondary and dry hop with 1 oz Amarillo, 1 oz Cascade, and 1 oz Centennial.

After about 1 week in the secondary, transfer to a third vessel and dry hop with 1 oz Citra, 1 oz Chinook, and 1 oz Simco.

Carbonate to ~2.5 volumes of CO2 (moderate-high) and enjoy!
