Trillium DDH Fort point cannot be recreated with extract, but that will not stop me from trying..Columbus for bitters.Replace CITRA hops with Mosaic, Nelson, or your favorite Fruity oil hop.

Thanks to Trillium for providing ingredients and tips on Brew forums! Go buy some from Trillium while you are at it because no matter how close you get it will not be better than what they put out.

WATER: Currently just use filtered from fridge, but may look into improving this.

DRY HOPS: The guy at Trillium I talked to said they don't put Columbus in the Dry Hop so take it for what its worth. I only put an oz but may try messing with the hopping schedule.

Starter -> 1.5 L with 1/4 teaspoon of Yeast Nutrient, Stir plate and 45 sec Aeration

Steep grains in bag 20 minutes at temp 150-170

Whirlpool hops in Bag

Primary and secondary done in ss brew tech 7 gallon Ss Brew Tech 7 Gallon Chronical Fermenter

Dump TRUB 1 -> day 3 small amount

Dry Hops round 1 days 3-7(In bag with unflavored Floss so I can remove)

Dump TRUB 2 -> day 7

Dry Hops round 2 -> days 8-12(In bag with unflavored Floss so I can remove). May also try second dry hop in keg so I do not have to oxidize beer when opening fermentor.

Dump TRUB 3 -> 12

Let sit 3-7 days before transfer. I currently do not cold crash, but may try in future.

co2 transfer at 2 psi from fermentor to co2 perged keg so beer is not oxidized.

Force Carbonate at 12 psi with Co2 for 5 days( or shake for 7 minutes at 20 PSI then 12 psi for 1-2 days if in rush)

Beer came out good, but tasted nothing like DDH Fort Point.
