Notes

Batch #1- 26/5/19 - Eff. 54% - Vol. 21L
Finger lime IPA, based on a Session IPA (4.6%) but upped ABV to around 5%

Substitutes;

  • Gladfield Light Crystal for Caramalt
  • Didn't get Mand. Bav. hops, Magnum was sent instead.

    5/6/19 - SG: 1013, dry hopped.
    9/6/19 - Added 120g of frozen/thawed finger lime pearls, looks very juicy and cloudy, SG: 1013.
    12/6/19 - Cold crashed.
    16/6/19 - Kegged, added 120g of frozen/thawed finger lime pearls. Tasting slightly of lime and very clean.
    17/6/19 - Force carbed at 30psi for 2min 45 sec, pretty full keg with limited head space.
    2/6/19 - Tastes of bitter lime, especially on the back, not too strong but next time I'll use more in season finger limes for a sweeter finish. This is quite well received and should do again.
