Notes

Pitch the yeast at 65°F (18°C) and ramp up the temperature to 75°F (24°C) over 48 hours. The brewery says, “Bursting with aromas of passion fruit, mango, and peach, our imperial saison is brewed using New Zealand Rakau hops. Combined with notes of pepper and ginger produced by our house yeast strain, Tropic King has a unique flavor that has gained it a loyal following. Serve at 50°F (10°C) in a tulip glass.” Gordon adds, “We account for whirlpool isomerization at the brewery, so homebrewers may want to increase the 60-minute bittering addition.”
