Robbie and the Godiva® Lager

10th December 2018

This is the latest development brew.  A lager single-hopped with Godiva®.

I’ve been itching to brew this beer since smelling the hops green earlier this year.

With top notes of gooseberry, white grape & tangerine, this should be a deliciously fruity, crisp & moreish beer.

Robbie and the Brut IPA

Last month Robbie tried S-33 as a New England IPA yeast. This month’s test brew was a Brut IPA. Using Crisp Malt grain, Fermentis US-05 & the all-important amyloglucosidase from Murphy & Son Ltd. He went #Wellhopped with Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook & Comet for a classic West Coast hop-profile plus a healthy addition of Motueka.

The Faram’s technical and sales teams tried the beer on Friday and it went down extremely well.
Most people hadn’t tried an example of this style and enjoyed it. As per usual I was perhaps guilty of adding too many hops in, but we all felt this was a good first attempt at the style.

The main lesson to come out of this is that we can say US-05 is a good yeast to use when producing this style.

Robbie and the NEIPA experiment

October 2018

We’re putting S-33 through its paces as an NEIPA yeast strain

Faram’s Robbie is producing a special test brew on our pilot kit for our chums at Fermentis to test the suitability of their S-33 yeast strain when brewing the ‘New England IPA’ style beer.

The recipe typical of the style with a soft water profile, lots of oats in the mash and heaps of Azacca, El Dorado and Amarillo in the kettle and fermenter. The beer is currently conditioning and awaiting its final tasting, but initial signs are interesting!

Have you noticed the E2U, easy to use logo on some of the Fermentis products? To obtain the E2U™ label, they are subjected to numerous tests to validate four fundamental criteria: Efficiency · Simplicity · Safety · Durability
