Folksbier's first Double IPA and our first brew on our new 10bbl system. This Double IPA is built on a base of 2-Row and Pilsner malts with heavy additions of wheat and oats and features a similar water profile and hopping schedule to our Recurring Dreams series. We added Amarillo and Cashmere hops to the whirlpool and dry hopped with more Amarillo and Simcoe, lastly we double dry hopped this beer with the most Cryo hops we've ever used to date.
Cryo Hops or LupuLN2 is a Yakima Chief hop product created by freezing whole flower hops at extreme low temperatures to separate the lupulin from the bract. This allows them to make concentrated lupulin pellets that are made up of aromatic oils and hop compounds that brewers can add to beer which contain less plant matter than regular T-90 hop pellets.
