All Zythos
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:45:57 AM »
I know Zythos has been touch on a bit here but not for awhile. I have had a pound in the freezer for some time now, and I can't ever fit it into a recipe. I know it's a hop blend. Has anybody ever brewed an all Zythos IPA? I was thinking maybe going crazy and using the whole pound in an IPA.

I love Zythos - I bet it's killer. Never done it but I would.

While not an all Zythos IPA, I did do a Zythos/Mosaic IPA a few months ago (with Magnum for bittering). Hands down the best IPA I have ever made.

A buddy did an all Zythos all Munich IPA that turned out awesome.

I've recently had a few beers that were heavy on the Zythos.  It plays nice with C hops, if you wanna do a blend, but would probably stand up nicely on it's own.
On Tap: Oatmeal Stout
Conditioning: SMASH Pale Ale

it's already a blend no need to blend your own unless you want to.

I did what was supposed to be an all Munich/Zythos APA. Overshot my gravity and didn't account for the maltiness of an all Munich beer so the hop character was lacking. The few impressions that I took away is that this is hop blend I would like to use more in the future. I would like to attempt the same beer at some point and adjust the recipe accordingly.

Yeah... I'm probably not going to go with an all Munich IPA. There's not much that I dislike more is when I purchase a new IPA and the malt outweighs the hops

Yep that was a good lesson for me. It was my first time doing an all-munich beer and I learned quite a lot. I probably needed a couple more ounces in there to get was I was going for. The resulting beer was actually very good and kind of like an American Amber.
