Mikkeller Hop Bomb Challenge 2011
« on: April 05, 2011, 02:44:01 AM »
I just saw this: http://www.mikkeller.dk/index.php?id=4&land=1

Any ideas on what might be a fun recipe to try? I'm going to do a small batch because it'd be easy to prototype and re-brew in time for the 20 May deadline. I've thought about doing some grapefruit juice and honey added post-boil but am unsure of its effect - ideally I'd get that juiciness without contributing outrageously to alcohol content, but who knows. Grain bill, I'm thinking a standard DIPA with a bit of wheat thrown in for protein/head retention.

Although perhaps I could do a double RyePA? Hrm...

Does it work to dry hop with pellets?

That looks fun!

Yes, you can dry hop with pellets. They cause quite a bit of foaming.
