The follow homebrew recipe comes courtesy of Jared Hatch. Variations of this recipe have won the Korean National Homebrewing Championship twice.

The citrus flavors from the kumquats pair beautifully with the Citra hop character. Hatch likes to use Cryo Hops when dry hopping to reduce absorption losses. He does a clean primary fermentation before racking to secondary, where he adds the Roeselare culture. Once the gravity is stable and the beer has the desired Brett aromatics and sourness, the beer is racked onto the kumquats.
