Thyme Has Come Today IPA

Homebrewers Association
Homebrewers Association

This spiced beer recipe was originally published in Brewing Eclectic IPA by Dick Cantwell.

Here's your chance to add a spicy twist to the classic IPA! Grab a handful of fresh thyme sprigs (the fancy word for a stem of thyme) and get brewing. Cantwell mentions that thyme works great by itself in this recipe, but it also combines well with other herbs and lots of fruits. Brew eclectic!

Charlie Papazian: "Why do I brew? The answer is simple—it is still fun for me. I love the routine of planning and preparing the ingredients the days before. Then there's the anticipation of waking up in the morning and going out to my brew garage... I mash in, set the timer and have breakfast. I'm brewing, the aroma of malt and hops soon fills the air, and I simply love it."

This creation by AHA founder Charlie Papazian is made in part with agave extract syrup, which is highly fermentable. Bunga-Toggles is robust and strong with with an added complexity from the fruity dry hops. And it's easy to make!
