    Packer's Westy

    West Coast IPA – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.061 – FG 1.012– ABV 6.4% - IBU 74 – SRM 4

    This month’s recipe is one from a longtime KJ customer. We tried his West Coast IPA at a brewing club meeting in September and were blown away. We knew right away we had to brew it ourselves and share it with everyone else. It has a great balance of hop aroma and flavour, along with a light but crisp malt expression. It’s a throwback recipe to the original IPA style with lots of good clean bitterness punctuated with pine and citrus hop notes. The Cali ale yeast ferments it clean and well.
