I’m trying to organize a pissup (yes, in a brewery, yes, its a test but as most of us are driving I’m not really sure what the point is)with a few mates, 6 of us all up. Can we make a booking for Wed Sept 21st for the tour and pizza?
I would like to include Rare Breed IPA in a forthcoming book, 300 More Beers To Try Before You Die. Could you confirm the varieties of malts and hops you use in the beer, the IBUs and anything special about the way it’s brewed — is it matured for a lengthy period?
PS The website mentioned above is shortly to be replaced by a new site, protzonbeer.co.uk
Thanks for including us! Here goes: We use Australian ale malt, two types of British crystal malts and a touch of wheat malt in the grist. We hop it with Tasmanian Galaxy and US Cascade hops – then late in fermentation we dry hop it with more Galaxy and Cascade to give it a big, fruity aroma and flavour.
It comes in at 6.2% abv, 50BUs with a clear, coppery appearance.
One for the dedicated hopheads…
I live in the states and do not have access to your beer. I am a home brewer and would like to give your IPA a run. I have read many great reviews and as summer is around the corner I was hoping you might share the all grain recipe so that my fiends and I might try it.
