And so there could only be one winner. It was the last to arrive and the last to be drunk.

With a score of 42 (hoddy's was 41).

A delightful NEIPA, a style so many tried but just couldn't replicate the quality of this.

Congratulations......










@dan125 you are the May 2021 American Pale Ale winner.... athumb..

Woo hoo 🥳
Quite surprised as this neipa didn't turn out quite as planned.... recipe for a 27L batch is below.
Effieciency/OG was quite a bit higher than expected using normal Crisp best and extra pale malt rather than Golden Promise.
The hop aroma is a bit dissappointing considering the dry hop I thought, but it makes up for it a bit with the juicy flavour.....

Mashed at 66
Fermented at 15

The yeast was saved from the previous brew, probs equivalent to 3 dry packs.

Below is the link for my White IPA. I have had issues with bottling pale beers recently so I was just relieved that @Leon103 got a fresh beer with no oxidation 😑. Maybe it was the fly juice that had some scavenging effects....when transferring to the keg I noticed a fly had got into the Fermenter when transferring on brew day😳...turned out ok in the end😬

Yes there was a wing or two in the final beer.

I tried dry hopping cooler with this batch but it just doesn't work for me.... Still trying to find the best way to extract max hop aroma
