I have brewed Norther Brewers “Off the Topper” Heady Topper clone a few times now and have one kit left in the freezer. This clone has never been ‘juicy’ to me but a solid hop forward beer. A great brew, but with all of the NEIPA talking happening now, I would like to tweak the recipe to change it up a bit - make a juicy IPA.
Grains & Sugars:
– 12 lb Fawcett Pearl Malt
– 12 oz Baird’s Light Carastan Malt
– 12 oz White Wheat Malt
– 1 lbs Brun Leger sugar
Hops: Hopshot, Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, Apollo
How do I make this a juicy IPA? Add to the grain bill, substitute hops (Citra / Mosaic) or?
What would you do?
