  1. TRIPLE IPA London Amateur Brewers. 17 January 2022 Ian Cosier

    & James Wilson
  2. ▪ What is a Triple IPA? ▪ Classic examples ▪

    How to brew one – Malt, hops, yeast, water – Mash, enzymes, fermentation – Dry hopping, post fermentation ▪ Recipes and experience
  3. What is a Triple IPA? ▪ The Bistro, and TIPA

    History ▪ No BJCP definition…extrapolate ▪ What we think it is… – 10%-12% abv…then quad…. – Exaggerated DIPA – dry, bitter, huge hops – Retains drinkability (c1.008 FG), 100+ IBU’s – But…modern examples include both West Coast classic and hazy
  4. 'Classic' examples and UK ones ▪ Russian River - Pliny

    the Younger 10.2% ▪ Bells - Hopslam 10% ▪ Heretic - Evil 3 11.5% ▪ Stone – RuinTen 10.8% (no longer brewed) ▪ Hazys – Ruse Brewing, Adroit Theory, Mountains Walking, Monkfish Range of of classic old school examples and newer hazys ▪ Cloudwater – various releases – The Realest, A Path Travelled, Chubbles c10% ▪ Deya – Such Magic Never Lasts 10.5% ▪ Pollys – Controversy Between Deep 10% ▪ Magic Rock – Unhuman Canonball 11% Almost all hazy, chewy, tropical. Mainly seasonal.
  5. How to brew one 1. Attenuation 2. Hops

  6. How to brew one - Malts ▪ Pale ale/Pils +

    Munich/Vienna if backbone required. ▪ NEIPA TIPA 20% flaked oats/wheat/rye ▪ Not US Barleywine. Avoid crystal malts ▪ Alcohol increases perception of sweetness ▪ Dextrose (10%) ▪ Pale DME depending on mash tun etc OR longer boil
  7. How to brew one ▪ Hopping – hot side –

    Alcohol and malt flavour reduces perception of IBU’s & aroma – Reducing vegetal volume - decrease yield – tannin risk – Flex or CO2 extract for bittering. Dissolve in alcohol or hot wort – Late hops: Incognito, Cryo, Lupomax – Not the time for EKG or Saaz, NOT leaf hops!! – Old school vs New school
  8. How to brew one ▪ Yeast – Attenuation e.g, Nottingham,

    WLP001, WLP099 – English strains for hazys – Quantity - pre-brew a starter beer, overpitch – Kveik an interesting option ▪ Water – Sulphates for crispness – 110-350ppm! – Epsom salts can avoid calcium – Chloride for hazys
  9. How to brew one ▪ Mashing – Low and LONG…overnight

    – Worth fly sparging ▪ Enzymes – Mash (boil, fermentation) ▪ Fermentation – Higher gravity – less O2 absorption, up to 4x dose – 2x yeast nutrient – Temp control for initial and final stages
  10. How to brew one ▪ Dry hopping – Shellhammer, Oregon

    State, 8g/L – Short and cool (14 deg, 2-3 days) – Rouse, swirl, pump – Multiple additions. 12hrs for haze/biotrans. Aromazyme – Keg hopping ▪ Post-fermentation – Acidification 4.5pH – Lactose addition for hazys – Carbonation level for crispness Mean values of overall hop aroma intensity (OHAI; black circles), Citrus (white circles) and Herbal/tea (gray circles) s ensory attributes vs dry-hopping rate. Lafontaine & Shellhammer 2018
  11. Process Difficulties ▪ Achieving attenuation – Grist, mash, enzymes etc

    – Hop creep less likely to aid – Building lots of yeast ▪ Dealing with loads of hops – straining kettle, dump yeast ▪ Avoiding oxygen. Keg it. Purge. ▪ Drink fresh. Hop burn
