What in the hell is a Brut IPA? This style of beer is quickly gaining popularity among commercial brewers but isn’t available yet in every market. What other reason do we need as a home brewer to give something a try? Since the style is new, there is very little information about where to begin and what ingredients to use. So this makes it difficult as a home brewer to create a style accurate home brewed Brut IPA.
I needed more information before making my first attempt at brewing a Brut IPA. So I reached out to four professional brewers from all across the U.S. and asked for their help. What resulted was an information article with professional advice on how to successfully home brew a style accurate Brut IPA. You can read the article here for more information: Brewing a Brut IPA with Advice From Professional Brewers.
With all of this information in hand, I set forth to create an easy to execute Extract Brut IPA. My goal is to create a recipe that is easy to follow and successfully brew. Here is our brewing tutorial video. I’ll be following this up with a tasting video once fermentation and bottle carbonating have finished.
