Traditional brett aged IPA?

Postby Rolfster » Sat Apr 30, 2016 21:36

Looks like I'm going to be making one of these in the near future. Anyone made one?
I'm thinking MO, EKG, Burton yeast and brett C.
Aging for a year.
Any thoughts?

I understand you'd want a lot of hops as they'll fade with time. I'm not sure of exact IBUs though

FV - Altbier
Bottled: Blond & Amber Biere De Garde, Blond & Amber French Ale, Belgian Pale
Planned: More Altbier, Kolsch, XX Bitter Clone

A small tip, hops high in beta acids apparently hold their bitterness better than those higher in alpha acids. Worth looking into for long ageing beers.
