Today we canned up the latest batch of Clouds with a revised and tweaked recipe.
The portion of Cara malt has been cut in half and the mash temperature raised to maintain sweetness but without the caramel flavour. Summit joins chinook in the whirlpool instead of at flameout so the bitterness is reduced but the ‘joose’ increased.
We’re all beyond pleased with how this batch has turned out and it reminds us of how excited we were when we tried the very first brew of Above The Clouds.
The new recipe tweaks have lowered the colour, increased the mouthfeel and heightened the hop presence to a whole other level.
There is tangerines, pineapple and sticky drippy mango for days with a restrained bitterness and beautiful malt sweetness.
