I have been starting to brew my own beer this year. After travelling New Zealand for quite some time, I finally realised that beer is awesome. NZ is full of micro-breweries and awesome beers. Thank you!
Thanks to a nice british fella we met in Wellington I learned about Brew In A Bag (BIAB). Basically you mash in a bag, so you can skip the lautering and just take the bag out after your mashing is done. There are plenty of brewing instructions as well as BIAB instruction online, so I won’t get into detail here.
Today I am brewing an IPA recipe with Perle, Cascade and Amarillo Gold hops. But, I don’t have Cascade and Amarillo Gold, so I will substitute those with Motueka hops. Good old New Zealand style …
