Home Brewer's Corner #2

  Welcome back to the Home Brewer's Corner at Mass Hops! I'm Matt Dailey, blogmaster here at Mass Hops, owner of Oilcreek Brewing Co., and an avid home brewer. In this post, I wanted to share my initial notes on another brew I'm working on using Mass Hops artisan hop extract and also share a recipe submitted in our Summer Brews Recipe Contest by brewmaster Caleb Whitenack at Psych Doc Brewery.
  In my first post here at Mass Hops, I wrote about brewing a beer with 25ml of Citra Hop Extract. I was happy with the results, but I felt like I wanted to push the limit of what Mass Hops artisan hop extract could do, so, I decided to brew a NEIPA with 40 ml of Mass Hops Artisan Extract. I chose 20 ml Frosted Citra Hops n' Hemp and 20ml of Citra Extract. I also dry hopped at high krausen with 2oz of Simcoe pellets. I will also be dry hopping with 2 oz of Mosaic Lupomax hops 3 days prior to kegging at 60 degrees Fahrenheit to maximize flavor. Pictures and more to follow when this beer is kegged! Please share your experiences with the amounts you guys are using in your brews too!
  Next, I'm really excited to share Caleb Whitenack's recipe for Golden Calf NEIPA, which he says ended up at 7.5% and is tasty! We will be posting some of Caleb's pictures and videos on Instagram, so make sure to keep an eye out for that.
