Homework Series #1


Hoppy Red Ale

A Hybrid-Style Ale with a rich, Oktoberfest inspired malt base and a slamming hop profile, very similar to an India Pale Ale. CTZ (Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus) hops are added to the boil for bitterness, and copious amounts of Centennial hops are added during the late kettle hop addition and dry hopping post fermentation.  In the Great American Beer Festival Style Guidelines there is a gap between the American-Style Amber/Red Ale and Imperial Red Ale. This beer fills this gap, whether you call it a Hoppy Red Ale or an India Red Ale, one thing is for sure…you will call it good. Get the recipe to brew this beer here. Homebrew recipe created by: Colby Chandler

This recipe was taken straight from Colby’s Homebrew Recipe book. Red Scent Ale was first brewed in 1998 and it’s fun to see that the recipe has stood the test of time and is still relevant years later. This is Colby’s favorite recipe to share with his home-brewing friends and Home Brew Mart Customers. This recipe was also brewed and served at Colby’s wedding. So it’s fitting that this recipe is the first in the Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits Homework Series. With the recipe on the label, we get to share this great beer with the world.
