Viper XPA BeerCo All Grain Recipe Kit is a super light malt body eXtra Pale Ale that is fully hopped with fruit forward tropical hops and fermented out nice and bone dry. Rather like a Viper it slides down easy but be careful as there is enough in this XPA to make you forget her capability to give you a sting if you are not enjoying yourself responsibly.

Two Malts - Crisp Europils and Dextrin Malt and Two Hops - El Dorado® and Equanot™ who will dance off to the tune of GY001 Nor Cal Ale #1 GigaYeast. The simplicity of this beer is its natural brilliance. If you like SMaSH beers (Single Malt and Single Hop) you will love the Viper XPA a TMaTH (Two Malt and Two Hop) harmony and balance in the top of your mouth going south fast - watch her, she has a sting in her tail!

We recommend you ferment this one nice and dry with your choice of West Coast Ale Yeast - we like GY001 Nor Cal Ale #1 GigaYeast.

Viper | XPA can be supercharged a little more with whatever extra fresh aromatic hops you have left lying around for a single or double dry hop or you can let it sing on its own and this is the type of beer that will be a winner with a wide audience of friends and family, male and female.  Brew Easy and Enjoy Responsibly Always!

Method:

  1. Clean - Rinse - Sanitise your Fermenter!
  2. Yeast & Fermentation - Pour your Fresh Wort Kit into the fermenter aerating well and bring to pitching temp 18-20 °C.
  3. Oxygenate your wort and pitch your yeast and start your ferment at 18 °C letting it free rise to 22 °C.
  4. Over the course of the two-week fermentation, ramp the temperature up to 23°C (73 °F ) to ensure full attenuation.
  5. On approximately Day 5 of fermentation when attenuation has reached about 80%, add the first dry hop addition of 50 grams of El Dorado .
  6. Wait 3 days, then remove the first dry hop addition and add the second addition of 50 grams of Ekuanot hops and dry hop for another 3 days.
  7. When finished, carbonate the beer to approximately 2.5 volumes (5 g/L) of CO2 (or add 125g of table sugar or 180g of Light Dried Malt Extract if bottling) and drink fresh. Prost!
  8. Bottling or Kegging - Carbonate to 2.5 volumes of CO2.
