Kegging the Dopplehop
The “Dopplehop,” which we never gave a proper name, is an experiement in the SMASH style (or single malt and single hop). A Gingerbeards Brewing collaboration brewed on 4/28/13.
- 14 lb Vienna malt
- 4 oz Perle hops
- Wyeast 2206 (x2)
OG: 1.071 | FG: 1.019
We didn’t document the brew day on this one, but I do have video of the fermentation the morning after (it wasn’t exactly unexpected). My apologies for the sparse, gravelly-voiced narration; I’m really not a morning person.
It’s an interesting beer, but not what any of us expected going in to the brew day. It’s got a lot of butterscotch to it, has some bitterness, and I wouldn’t describe it as particularly “hoppy.”
