Citra Sour

Sour India Pale Ale

Creative Series

We took an unconventional approach to souring this particular brew. First, we mashed in and collected the sweet wort before moving it to the kettle to be brought to a boil. From there, we added lactobacillus and let it sour for 2 days (a drop from 5.4 pH to3.7 pH). After souring, we transferred it back to the kettle for boil to kill the lactobacillus and to get the hopping of an American IPA. Lactobacillus is inhibited by the preservative quality in hops completely if IBU is above 34. This is why we soured it prior to hopping. Souring with lactobacillus brings out the hop flavor in this IPA and makes it pop. This unusual approach makes for a different, yet enjoyable flavor profile. For freshest flavor, store below 40˚ F
