Question: I fell in love with the Quinannan Falls. I know that I can’t get the recipe for this delicious brew, but any information regarding grain bill, hops, etc. would be appreciated so I can try and recreate this at home.
Answer: Start with a base of Pilsner malt and add a touch of Carapils or other dextrin malt for some body. Shoot for a gravity just shy of 1.060.
Hopping is simple – use your favorite American hop for bittering and a flavor addition (60 and 30-minute additions) – shoot for around 50 IBUs.
Ferment with your favorite German lager yeast – something clean.
Dry hop with a moderate amount of Simcoe and a small amount of something noble, like Saaz or Hershbrucker.
That’s it. Ferment cool and lager cold.
