Deschutes Hop Trip Fresh Hop Beer clone

FREE

Looking for a wet-hopped (fresh hops) beer recipe? Lucky for us homebrewers, Deschutes was willing to share their recipe for their awesome Hop Trip Fresh Hop Beer. According to their website, “Vine to kettle in less than four hours, we wait restlessly all year for the hop harvest celebration. After bagging these aromatic jewels, we hustle back and toss them into the brew kettles within hours of picking. It’s our one chance to capture the bright citrus and pine essence of fresh hops.”

Fresh Hop Black IPA

FREE

This beer is malty, smooth, with strong hop bitterness, and a wonderful fresh hop aroma to round it out. The use of Midnight Wheat (a dark grain without the harsh bitterness of many dark malts) gives this beer a lack of astringency common in dark beers. Then kick the hop aroma up a notch with the fresh hops and you will love this beer!

Reminder Rings & Filler Hooks

FREE

As homebrewers, we all create our own “small builds” — the minor tweaks we make to improve our brew setups. They’re the small stuff that just makes the brew day a little easier, quicker or less accident-prone. Things like the filling hook that allow you to fill your brewpot or carboy without having to hold the hose and reminder rings so you don’t forget your secondary additions.
