Brut IPA is a beer style honouring characteristics from one of the world’s best-loved sparkling wines, Champagne. “Brut” is one of the driest forms of champagne wine and heavily influences the conventions of this modern IPA; pale in colour, dry finish and highly aromatic. Residual sugars, malt character and complexity are not desired but an extra dry finish is complimented with a highly intense aroma, derived from significant late and dry hop additions whilst minimising bitterness.
The key and defining character of the Brut IPA is full attenuation, which can be achieved with the addition of ABV Glucoamylase 400 (AMG enzyme) throughout the brewing process as per our recommended procedure found in the downloadable PDF below.
