NZ Hopped Steam Lager

This is an experimental recipe I’ve done to see whether these hops work with this style. Its gonna end up being a kind of steam hybrid, as its a little bit hoppier than normal, but I’m hoping the relatively simple clean base will allow the hops to shine quite brightly.

  1. It’s being bottled this weekend. The 30/30 APA is being bottled tonight… need to put that recipe up as well with a full breakdown… Seems like a legit thing to do at 5am when you can’t sleep.
