Have you ever wished you could crush your enemies and consume their life force!? .... yeah *cough* nor have we. But the same can't be said for the Juicy Brut! This maniacal monarch didn’t gain support for his claim to the throne through strategic wedding arrangements, nor did he bring his challengers to heel through deftly negotiated treaties. Oh, no. He conquered the realm using his dry, brutish nature and sheer force of juiciness. When the Juicy Brut enters the fray wielding his pulp-stained battle axe, he yawps but one maxim -- no quarter!

Juicy Brut IPA has a pronounced dry character with almost no malt sweetness, setting the stage for the Mosaic®, Amarillo® and Citra® hops to be on full display. Leaning heavily on whirlpool and post fermentation additions, the tropical flavor of these hops come bursting forth with aromas of lemon, orange, grapefruit, passionfruit and mango. We can offer only one piece of advice. Bend the knee and swear fealty to the Juicy Brut!

This recipe was developed by our own award winning Brewmeister Vito Delucchi as he was researching and writing an Article on Brut IPAs for BYO (Brew Your Own Magazine). Curious about Brut IPAs? Vito also wrote an article for MoreBeer.com on the subject. You can check out that article here: There and Back Again, A Brut IPA Tale! Throw on your favorite traveling cloak and join Vito on his quest to unlock the mysteries of the amyloglucosidase enzyme and discover the best methods for brewing Brut IPAs.

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Recommendations for whirlpool hop addition method, i.e. time & temp to stir wort? remove and toss hops after whirlpool or leave in fermenter?
Timothy J. Pfister on May 8, 2023
BEST ANSWER: I remove the hops after about 10 minutes into the stirring process. I never leave it in the fermenter
This kit arrived and I notice that the Ultra Ferm Enzyme notes a storage temp of 39-46 degrees, which I was unaware of when ordering. Will the enzyme still be good if it was shipped without any cold packs?

Juicy Brut IPA
I just popped the first bottle open tonight and shared it with my wife. We both agreed that we will definitely be ordering Juicy Brut again. Juicy Brut certainly lives up to its name. It is "juicy" and tastes as if it were sweet, but I know it is one of the driest brews that I've ever made.

Congratulations on an Excellent kit More Beer. Delicious! (I'm really glad that I have 53 more bottles of this!!!)

Love this one
Super juicy and drinkable, the dryness really brings out the citrus flavors. I've brewed this 3 or 4 times and always use a Kveik yeast ( either Aurora from Bootleg Biology or Voss from Omega).
This is a regular on tap for me now
