Mai Tai PA Clone - Flamingos & Fronds Mosaic® IPA (Extract)

Mai Tai PA Clone - Flamingos & Fronds Mosaic® IPA (Extract)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Throw on a pair of shades and button up your favorite floral print shirt, this ambrosial IPA is a vacation in a glass. Our Flamingos & Fronds IPA clone kit was inspired by Alvarado Street Brewery's Mai Tai PA, an extraordinarily tropical brew comprised of 100% Mosaic® hop additions. While technically a SMaSH beer (or in this case, single malt extract and single hop), this delicious west coast IPA has a surprisingly complex flavor and aroma profile that perfectly expresses the versatility of Mosaic® hops. Take a deep breath and let waves of passion fruit, mango, and lychee wash over you while sipping a pint of Flamingos & Fronds. Close your eyes and you'll hear the wind lightly rustling through the palms as a flock of wading birds quietly gabble and honk in the distance. Relax. You've earned a break from life's unrelenting hustle and bustle, if only for as long as there's beer left in your glass.

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

My recipe kit for extract flamingos and fronds came with no grains. Is this normal? I never made a beer with no grains?
Matt Daniels on Dec 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It is exactly correct that this kit comes with no grains. The malt extract makes up all of the fermentable sugar and flavor profile that the recipe calls for. Using extra grains is optional and most done for imparting color and flavors of toast, roast, and caramel.
