Description

If you're blue, and you don't know where to go to, why don't you go where dry beer sits? Puttin' on the Spritz!

There's a new style on the scene that has everyone tapping their toes, and we're excited to bring you a beer from the man that started the tune. In our latest addition to the BrewMaster Series lineup we have one of the original Brut IPA's - Puttin' on the Spritz! This hybrid IPA is the brainchild of Kim Sturdavant of Social Kitchen & Brewery in San Francisco, California. We first met Kim on our journey to brew with and understand the amyglucosidase enzyme (the signature ingredient responsible for a Brut's dry character). Kim, being the stand-up fella that he is, was kind enough to not only share his knowledge of the AMG enzyme, but also the very recipe that shook up the brew scene and inspired countless iterations of the style.

Despite its dry character, Puttin' on the Spritz is sneaky drinkable with a thirst-quenching profile. El Dorado and Mosaic hops impart tart citrus and tropical fruit notes, while a grain bill primarily featuring pilsner malt and flaked corn makes for an ultra-clean finish with almost no caramel or overt malty flavors. Crisp, dry, clean, crushable.

Curious about Brut IPA's? Check out There and Back Again, A Brut IPA Tale! In this article, our own Vito Delucchi takes us along on his quest to unlock the mysteries of the amyloglucosidase enzyme and discover the best methods for brewing Brut IPA's.  Also be sure to check out Kim's Brut IPA website where he discusses the philosophies, techniques, and history of this emerging style.

Great beer, this is my second purchase of this kit!
Richard D on Apr 10, 2019
Easy to purchase kit that has been vetted for my first Brut IPA. Then I will look to develop my own recipe with time.

I am thinking of purchasing the all grain version. At what point do you add the Ultra Firm?
Theron Volkman on Jan 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: When pitching.
How does an OG of 1.048 produce an ABV of nearly 7%?
Bill Snowden on Mar 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You need to get your FG close to 1.000. If you follow the direction with the kit and add the Alpha Amylase during mash-in and the Ultra Ferm directly to the fermenter along with your yeast you should come close. A OG of 1.048 and a FG of 1.000 results in an ABV% of 6.3%. If you can get your efficiencies up a bit you can achieve a higher OG. I brew with a GrainFather RIMS system and my efficiencies are normally in the mid to high 80 percentile. My Brut brew produced a OG of 1.064 and a FG of 0.998. Adjusted for a temperature of 67.5 F (add.002) it came out to a FG of exactly 1.000.
This is my first brew with this kit. Is this Brut supposed to be hazy? Mine is cold crashing now and it looks very hazy.
Richard Dimock on Mar 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will be a little hazy, I have brewed two of them and both have been a little hazy. They both tasted great, and both are full grain brews. I will be brewing a third one soon...

Better than commercial examples.
Used California ale yeast. Huge candy and citrus hop aroma from the El Dorado hops on the nose, hint of sweetness with an effervescent quality in the mouthfeel, and when you swallow, nothing. No lingering tastes, just gone. Dry as a bone.

Make sure to do a few days at 70 when fermentation is done to eliminate diacytyl.

Fantastic beer! I'll be brewing it again and again!
AWESOME BEER! I've tried the Sierra Nevada and the New Belgium Brut IPAs and I loved them! I bought this kit in hopes that it would be good, it's not, it's GREAT!! It's better than both of the commercial ones I tried. This will be in the year round rotation for me in both the indoor and pool side kegerators!
