Steel City Riot in Paradise


Steel City
Brewed at Little Ale Cart
Sheffield, England
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.7%
Cask, Special;
With no yeast available, and the decision having been taken to experiment with dried yeast anyhow, we borrowed yet another pack of Safale US-05 from our original collaborator Pete Roberts at the Brew Company (cheers, Pete... youíll get them back one day!) to ferment the wort made from Muntonís low-colour Maris Otter and a whole stack of hops which should give this brew a right old mix of flavours; peach from Simcoe, mango from Citra, coconut and pineapple from Sorachi, gooseberry from Nelson Sauvin, hefty bitterness and citrus from Galena and lean zestiness from Green Bullet are all in there somewhere! Over 3kg of hops went in at flame-off so this should be one hop-monster of a brew and weighs in at 108 IBUs, plenty to balance out the malt in a 4.6% pale ale! Just for a change, we also added a dash of Caramalt which Dean had brought along to give a touch of body (but very little colour) to the brew; we donít want to be typecast as only brewing extremely pale beers, do we? No, so this one is merely very pale in colour...!
