Kinda sorta, but not really, inspired by a 100% Drie IPA that Mike T/Old Sock/The Mad Fermentationist recently brewed.

10 lbs Belgian Pils
4 lbs Oats

Single infusion mash at 154F for 1 hour

1 oz. Magnum at first boil of a 1 hour boil

8 oz. Legacy at 180F

Cool and pitch 32 oz. starter of Brett Drie culture

Ferment for 4 weeks

Two 1 week dry hop sessions with 3 oz. Calypso

Just bottled this beer yesterday and it came in at 1.006 from an estimated 1.068, so about 8.1%. The Brett Drie really worked well with the aromatics of the Calypso. Doesn’t punch you in the face with hoppiness, but its fruitiness has a certain complexity to it that is juxtaposed well with the herbal nature of the Legacy. FWIW, it was a much better idea to split the Legacy and Calypso into different additions rather than to use them together like I had done with a previous IPA. Seemed a LOT more focused that way. Anxious to see how this one tastes once carbonated and then again with some age on it.

This sounds good. I’ve been tempted to do something similar myself with an all Brett all citra ipa.

I did a 100% Brett C IPA with Amarillo and Citra a while back that kicked all types of ass. I think you’ll be happy with the results that you get with just Citra.

Where did you get your culture from? We’ve been playing around with the Drie from BSI and had some very interesting results.

Not a pure culture. Just cultured dreggs from a Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Yellow.
