Kernel Panic: Chinook + Citra
"Cold" India Pale Ale
Kernel Panic is a “Cold” IPA. It’s a style that seems to have taken the Portland area by storm, so we decided we should join in on the fun. The idea is to take advantage of the bio transformation potential of lager yeast combined with a cooler fermentation, which in theory at least, should leave more thiols and other hoppy goodness more intact. For our rendition, we blended a couple of our favorite Pilsner malts together, added a generous portion of flaked maize, fermented with lager yeast and hopped with Chinook & Citra hops.
