Hot as Helles at Perennial!

A few weeks ago I was by Jim Leabig asked to brew my Hot as Helles recipe as a pilot batch at Perennial Artisan Ales here in town.  This is a Chipotle Munich Helles that took best of show at this year’s Champion of the Pint competition, held by Garage Brewer’s Society.

We brewed 20 gallons on Jim’s Top Tier system and all went well.  We had a higher efficiency than expected but compensated by adding water during the boil.  Hit right at 1.048, which was the original target.

Hopefully the beer will be ready in a few months.  I’ll post more when we’re ready to add the chipotle infusion.
