Rockin Kiwi Pale Ale

Rockin Kiwi Pale Ale

23L All Grain Recipe

A nice sessionable pale ale using NZ Hop varieties that I would call very under-rated. Rakau and Wai-Iti hops arent as popular as Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin but are great NZ hops for a summer pale ale, and are truly 'banging NZ Pale Ale'

230g Gladfield Light Crystal


15g Rakau (60 min)

10g Rakau (30 min)

12g Rakau (15 min)
