Hypothesis #1 and #2 - lo-cal ipa

By Refined Fool Brewing Co.

Pull your pipettes out of the crawl space, we need your help with a science experiment.
abstract: hypothesis #1 and #2 are our first attempts at a lo-cal ipa. the goal is to balance the citrusy, refreshing goodness of an ipa with the benefits of a low calorie beer.
observations: we observed that the beer got brewed and packaged.
materials and methods: water, malt, hops, yeast, goggles, a lab coat, passion, a documentary about tibetan yaks.
hypothesis #1calories/12 oz - 123abv - 3.61%srm - 6.8ibu - 25og - 9.43fg - 2.54
hypothesis #2calories/12 oz - 99abv - 4.34%srm - 5.8ibu - 22og - 8fg - 0
abv: alcohol by volume, a standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in a given volume of a beverage (expressed as a volume percent).
srm: standard reference method, the system brewers use to measure a beer’s color. a very pale beer, such as american wheat, typically has an srm of 5, while a dark coloured stout is usually in the range of 25-40 srm.
ibu: international bittering units, the measure of hops’ contribution to a beer's bitterness. it can range from zero to over 100. beer bitterness is subject to perception. what is aggressively bitter to some is mildly bitter to others. also, bitterness can seem lower in the presence of residual sugar, carbonation and cooler temperatures.
og: original gravity, the measure of how much sugar is present in the wort before it is fermented.
fg: final gravity, the measure of how much sugar is left over when fermentation is done.

Treat - coffee crisp ale
Remember when you hit grade 9 and people said you were too old for door to door candy acquisition? it sucked. and it still sucks. out of pure spite we created treat, the adult version of a full candy bar in your pillow case. this silky smooth coffee crisp ale was brewed with 50 pounds of actual chocolate bars. victory, biscuit, caramel, and chocolate malts help to create a distinct wafer/toffee backbone. so go ahead and let your kids fill up on tiny bags of no name regular chips and rock hard hubba bubba—you'll be fine.
This bright, pleasantly tart ale was soured with lactobacillus and infused with pumpkin pie spices. biscuit, caramel, and amber malts provide the unique colour and flavour backbone of this autumn treat. it's a shout out to one of our favourite michigan breweries, jolly pumpkin, who makes some of the best sours on the planet. it's also a shout out to our 3rd favourite type of gourd, the pumpkin (just behind snake gourd and hercules war club.)
Brewed with norwegian hornindal kveik yeast. for best results, serve vertical.

This hazy, complex beast combines the tartness of a kettle sour with the juiciness of an east coast ipa.
