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.

The last of the warm bohemians
This smooth, crisp pilsner has a rich gold colour, prevalent hops and a clean malty finish. and despite its name, we recommend you enjoy it chilled (although our recommendations are generally not recommended).
Van full of weirdos - cryo simcoe ipa
This single-hop-forward ipa packs a huge citrus punch while remaining magically smooth. it's our first ipa using the newly developed cryo hop powder, a concentrated lupulin of wholeleaf hops containing resins and aromatic oils. it's designed to provide intense hop flavour and aroma without any of the astringent flavours or vegetative material. we think you're gonna really like it. 5.8% alc./vol.473 ml
Sarnia light
A bright, incredibly easy drinking ale that uses the unique kveik yeast strain to produce an easy drinking yet full flavoured ale. a simple malt bill, along with some oats, gives this beer a soft and elegant mouthfeel. a slight dry hop finishes off this beer and gives way to a bright and sessionable beer.
Mid-life spices
This traditional extra-strong english brew suffers from a bit of a split personality: part honey mead, part barley ale. with the addition of a boatload of spices with strange names like grains of paradise, cardamom, and long pepper. a bottle of this one is known to cure the symptoms of any mid-life crisis; including impulse mazda purchases and impromptu trips to vegas "just because."
