#149 Zythos IPA



MoreBeer's Hopunion's Zythos IPA.  Hopunion is one of the main suppliers of hops in the Craft Brewing industry.  Zythos is a new "IPA style" hop blend created to optimize and exceed the aroma characteristics of the traditional, and sometimes hard to get, IPA hops. Hopunion had a team of professional hop sniffers blending combinations of hops. The interesting thing about blending hops is like blending wine - the blend actually ends up being different than the sum of the parts. Pretty cool.1

Nate's Recommendations on the Citrus Bomb IPA:
Use WLP001 (with a starter) or WY1056 yeast. Plan on an 18-20 day fermentation: 10 Days at 65F, then raise to 68F on the 10th. Add your dry hops 5 days later, and rack 3-5 days after that. *NOTE* Fining with biofine is recommended!
