Northern Monk Recipe Request

Post by Binkie Huckaback » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:18 pm

Does anyone have a recipe for, or any information about Northern Monk's Bombay Dazzler? My girlfriend thinks it was a great beer, but unfortunately, it's not part of their core range. I was sure I had found something a while back, but now can't find anything.

Hi Rob. I haven't as although I know many brewers and more than happy to share, I think it's a bit cheeky. That said, I think I probably will!

They might withhold some information about it but most breweries are happy to share, the days of recipe safeguarding are mostly long gone tbh.

Otherwise it’s probably a fairly standard wit - 50-50 pale malt and torrified wheat, 15 ibu, proper wit yeast and it’s spiced with ginger, cardamom and coriander - use them dry after the ferment ideally. Cardamom is a powerful little pod so go easy! Lol

Final Gravity (FG): 1.010
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 5.2 %
Colour (SRM): 3.0 (EBC): 6.0
Bitterness (IBU): 12
Brewhouse Efficiency (%): 75

2.25 kg Lager malt
1.8 kg Wheat Malt
750 g Flaked Oats

12 IBU bittering hops @ 60 Minutes (Boil)
50 g Saaz Pellet (3.6% Alpha) @ 15 Minutes (Aroma)
15 g Cardamom Seed @ 5 Minutes (Boil)
