Anybody got a recipe for Manx Pale Ale?

Post by CestrIan » Sun Jun 16, 2019 11:44 am

My mate has just come back from the TT raving about MPA. I think it's got Galaxy in. Is it impossible to get Galaxy hops? Somebody must be selling them somewhere!

Anybody got a decent stab at the recipe?

Back in my youth on IOM holidays I enjoyed the odd pint of Castletown bitter, i see its brewed by Okells now.
At the TT Shuttleworth Snap IPA and Piston Brew by Bushy's go down well too :-)

Anyone tried to clone any of these ?

Okells tell you most of what you need to know : http://www.okells.co.uk/our-beers/perma ... x-pale-ale
"3.6% ABV
Ingredients

Pale Ale Malt 1) Goldings Galaxy 2) Galaxy 3) Citra "

So just 1.038 with pale malt, bitter with Hereford Goldings, then throw Galaxy and Citra at it.

Galaxy is perhaps the most fashionable hop at the moment, supplies are limited - it's usually not too bad when the new harvest arrives in the UK summer but availablity thins out by this time of year.

Greene King and Guinness have most of it apparently. Someone in the know tells me what’s available to micro and home brewers is around 3% of the crop.
Hereford Goldings = Goldings btw, we’re not big enough for climate to matter! Haha.

I managed to get some Galaxy off the malt miller last month, when this years harvest finally hit the homebrew market. So I've got the hops for this.

I read all that that on the website "Pale Ale Malt 1) Goldings Galaxy 2) Galaxy 3) Citra". God knows what Goldings Galaxy is - that must be a typo!!
So a simple pale ale 1038 finished with Galaxy & Citra. Easy!

The reason for my post was, never having tried MPA, I wondered if anyone had tried a go at a clone. I don't know how bitter it is or how heavy the late hops are with citra and galaxy or what ratio of the two. Don't want to cock it up, because these hops are hard to come by.

Untappd says it's 44IBU, and some of the reviews mention it being "dry".

It's obviously Goldings and Galaxy - since Galaxy are so expensive you wouldn't normally bitter with them, I suspect they're cutting costs by bittering with the dry hops from the previous brew. Galaxy are pretty potent, so 2:1 Citra:Galaxy is probably a good place to start, and probably 40:60 between a 70C whirlpool and dry hopping. I've not looked too closely at the reviews to see what hints they give about how much hopping, but I'd suggest not too crazy in the first instance - maybe 7g/l of the Citra/Galaxy blend? I'd assume it's going for a fairly typical Northern New World pale along the lines of Track Sonoma etc.

Oh yes we are - well, climate and soil and all that other terroir-y stuff. EKG are definitely different to Hereford Goldings, but if you only see "Goldings" in a recipe then you can assume it's Hereford and not EKG because if people are using the more expensive EKG then they always tell you!!! Not many people realise that EKG is a protected designation, like Champagne or Parma ham - they can only come from east of the M20.

I'd imagine there's a bit of dry hopping in there as well.
