Treated myself to some different hops and speciality malts and one of the hops was Kohatu, I wanted to try something a bit different so I went with a basic pale malt with Chinook for bittering and Kohatu for flavour / aroma


This was my first attempt at creating my own All Grain recipe so I wasn’t sure what the hop / malt balance would be like so took a sneak taste from the secondary to see if I needed to dry hop.



Here is the Beersmith recipe
