This recipe is our extract take on the popular Single Fin Summer Ale by Gage Road Brewers.
This very sessionable ale is light bodied and has a big tropical hit from large additions of Galaxy and Enigma Hops late in the boil, steeped and dry hopped. This beer is easy drinking at circa. 4.5% with a low level of bitterness.
This recipe is in the style of Gage Brewers Single Fin Summer Ale and might not be an exact clone, but if you like the commercial offering then you will be sure to love this brew.
This recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops, wet malts and steeping grains for the beginner or intermediate brewer who wants to take their tin kit brewing to the next level.
