Modified Nugget Nectar recipe from BYO and Brewing network interview. Andrew Dickson said that the malt bill was mainly vienna malt. The BYO recipe was off for OG significantly. I dropped the pilsner malt, added in Vienna to raise the OG and added caramel 60L to match the stated target parameters. Hop bill was used as stated. Best IPA I have Ever made. better than two hearted... And that's saying a lot!

Malty with a great hop punch thanks mainly to the big and sticky CTZ and Simcoe. The Nugget hop is definitely the star of the show though. Now one of my new favorite hops. Brew this beer! You won't be disappointed.

Great recipe

I made this beer for my pops who is a fan of IPA's. I tried it to make sure the carbonation was good and man! I actually enjoyed drinking this beer!! Well done!!

Came out great!

by Dwarren

Great recipe, and I cant stop drinking it. The grain bill pushed the limits of the mash tun but it fit! Delish!!

Super good, I am also one that tends to gravitate towards lower IBU beers but figured I'd make this one to appease some friends and family who wanted an IPA. I like Nugget Nectar so I figured I'd try this recipe and was not disappointed.

The worst part of the whole thing is that I already gave away half of my supply before I tried it. I've been brewing for about a year now and it's my favorite brew to date.
