IBU: 27 SRM: 6 ABV: 4.5% (approx. using 1kg Black Rock Liquid Brewing Sugar) Malt: 74% Ale, 13.6% Lager, 12% Caramalt, 0.4% Roasted malt Hops, bittering: Green Bullet, Pacific Gem
Black Rock Golden Ale is brewed with Ale and Lager malts with Caramalt and Roasted specialty malts for a rich golden colour. NZ Green Bullet and Pacific Gem hops are added at the boil to provide a moderate-strong bitterness. Brew with 1kg Black Rock Liquid Brewing Sugar (or 1kg other sugar) for a crisper finish. For more body, colour and malt flavour use 1.7kg Black Rock Ultralight or Light unhopped malt extract instead of sugar.
Costly, time-consuming all grain processes are not necessary to create quality craft wort at home. Discerning home brewers are always looking to improve their brewing techniques and beer quality. With this in mind, the master brewers at Black Rock have expertly brewed the highest quality fresh wort in a state-of-the-art Krones brewery, using only the finest fresh NZ malt before gently evaporating to 80 brix for your convenience. Try brewing this recipe with a specialty US ale yeast like Safale US-05.
