Black Rock Crafted Riwaka Pale Ale is created using our master brewer's favourite pale ale recipe. Special because of the large amounts of ale malt, Caramalt and Roasted specialty malts used to brew it, the beer delivers a delicious Pale Ale flavour and pale brown colour. NZ Green Bullet and Pacific Gem hops are added at the boil to provide a moderate-strong bitterness. Black Rock Crafted Riwaka Pale Als is already dry-hopped with Riwaka hops - one of the popular new varieties from New Zealand Hops for the unique citrus aromas it infuses into the beer - which has made it highly demanded by brewers around the world. Brew with Black Rock Ultra-Light UME, or combine 2 cans of RPA for a more powerful hop aroma and bitterness. Try brewing this recipe with a specialty US ale yeast like Safale US-05.
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.
