Hop Cholent Double IPA Brew Day (13.3oz of Hops!!!)

As promised in my last HBW video. Here’s the full brew day video for my Hop Cholent Double IPA.

Inspiration behind this beer’s name: In the shtetls (small Jewish communities) of 19th Century Europe and Israel a stew or cholent consisting of leftover uncooked meat , barley, and vegetables, was slow cooked in the town baker’s oven over Friday night, and served to the town for the Sabbath lunch meal. In my case I happened to have an over abundance of leftover 2013 harvest hops that I needed to use up before they’d begin to go cheesy on me. So after taking an inventory of which varieties I had in my over stuffed freezer, I put together this “stew of leftovers” in hopes that the resulting flavors would bring warming lupulicious excitement to my home brewery during the cold winter months in Washington Heights (NYC).

Hops: Columbus, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, and El Dorado

OG 1.080 Target FG 1.016 = 8.5% ABV, 130 IBUs

Not Shown: I tossed in 0.30oz of Amarillo while chilling the wort.
