Here is how MashTag Works:

Every day this week we will post a blog at 12 noon offering you 3 options for various elements of the brew. You cast your votes on twitter, on facebook or on our blog.

Monday - Beer Style - decided as Brown Ale.

Tuesday - Malt Bill & ABV - decided as American Brown Ale at 7.5% ABV

Wednesday - Hops & IBU - decided as New Zealand Hops and 95 IBU

Thursday - Special Twist

Friday - Name

Dry Hopped

Not just dry hopped. Crazy, borderline institutionally insane dry hopped. Here we will do what we do best. Fire up the hop cannon, locked and loaded with loads of awesome hops and dry hop this beer to hell, South Dakota, New Delhi and back. We would make this our most dry hopped beer ever and fire a ridiculous amount of hops into this American Brown Ale resulting in a riot of hop flavour and hop aroma on this beer. Extreme hop heads need only apply.

Hazelnuts and Oak Chips

This option would see us look to capitalize on the great malty flavours inherent in the American Brown Ale we will brew. The hazelnuts which will be added at the end of the boil and after fermentation will draw out the nuttiness of the speciality malts we are using. I have heard on the grapevine craft beer loving squirrels are already excited about this. The oak chips will be added to the beer post fermentation to infuse a toasty, encapsulating complexity made up of vanilla, marshmallows and honey.

Hefeweizen Yeast

This option would see us ditch the conventional American ale yeast normally used in the style and instead ferment it with hefeweizen yeast typically used in German wheat beers. This fermentation will infuse an assertive banana, clove and estery character into the beer and even notes of bubble-gum. Sweeter, rounder, softer with a fluffier mouth-feel. At least until the hops kick in that is. This yeast should also accentuate the spiciness of the hops. georgehefe_620Remember votes close at 1800 GMT today, let us know what you want the twist to be and tomorrow we will announce the winner and give you options for the twist.

Happy voting scamps!

    Not because I'm crazy about either (in this context at least, hazelnuts I'm crazy about in general) (both are a bit overused, hazelnuts especially in this [brown ale] context), but it's the best option out of these three.
