Siesta Session IPA | Home Brewing Co.






21A American IPA







A nap in San Diego weather calls for a refreshing citrus forward Session IPA. “Session” means less than 5% ABV. Though it may be tiny, it sure is might with juicy papaya tropical notes and light citrus such as orange peel, tangerine and pomelo. All held together with a structured pine, our recipe finishes with minimal bitterness and a crisp dry finish.

All Grain Option

Sub out 5 lbs Golden Light DME and 1 lb Bavarian Wheat DME for 9 lb 2 Row (aka Pale Malt), and 1 lb White Wheat Malt. Keep all other steeping grains/sugars in the recipe as is. Mash at 152F for 30-60 minutes.


All Grain Mash Instructions: 

Mash with a water to grain ratio of about 1.25qt per pound at a target Mash rest temp of 152 for 30-60 minutes (stirring your mash occasionally can help with your efficiency). Sparge with enough water to collect about 6.5 gallons into your kettle.


Useful All-Grain Equations 

Mash Water Volume: 1.25-1.50 qt of water per lb of grain (adjust based on equipment)

Mash Strike Water Temp: 10-12 degrees fahrenheit above your target mash temp.

Sparge Water: 1 to 1.25 x your mash water volume (calculated above). 

Results vary. Every brewhouse is unique. Take notes, and adjust. You got this!
