Source:  Vermont brewery famous for creating the New England IPA style.

🏆 Classic New England helped win the Silver medal in Juicy or Hazy Imperial IPA (GABF 2021) for BKS Artisan Ales 🏆

🏆 Classic New England helped win the Gold medal in Hazy IPA (NHC 2023) for Jon Dieter 🏆

Famously referred to as “Conan” by brewers, this yeast helped launch an entirely new type of IPA. Classic New England creates distinctive peach and tropical notes along with a touch of malt nuttiness. Good luck getting this haze bomb to drop clear!

    Too start things off, the only word I can think of is fantastic. Made this into a Triple Dry Hopped Vanilla Milkshake NE IPA. Basically went all out.

    Recipe, 3 Gallon batch
    70.59% 2 Row
    23.53% Flaked Oats
    5.88% Lactose Powder
    OG 1.060
    FG 1.020
    ABV 5.25%
    I used HBC-586, Dr Rudi and Medusa hops all from YVH starting the hop additions at 15 mins and then triple dry hopping through fermentation. Temp was kept between 68-72 degrees throughout duration of fermentation. Allowed to ferment for 14 days before bottling, has been carbonating for 7 days. Just opened first bottle and wow. This is a great beer, fermented very clean allowing the hop esters to shine. Has a great haze to it, and fermented fairly quickly for being low flocculation. Great yeast, 10/10 would buy again. Only complaint is maybe more cells, 50ml pack is small not giving a crazy amount of yeast cells. No yeast starter made, don’t have the stir plate and flask.

    I did a 3 gallon small batch with this yeast. Mashed in at 150°.
    77% – 2-Row
    15% – Flaked Wheat
    8% – Cane Sugar
    Hops- 1oz each of Galaxy. Mosaic. Citra. At yeast pitch.

    Pitched yeast at 67° and let sit at around 70° for 48hrs.
    Dry hopped with 2oz each of Galaxy. Mosaic. Citra. Elevated to 72° and let sit for 3 days.

    Final gravity at 1.010.
    Kegged on day 6. Force carbed for 24hrs. Then let sit for two days.
    It’s a hop bomb with great flavor and huge aroma.
    As I have experienced with a Conan in past, it did drop a bit more clear than I want. Still some haze but not thick.
    If you are going for a thick hazy hop bomb, this isn’t it. However, it gives great flavors and big aroma.
