Omega Tropical IPA. Ferment at 75 degrees for 5 days, then let free rise to 78 degrees to finish fermentation.
Mash at 150°F (65.5°C). Using lactic acid, adjust mash to achieve 5.1–5.3 pH. Dry hop when gravity falls below 1.020, but take caution as nucleation sites may cause a geyser. Start with a few pellets, let the CO2 settle, then finish the dry hop under positive pressure. Do not remove yeast. After 7 days on hops, crash beer to 32°F (0°C) and hold for 4-5 days before racking to keg or bottling.
