Bonsai Dog Ale Extract Kit

  • Description
  • Q and A

Think of Bonsai Dog as a sessionable hoppy wheat beer. The specialty malts include a little carapils for body but the focus here is on citra and amarillo hops--2.5 ounces of amarillo for the dry hop!.

Citra upside your head

This batch did not last long in my household. I used S-05 yeast and fermented around 68 degrees and I was extremely pleased with the result. The late addition of Amarillo gives this a really nice aroma. It's definitely one that I'll make again. It's very drinkable given the IBUs and won't completely destroy your palate if you have one with dinner...lunch, breakfast(?).
