Black Rock Crafted Riwaka Pale Ale is special because of the large amounts of ale malt, Caramalt and Roasted specialty malts used to brew it, providing a delicious pale ale flavour and pale brown colour. NZ Green Bullet and Pacific Gem hops are added at the boil to provide a moderate-strong bitterness.
Black Rock Crafted Riwaka Pale Ale is already dry-hopped with Riwaka hops - one of the popular varieties from New Zealand Hops for the unique citrus aromas it infuses into the beer - which has made it highly demanded by brewers around the world. Brew with Black Rock Ultra-Light malt extract, or combine 2 cans of RPA for a more powerful hop aroma and bitterness. You could also try brewing this recipe with a specialty US ale yeast like Safale US-05.
The master brewers at Black Rock have expertly brewed the highest quality fresh wort in a state-of-the-art Krones brewery, using only the finest fresh NZ malt before gently evaporating to 80 brix for your convenience.
