Brett IPA with Phantasm
Brendan and Frank (Twin Elephant) hypothesized that using Brettanomyces for the primary yeast strain in an IPA would release the thiol (tropical, fruity) compounds from the phantasm. We added the phantasm powder into the fermenter during the first 24 hours of fermentation to retain as much of those flavor compounds as possible. We believe the Brett had an increased ester production that created different layers of flavor and aroma. Even if you don't like Brett, we highly recommend trying this beer.
