For this new series, it was great to be able to pull together two of the British Isle's up and coming breweries; Whiplash and Burnt Mill. The latter has brewed one of our favourite new beers of the past six months with their gluten free oat pale 'Steel Cut' and we were keen to see what we could do with the style once given the super-hopped approach of ourselves and Whiplash. 1.5 ton of oat malt was hand-loaded into the mash tun to avoid the barley dust in the conveyer - good job there were six of us around to help! We added an extra dimension with flaked maize and sorghum, maltdrextrin for body and then went heavy in the whirlpool to try and layer in as much depth of flavour as possible. We dry hopped with all of the classic tropical fruit varieties too to make sure this brew really sings!
