Craft Beer – Midsummer Ale

Trying to use the knowledge I have gained from previous beers I wanted to make something good for Midsummer.  Aiming for a pale ale with a lot of citrus and passion fruit flavored hops.

Spending Midsummer in Tärnsjö which is known for having a lot of Mosquito’s made it easy about which animal this beer was meant to be. The name ended up being “Tärnsjö törstsläcker”.

One interesting thing happened when I opened one of the bottles. It went crazy with the carbon dioxide and over half of the beer went out…


  • 13 l water
  • 100 g Caraplus 200 (whole grains, milled in mortar, in the water until 65 degrees)
  • 1  can Cooper Light Malt Extract (1.5 kg)
  • 60 min: 12g Simcoe (12.9)
  • 15 min: 20g Mosaic (12.0)
  • 5 min: 10g Mosaic+ 10g Cascade (7.9)
  • 1 pkgs  California Ale V Yeast WLP051
  • 10g Mosaic + 10g Cascade dry hopped


IBU: ~67
OG: 1.050
FG: 1.014
ABV: ~4.5%

Sorry for the late update, the beer is all out now. I really liked it, this had probably the most hops and I am now starting to turn in my taste. The next beer will not use much hops at all.
