A MOUNTAIN WEST HOME BREWERY
Third Leap Brewing & Blending creates beer inspired by the Mountain West, USA.
After optimizing a system of linear equations in an attempt to reverse engineer Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) TRI-2304CR cryo hops blend, I use the same process to find “cheaper” hop blends that would resemble two popular “cheater” hops (Citra and Mosaic) in oil, acid and “survivables” compounds data from YCH.
The Black is Beautiful initiative is a beer collaboration aimed to raise awareness to the injustices against people of color. The initiative was spearheaded by Weathered Souls Brewing Co on June 1 following of the killing of George Floyd and the systemic racism that continues to plague the U.S.
After transcribing the data presented in Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) “Survivables” Chart, I dusted off my algebra skills to find which combination(s) of hops is similar to YCH’s TRI-2304CR cryo hops blend.
