Homebrew Summer: Orderville

Modern Times Beer maintains its open-source philosophy, sharing homebrew-scaled recipe for its flagship IPA

In addition to pairing local breweries and homebrewers to produce pro-am beers as part of our 2024 Homebrew Summer program, we’ve rounded up homebrew-scaled recipes for some notable San Diego commercial beers. The first of those we’re sharing comes from Modern Times Beer. They’ve seen fit to provide the how-to notes on their flagship IPA, Orderville, so amateur brewers can produce it from the comfort of home. Read on for some helpful notes from the Point Loma brewery, then download a PDF of the recipe.

New beer recipes will debut weekly throughout the summer, so be sure to check back with San Diego Beer News on a regular basis (or subscribe to our free weekly email newsletter and we’ll send all the recipes straight to your inbox). Cheers and happy homebrewing!

Why did you choose to share this recipe and do you have any tips for homebrewers?
Modern Times has always had a special connection with homebrewers. Michael Tonsmeire, the talented man behind the home brewing blog The Mad Fermentationist, helped build many of our recipes early on, some of which remain essentially unchanged. Ever since the company’s creation, we have been open-source when it comes to our recipes and processes. Orderville seemed like a great choice, as it’s our flagship IPA. Despite being a powerhouse of hops, it’s actually a pretty approachable beer to brew. It’s basically a ton of Mosaic hops, with some Simcoe giving off those classic pine and orange notes we all love. That magical Mosaic fruit and berry notes should shine through, and even if you don’t hit your brew targets on the dot it’ll probably end up tasting really good. Relax and have fun with it! If you can’t find Ekuanot, just go even harder on the Mosaic. Happy brewing!
