Recipe Check

Post by HopMonster » Sun Jun 25, 2017 3:37 pm

I am in the mood for something sticky for vacation and thought I might go with a slightly citrusy DIPA. I want to keep the malts as interesting as a door frame (but very dry with the blend), but need to balance the hops a bit. This should come in around 8%. I think it might be close to a decade since the last DIPA, but I have made plenty of bigger IPAs. This is just a chart tipper in the hop department made easy because I have almost all the ingredients on hand. Comments are desired.

Eponymous DIPA

36.7% | 6# US 2 Row
24.6% | 4# Pilsner
30.8% | 5# Marris Otter
4.6% | 0.75# Dextros (add @ 90 minute mark/flame off)
3.1% | 0.5#Crystal (or Carastan/MunichII)

0.25 Oz Amarillo FWH (@0 Minutes)
10 cc Hop Shot (@ 30 Minutes)
1.00 Oz Columbus (@45 Minutes)
2.00 Oz Centennial (Hop stand)
2.00 Oz Citra (Hop stand)

US West Coast Ale Yeast (1056/0001/05)

8 days before packaging dry hop

1.5 Oz Columbus
1.0 Oz Centennial
1.0 Oz Citra

4 days before packaging dry hop

0.5 Oz Columbus
0.25 Oz Centennial
0.5 Oz Citra
0.25 Oz Amarillo

1.077 OG Target

brew day went well, but lots of evaporation. My OG was 23B, which needed to be backed down, way down (17 something Brix)

I rolled it down to 1.080, and it fermented out to 1.010. That's over 9%. I shared the last 2 at a HBC meeting last week, and it was fine. 10 months later. There was no aroma left, just some residual bitter notes, but it still drank great. Brilliant and dry.
