1 Pkgs Rogue Pacman (Wyeast Labs #1764) Yeast-Ale
I'll be pitching on top of a yeast cake of Pacman.
I haven't made a beer above 50ish IBUs before, but I'd like to try. Any thoughts?
Sounds good. I'd personally shoot for 70-80 IBUs with a 1.075 beer. I just brewed Dude's Lakewalk pale ale, and that is an awesome hop combo. Good luck!
If you're gonna use 1/2# honey malt I would cut the crystal in half unless you like your IPA's on the sweeter/maltier side...
Was hoping to get some of that sweetness to balance the hops, but I'm not looking for anything overly cloying, either.
Just thinking out loud, I have some odds and ends crystal malt that I should use up on a paler beer. How about this grain bill:
14 lb Golden Promise
.5 lb Flaked Barley
.5 lb Honey Malt
.5 lb Crystal 20L
.25 lb Crystal 60L
Could also scratch the 60L entirely and just go with the 20L. I wonder if that is enough with the honey and flaked barley to stand up to the IBUs. I'm shooting for a paler color with this beer.
Shameless bump! :D
.25# of C60 is just going to add color. i wouldn't bother unless you're into that sort of stuff.
Late additions are great for this hop combo. I recently scored a 44/50 on my amarillo/simcoe IPA at a BJCP sanctioned event. I used MO but GP is a great choice too.
