Yup, an all EKG brew is perfect for an English IPA. It's aroma is often what makes the most noticeable distinction between IPA and a pint of special bitter.

Mr. B, explain how you steep the hops. Add at flameout, let sit for 20 min, add more, let sit 10 min, then rack?

Thanks mrbowenz and Yooper!
Has anyone brewed Edworts Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale with EKG instead of Cascade ?
The cascade version is excellent.

Will it work with EKG ?
BTW - what is torrified wheat ?

I haven't tried that. I'm not a style nazi (well, maybe I am ................) but I like British malts with British hops, for a more authentic English IPA.

Torrified wheat is an unmodified wheat that has been "popped" to open the kernels. Like popcorn, but with wheat. If you can't find it, you could probably use wheat malt, or flaked wheat.

If only i had seen yooper's EGK EIPA sooner...

i brewed an english IPA on saturday and followed Jamil's recipe for it, with one modification.

12.25 lbs english pale malt
8 oz wheat malt
8 oz biscuit
8 oz caramel 40L
6 oz caramel 120L

1.25 oz galena (10.1 aa) 60 min
1.80 oz fuggles (4.6 aa) 10 min
1.80 oz EKG (4.4 aa) 0 min

the original recipe called for challenger for the 60 min addition, but i had galena on hand and went with it as my bittering. Listen to the Jamil show's English IPA episode for more info on it if you want.

Yooper - is there any reason you don't dry hop your one ?
Would it be too much if I dry hopped with 1oz EKG for 10 days ?
