I had three floyds Apocalypse Cow tonight, it was the first beer that really felt new and unique to me in quite some time. A simple idea that I haven't seen done anywhere else in the past. I'm looking for recipe ideas on this if anyone has had it.
Here is the description from three floyds.
11.0% ABV 100 IBUs
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, not normal. Cheers! June release.
Here is what I was thinking off the top my head.
6 gallon batch
19lbs 2 Row Pale
2 lbs Cara-Pils
1lb Caramel 40
2lbs Milk Sugar
2 oz of Columbus 90min
1 oz mixture of Citra and Amarillo 15min
1 oz mixture of Citra and Amarillo 10
1 oz mixture of Citra and Amarillo 5
1 oz mixture of Citra and Amarillo flameout
3 oz mixture of Citra and Amarillo Dry Hop
No idea on the yeast, the beer didn't have to much in the way of Yeast Esters, so just something that will finish low and handle a beer this big, I wish I had another bottle to take a gravity reading from.
