Can any of you fellas help me convert this into a 5 gallon extract recipe? Or possibly point me in the direction of resources that can teach me to convert it myself? This IPA sounds interesting...
Also, it is worth noting that this recipe calls for a 90 minute mash in addition to a 120 minute boil. And what the heck is "Invert No 3"?
Any help would be awesome!!!!!
I suspect Invert No 3 is a particular color of inverted sugar syrup. Think Lysle's. These "IPAs" are sort of an ordinary bitter with some extra hop presence and can be quite good.
This would be a pretty simple AG brew and as the recipe calls for flaked maize it would be the best way to try and reproduce it IMO. However, if you want to go extract here is a quick recipe which should get you close to those listed numbers.
4 lbs Light DME
.75 lbs British 55L crystal
1 lb sugar
1 oz Cluster @ 60-90 min
1 oz Fuggles @ 15 min
1 oz Goldings @ 5 min-knockout
London Ale yeast (Wyeast 1028 or White Lab 013) would be my suggestion although a dried English like 04 would be good too.
