Ok, here is the recipe for my first attempt at a Caldera IPA type beer (one of my favourites!), it's only a partial mash, mostly relying on extract as I'm quite a novice:
1lb Honey Malt (Domestic)
1lb Munich Malt
Steeped for 30 mins at 150-158 deg
Sparged and added
7lb Local (FH Steinbarts) Light LME
1lb Briess Light DME
1oz Simcoe 14.4% @ 60 mins
1oz Centennial (unknown %) @ 60 mins
1oz Amarillo 10.6% @ 30 mins
1oz Centennial @ 30 mins
1oz Amarillo @10 mins
0.5oz Simcoe @ 5 mins
0.5oz simcoe @ 1 min
I will add 2oz of the same Simcoe for a dry hop to really smash that grapefruit/apricot aroma home!
1 x Whirlfloc tablet added at 15 mins.
Cooled in ice bath in 1 hr and dropped temp to 73F.
Hoping for around 1.016-18 FG (usual with this yeast)
Tasted the sample (to gauge bitterness) and am looking forward to the fermented flavor.
Watch for further posts to see the outcome...
