So I didnt make this for brewfest since I made my Badfish IIPA instead. So after changing the name to Ben Jammin IPA and making some adjustments I brewed this up today and it smells good. Heres what I went with...
Batch size - 6gal
OG - 1.065-1.069
IBU - 45
Yeast - US05
Mash temp - 152
Ferm temp/time - 65 for 17 days primary 3-4 days secondary
1# Crystal 60
Irish Moss @ 15 min
1 oz Simcoe @ 15min
1 oz Cascade @ 15min
1/2 tsp fresh ground peppercorn blend @ 12 min
1 oz Fresh grated ginger root @ 12min
1 oz Cascade @ 10min
1 oz Amarillo @ 10min
2 oz Amarillo @ 5min
*Added the zest of 2 blood oranges and the fruit of 3 into primary when transferring wort from boil kettle. After 17 days in primary Im going to rack to secondary and age for 3-4 days on spanish cedar.
As a ginger I take offense! Also, I'll take a pint!;)
Good idea! My brother in law used to give me crap for being ginger, and now his son has red hair (my sister and him both have brown). Good luck with the brew, let me know how it turns out.
Racking on to the spanish cedar chips now and it smells really good. Im looking forward to gettin this bottled in a week, I cant wait to drink it!!
Should be ready to bottle in about 4 or 5 days so I figured I'd update the thread with a pic. You could definitely smell the blood orange when I was transferring onto the spanish cedar. So far so good.
