Hey all. My first year hops are near harvest and it looks like Galena is my only substantially yielding plant. With that in mind I've been looking for recipes that use Galena and I've come across Diamond Knot IPA which sounds delicious and bitters with Galena. So I'd like to clone it for a partial mash but I've never tasted it and doubt I'll be able to get a hold of one before I brew. So....anyone who has tasted and/or cloned or just feels like heckling take a look at what I've come up with so far and please throw me some input.
6lbs pale extract-added late in boil
Mash around 152 for an hour:
1lb Crystal 20L
1oz whole Galena 60min IBUs unknown
.5oz whole Columbus 30min
1oz whole Columbus 10min
Dry hop 2oz of whole Columbus and, perhaps, however much fresh Galena I have left over, for two wks or so.
White Labs California Ale V?
On Beer Smith this nears the OG of 1.056 and 40IBUs that was given in an article I read about DK in a brewing mag. Actually BS gives my IBUs as 61 but I'm guessing my Galena won't be that bitter...who knows?
Thanks so much all. You rock. Hard.
