Ha I messed up my numbers in beersmith and over-sparged with too much water... ending up with an OG of 1.068... color looks great and its fermenting happily away...

Might not be so bad if this ends up having close to the same flavor but alcohol dialed down a bit... then I'll be able to drink more of it

Thanks for the recipe!


I did not have all the ingredients but did what I could. After 4 week fermentation, 3 weeks bottle conditioning, 1 week in fridge, did a side by side tasting with the commercial example. Liked mine better for everything except head which was just not really there for mine. A significant change is that I used US05 and so got a clean fermentation that let the hops and malts take center stage. TBH the FW had a more complex flavor profile but there was a troubling off flavor that dominated the profile when I tried to think about the taste. I'm not trained but was thinking it might be oxidation.

Anyway here is what I did:
#14 2 row
#1.5 rye malt
8oz flaked rye
12oz Briess Blackprinz malt
#1.5 table sugar

Mashed at 145 60 min, then 155 30 min

0.6 oz warrior 60 min
1oz citra 20 min
1oz Amarillo 20 min
1oz citra flame out
1oz Amarillo flameout
1oz citra DH
1oz Amarillo DH

US 05 harvested from a previous batch
Fermented at 64F 30 days

Dry hops were pitches in primary 4 days before bottling

OG 1.081
FG 1.014


I will say When I first poured, the hop aroma in the FW was more pronounced than my version. That didn't last long though and my version ended up brighter in aroma and hop flavor as the glasses were tasted over the course of 30 min.

I just poured my first glass and damn this beer is good. Spot on to the original plus the hop aroma and flavor are even better. This beer kicks a$$.

Howdy Folks,

I do not have access to Wookey Jack, but I am very intrigued by the recipe. I have an upcoming competition that is calling for a Rye IPA; however, I wanted to bring something that would stand out and this recipe looks like it fits the bill.

My question...how does the rye flavor come across in the finished product? Is it overwhelmed/muted by the hops or easy to pick out?

Thanks for your help.

The rye is pretty far back as flavor goes. Compared to other rye IPAs you may get judges wondering if it is really in there...

it is very subtle and IMO the hops take the beer over. But its an absolute amazing combination of flavor.

Check this out and see how close you are:

I tried it at a west coast vs east IPA competition last fall and its been in my fridge ever since. I highly suggest that you try this beer

There's a craft bar close to my house, and they had a Firestone tap takeover the other day. Lucky me, I showed up not knowing. I got so excited when I saw the sign.
