What do you think? How did i do turning that email into a recipe? Feedback would be appreciated on turning the email into a recipe, not improving on the recipe in the email. Thanks so much.

Your conversion looks good. That 18% seems like a lot of caramel/crystal malts for an IPA. That will give the beer a lot of body and it may be overly sweet. If you want to stick with that recipe then I would mash at a lower temp to help thin it out. Maybe 149F - 150F for 90 minutes. I'd also add another oz to the dry hopping.

Looks pretty good from the info they gave.

+1 on adding another ounce for the dryhop. Maybe a flame out too?

+1 on dry hopping, at least 2 oz. Also, for flavor strike, the big flavor addition is the 15 min, so maybe up that some, or the 15 and 10.

Why not list the 2row as 11 lbs? You using pale malt and pale ale malt?

That was a mistake, one listing is supposed to be british 2 row per another email from founders. Thanks for the help.

They say "enormous " for the dry hop, so I don't think 2 oz is really enough. After a lot of research here on hoppy IPAs, I've gone to 3 oz for all mine. Also convinced some friends who brew based on samples of our similar brews. Besides, if 3 is too much at first, don't worry because it will fade within a month.

Does anyone have an extract version of this recipe? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, any info on the fermentation schedule as far as how long primary and secondary should be, dry hopping, etc.?
