Default Hill Farmstead Double Galaxy

Ok, this beer absolutly blew me away when I was able to try it.
Anyone ever have it, or tried to clone it? It is one of the Single Hop series from Hill Farmstead.

For style, it says a double IPA, 8% ABV, single hopped with Galaxy.

For hints to the recipe, I looked at their other double IPA, Abner, which says it is brewed with pale malt, caramel malt, and dextrose.

Anyone have any suggestions or other hints?

3.5 gallon batch
% LB OZ °L PPG
64% 5 8 Briess 2 Row Pale Malt Mash 2° 34
23% 2 0 Briess Pilsen Light DME Boil 2° 44
7% 0 10 Corn Sugar (Dextrose) Boil 0° 46
6% 0 8 Briess Caramel 40L Mash 40° 34

Specific Gravity
1.077 OG
18.7° Plato

1.016 FG

You need a LOT more hops for a IIPA. Like, really a lot more. Even with a 3.5 gallon batch you should probably get 6 oz (at least!) of late hops plus a big dry hop of 3 oz or more (or multiple dry hops).

I would probably take the C40 down to 6oz, but apart from that it looks good. You could just drop the 2-row and go all extract and not even have to bother with a mash, just steep the C40 and add the dextrose at the beginning of the boil.

So I actually contacted hill farmstead over this beer and got a response from Shaun. Very nice of them to respond to a pretty ridiculous email! Class acts!

Anyways, he said send a recipe, so I did 88% pale ale malt, 7% dextrose, and 5% caramel 40. Galaxy hops at 60, 15, 0 and dry to 90 IBUs. In his email he said the best way to start cloning a beer is begin with a SMaSH. Maybe that's a hint???

Got a response about my recipe, they said it looked good, but no other comments on the actual double galaxy ipa. the only other comment in the email was "we lug lots of hops up the platform every day," in response to my guess there were not many kettle additions.
Maybe ill add another addition at 5 minutes? either way, very nice of them to repsond to my emails

More than 4 oz of dry hops can get... messy IMHO. And there is a cutoff to how much aroma you can detect from dry hopping as well. Another problem with this is actually getting that many Galaxy hops. I know the last time I tried to get them most places limited you to 4-6oz per customer due to shortages.

Thats a really great, descriptive recipe. I like the additions of a FWH and a small 60min, and large 5 and 0 min additions.

Also, I "may" have 1.5lbs of galaxy in the freezer. I've been hoarding them all so no one else can buy any!

thanks for the comments

Their brews are fantastic. I wish it was easier to get my hands on some. From the hill farmstead brews ive tasted, I'd guess 3.5 gallons of one of their ipas should have on the order of a half lb of late addition and aroma hops

this was the final recipe I used:

7 Gallons
Mash at 152 for 75 min
Sparge at 170

20lb Golden Promise
1lb caramel 40
1lb corn sugar

1oz galaxy FWH
1oz Galaxy 60min
2oz Galaxy 15min
2oz Galaxy 5min
4oz Galaxy 0min (this was done in two 2oz additions after chilling to 170deg, each for a 20min hop stand)
4oz Galaxy dry hop (this was done in 3 equal additions, 1 during fermentation, and the other two over the course of 7 days post fermentation)

US-05 yeast

What's your water look like? That's important.
