It's clear enough to see through !! Just kidding.

Alkalinity (as CaCO3) = 57.7
Bicarbonate Alk - 57.7
Chloride - 54.3
Fluoride = 1.05
hardness - 175
Nitrate (as N) - .08
Sulfate (as SO4) - 106
Calcium - 44.1
Iron = .16
magnesium - 11.6
potassium - 3.2
Sodium - 36.8

All in mg/L

These are all just numbers to me. I have really no idea what they mean. Just starting to try to make sense of the water chemistry thing. Spent some time yesterday trying to figure out EZ water calculator. Any help you can give me is much appreciated. Thanks

Also, I would change the hop sched to 60min, 10 min, 0min, and dry hop. a

oh, and irish moss. this was a cloudy mofo that never cleared up.

Lighter crystal malts will just make the beer taste sweeter. If it was too sweet, I would suggest just dropping the amount of c40 instead of using a lighter crystal. Though the 5% c40 in your recipe seems like the right range to me...

Also, I find that certain citrusy hops like galaxy and citra can lend a sweet flavor themselves. Perhaps thats where the some of the perceived sweetness is coming from?

yes this is definitely true about the hop-sweetness! The beer turned out way darker than i thought it would, and much darker than the original, which is also why i plan do use less, if any, caramel malt next time.

Since Shaun mentioned making a SMaSH and going from there, I thought you might be interested in the galaxy IPA I made. I used magnum hops for the bittering addition, but otherwise it is all galaxy and the grain bill is 100% 2-row. I've been lucky enough to try the Double Galaxy from HF, but I wouldn't be able to tell you how close my recipe comes to it. I would like to take what I have and work it into a DIPA that approximates Double Galaxy if I can. Here is my recipe.

Type: All Grain Date: 10/6/2013
Batch Size (fermenter): 6.75 gal Brewer: Brac
Boil Size: 8.00 gal Asst Brewer:
Boil Time: 60 min Equipment: My Equipment - round cooler
End of Boil Volume 6.75 gal Brewhouse Efficiency: 72.00 %
Final Bottling Volume: 6.54 gal Est Mash Efficiency 77.3 %
Fermentation: Ale, Two Stage Taste Rating(out of 50): 30.0

Ingredients
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
17 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 100.0 %
1.25 oz Magnum [12.20 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 2 36.5 IBUs
1.00 oz Galaxy [15.20 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 3 18.1 IBUs
1.00 oz Galaxy [15.20 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 4 13.2 IBUs
1.00 oz Galaxy [15.20 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 5 7.3 IBUs
2.00 oz Galaxy [15.20 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 6 0.0 IBUs
1.0 pkg American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) [124.21 ml] Yeast 7 -
3.00 oz Galaxy [14.00 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days Hop 8 0.0 IBUs

This is a picture of the first batch; the second batch is fermenting already.

Default I just brewed your recipe!

I'm a member of a homebrew club in Williamsburg Virginia, and we recently had a club competition of single hop beers. I wanted to do an IPA, and stumbled across this recipe in my search, and decided to give it a try. I agree, it turned out great. I just now saw the second page and wish I had seen it earlier, I agree about the cloudiness and the spanish moss. The hop/sweetness balance I think turned out pretty good, but I don't . Thanks for the recipe!

I haven't tried Double Galaxy myself, but did brew a DIPA a few weeks ago with all-Galaxy hops. If anyone would like to take a look to see how it compares to what they have in mind...
