The pineapple you taste is from the Simcoe/Amarillo combo IMO.

I agree with that statement "Simcoe/Amarillo combo"

So what do you think of the recipe/hop schedule, it sounds like you were looking at coming up with something similar?

Well according to the email I received from the, there should be a nice late kettle addition of Amarillo and generous dry hopping with Simcoe to get the signature aroma of Hopslam.
As far as the other additions, Centennial would definitely be in there and maybe just go with Crystal, and Glacier in the kettle MAybe stack them Centennial for bittering, Crystal/Glacier for flavor, and Amarillo @ knockout, followed by Simcoe dry hopping. Also, they say the use caramel/crystal "MALTS" implying multiple so I would use a combination of 20 and 40.
This is just what I think, too many hops may muddy the flavor profile maybe keep it simple at first then adjust as you go.

This recipe looks great! I'm still a beginner all grain brewer so please excuse me if this is a dumb question, the boil time is 90 min.. I'm trying to follow the hop schedule and wondering when exactly you add the various hops. Do you add the Amarillo Gold and Simcoe with 40 minutes remaining in the boil and then add the Glacier and Cascades with 20 minutes left? etc.? Or do you add the amarillo and simcoe at two different times?

If it says 40 min then you add the with 40 min left in the boil. Dry hops happens after primary fermentation is complete.

I have a concern about the 2.5 lbs of Honey in your recipe.. So today when I racked my 8.9% abv with 68 IBU, I added 1/2 lb to 2 gallons. I pulled a pint off the bottom of the car boy, warmed it slightly, I also stirred it hard before I racked it to pick up some extra yeast and added the honey to it. will compare with a hopslam in about 3 weeks to 4. I did some bottle testing with IPA's I am drinking from bottles, and a 1/4 teaspoon of honey added was better than higher. Your post from Bells said a dollop of honey which I take to mean a very small amount. I am thinking 1 pound of honey which means your grain bill is going to be higher to get to 1087.

Ameadrat,

I look forward to hearing what your results would be .... I formulated my recipe from the jamil show's brewing classic style podcast regardingImperial IPA's. He mentions the adding simple sugars and keeping it at ~10% to help lighten and dry out the beer a little. There's also some mention of it in a Zymurgy issue I have where Vinnie C talks of it's benefits .... either way, we'll see.

Wth your IPA's that you added honey to, Did you add them during boil? at flame out? secondary? at time of pour?

This is going to be an experiment to get in the ball park and then adjust. I'll have a yeast starter of pacman going today in place of the american ale, and I'm thinking I'll end up brewing a second batch with a different hop schedule based off of reccomendations on here ....

sleepyemt,
I added it to secondary fermantation. I also thieved a little when I got home. I would have preferred the last ten minutes of the boil to kill bacteria but It's only 2 gallons.
At one day, I could taste very lite honey. My guess at this point would be Im at 5% and the brains are saying 10%,so your probably save in that range. It'll be 3-4 weeks before my next IPA, which mean this IPA will be bottled. At that point i hope you have the hops where you think they should be but that one definetly will be the one I try to clone. As a point of reference a guy named Tall Dave got me to brewing beer, even though his wife would take my bottle of mead off to the corner, This got me to thinking of him. He was a great guy. Cheers TD
