Kettle size (size - in gallons): 8
Carboy or Bucket? (size - in gallons): either. 6gallon better bottle, standard ale pails, 5 gallon carboy
Extract, Partial Mash, or All-Grain: AG
Do you BIAB? Yes, No, or What the Hell is that?:
Are you able to rack to secondary?: no
Boil size (in gallons): 6-7

List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American IPAs:
List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American Imperial IPAs:
What is your desired alcohol level for this recipe?: 5-7
Can you make a yeast starter, or do you prefer dry yeast?: prefer dry, not against starters
Patience level (1-none, 2-low, 3-medium, 4-high): 3-4
Quality expectation (1-I don't care, I just want to drink, 2-If you can brew me the average beer then that's cool, 3-pretty high, 4-I want world class): 3-4
Balance (1-I would rather have something more sweet than bitter, 2-I want an absolute even bitterness and sweetness, 3-give me a beer with smooth, yet prominent bitterness, 4-blast me with bitterness and peel off my enamel): 3
Body (1-Thin and highly drinkable, 2-Moderate body, drinks fairly easy, 3-Full body, a sipper for sure): 2
Malt profile (1-I want to taste a lot of different grains, 2-I want an even portrayal of malt and hops, 3-I don't really care about the malt as much as the hops, but malt still matters, 4-I want all hops, in my face with little to no malt character): 2

As far as favorites go, around here we don't have a great selection of IPAs or IIPAs and when we do get them, they aren't very fresh. Love dogfish, and all 3 Floyd's. Alpha King is a little over rated though. Gumballhead is one of my favorite beers

I shall make this on May 17. We'll see how she goes! I think my LHBS is out of Amarillo, so I may sub with simcoe. But we'll see. Also depending on their prices for leaf hops, I may just go pellet. Again, we'll see.

Heady Topper is probably the perfect example of what I want. I love the floral and spicy hop notes - I'm getting bored with just bitterness. Citra or something similar would be lovely. A malt aftertaste is perfect.

Thank you!

If you ever crack that code, please share with me! Heady Topper is the best liquid ever to exist.

Heck, I'll bite!

I'd really like to use what I already have available, so maybe you can work within the below parameters. I'm fine with buying some specialty malts but would like to not buy any additional hops.

I've got pale ale malt, pilsner malt, Munich malt, and wheat malt. For hops I've got:

Citra 2 oz.
Amarillo 1 oz.
Pearle 3 oz.
Magnum 3 oz.
Cascade 3 oz.
Tettnang 1 oz.
NB 6 oz.
Kent Goldings 2 oz.
Palisade 1 oz.
Glacier 1 oz.
Liberty 1 oz.
Falc Flight 4 oz.
Saaz 8 oz.
Columbus 13 oz.


Kettle size (size - in gallons): 10g
Carboy or Bucket? (size - in gallons): 6.5g carboy
Extract, Partial Mash, or All-Grain: AG
Do you BIAB? Yes, No, or What the Hell is that?: no
Are you able to rack to secondary?: yup
Boil size (in gallons): up to 10g
Batch size (in gallons): 6g
List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American IPAs: Avery IPA, Ranger, Green Flash West Coast
List your top 3-5 favorite commercial American Imperial IPAs: DagunA, Pliny the Elder, Saint Arnold Endeaver, Hop Stoopid
What is your desired alcohol level for this recipe?: 6.5-8%
Can you make a yeast starter, or do you prefer dry yeast?: Either works.

Patience level: 4-high

Quality expectation: 4-I want world class

Balance: 3-give me a beer with smooth, yet prominent bitterness

Body: 1-Thin and highly drinkable

Malt profile (1-I want to taste a lot of different grains, 3-I don't really care about the malt as much as the hops, but malt still matters: a mix of 1 and 3. I want the malt to matter and what I do taste, I want it to be a more complex backbone. Adding pilsner or wheat is welcome.

Looking forward to what you come up with!

I have a family emergency I must attend to this weekend. I'll try and respond with some more recipes soon.

HopnessMontster, you're next

Yes, they are different for full volume boils with no top off water added. Evaporation occurs during the boil. In 60 minutes, usually about 0.70 to 1.2 gallons water is typically lost. Boiloff rate depends on your kettle measurements, heat output, and many other factors.

Cool thread. Take as much time as you like. Feel free to reply in terms as general or specific as you like. Anyone else who wants to chime in, I'm all ears.
I left out the commercial examples, because I almost never buy beer. I would like to make some IPA's where the hops are the star, but are willing to share the spotlight. I have MO and rye as my base grains, and am willing to supplement with specialty; although I believe caramel is that gooey stuff in candy bars and crystal is a kind of meth.

My hop inventory:simcoe, citra, cascade, apollo, Chinook, Columbus, Magnum, Crystal, Willamette, Pacific gem
WYeast Farm:1056, 3522, 1388, 1762, 1318, 1335, 3724

Kettle size[/B] 7
Bucket? 5 gallons):
All-Grain: Specifically MO
[B]Do you BIAB? No
Are you able to rack to secondary?: Able, but disinclined
Boil size (in gallons): 6.5ish
Batch size (in gallons): 5ish
What is your desired alcohol level for this recipe?: 4-8
[B]Can you make a yeast starter: yes
[B]Patience level: 3.5
[B]Quality expectation: 3.5
[B]Balance: 3.5
Body: 2
[B]Malt profile:3
