So my friends and I are looking to brew a IIPA in the near future, and one of the things I am focusing on is getting it dry enough. IIPAs on the sweeter side (such as Hopslam, one of my favorites) can certainly be done, but I think it takes a large amount of restraint and skill to do properly.
This being my first attempt at a IIPA, I wanted to shoot for something on the dry side - probably 1.010-1.012. Basically I am looking for advice on my recipe from people that have brewed these before on whether or not this FG would be feasible with my malt bill, this is for a 3 gallon batch:
6 lbs Briess Light LME - 82.7%
0.75 lbs Corn Sugar - 10.3%
4 oz Carapils - 3.5%
4 oz Crystal 40 - 3.5%
OG - 1.086 from ProMash
The Carapils is odd considering the sugar, but I wanted something to help boost my head retention, so I'm going for that aspect of it rather than the added body.
So what do you guys think, will I be able to get my beer down to the desired gravity with this recipe?
