Default IIPA with Galaxy and Simcoe

Trying this recipe out to test Galaxy. Thought it would be a good pairing with Simcoe...any thoughts?

11 lbs 2 row
2 lbs rye malt
8 oz carapils
4 oz C40
4 oz C80
1 lb sugar

Mash at 150

60 minute boil:
2 oz Columbus (FWH)
1 oz Columbus (60)
.5 oz Simcoe, 1 oz Galaxy (10)
1 oz Simcoe, 2 oz Galaxy (2)
1 oz Simcoe, 2 oz Galaxy (0)
1.5 oz Simcoe, 3 oz Galaxy (DH)

US05 - 3 packets


I like the grain bill pretty well, and have used it 3-4 times. Not sure about the combo of Simcoe and Galaxy as well as the 1:2 proportion Simcoe:Galaxy.

Why the C-Pils AND sugar?

I'm guessing the C-Pils for flavor and sugar for alcohol contribution...

I'm not a fan of darker crystals in IPA but it looks really tasty otherwise. If it were me, I would drop the 80 and double up the 40. The hop schedule looks great. :cheers:

I made it that way years ago (read-before I knew that the two basically counteracted each other) and really enjoyed it. Just haven't bothered changing it because it works.
