Default IIPA Recipe

Here's my recipe that I'm using today, does it look good?
This is my 5th batch, 4th custom batch...AG here I come!!

5 gallon Extract with steeping grains

10# LME
1# Belgian Candi syrup (40 srm)
3 oz maltodextrin
irish moss @ 10

Steeping grains:
.50 honey malt
.25 carapils
.25 crystal 20L

1.5 oz Chinnok @60
1 oz centinenal @30
1 oz citra @15
1 oz amarillo @15
1 oz cascade @15
1 oz amarillo @5
1 oz Centennial @5
1 oz Citra @ flameout
1 oz amarillo @ flameout
1 oz cascade @ flameout

2 oz Centennial dry hop
1 oz Citra dry hop
1 oz Amarillo dry hop

2 vials of WLP 001 with a starter

My question is I have never used the Belgian candi syrup and my LBS suggested I use that instead of dextrose to kick up the abv. Will the color change my brew alot with 40srm?

If I use it would it be a IIPA still or am I leaning towards a Trippel?

Anything you would change?

Hop schedule looks good?
I got a ton of hops also, so should I use more hops?(I am from San Diego, so I am a hophead )

This forum is awesome by the way!

The fermentables look good but I just sort of question why you are using so many different hops. Not that it is going to be a bad thing, it is just a lot of different stuff going on there. I usually try and stick with 3 different varieties or so. On a side-note, dry-hopping with citra is now one of my favorite things to do. I just did it on a french saison and it turned out just marvelous. Happy brewing


Let them drink beer

Simple sugar and dextrin additions seem at odds. What's the rationale?

Also, it's very likely your extract was mashed with a portion of dextrin malt.
