IPA Recipe? Hop Devil or Two Hearted...
Anybody have a good extract IPA recipe similar to Victory Hop Devil or Bell's Two Hearted?
Not sure about Hop Devil, but my impression of Two Hearted is a pretty straightforward American IPA with Centennial hops from end to end (love those Centennials). I can't imagine this would be awful:
Three Hearted Ale Extract Kit -- Kit Inventory Sheet
Looks delicious, but 5 oz of hops in 5 gallons... ouch!
Happy brewing :mug:
That Three-Hearted kit looks really good - I have never drank a Two Hearted ale but I have enjoyed several batches of homebrew done with all Centennial hops. YUMMY!!!
This is a Two-Hearted recipe I tweaked myself. If you do not want to do a mini-mash, replace the 2-Row with an additional 2 pounds of LME. You will still need to steep the Crystal 40 though. However, I have found that the 2-row reduces any extract "twang" and gives it a much fresher taste. It also adds a few gravity points :tank:
This is a mini-mash
3 pounds American 2 Row
1 pound Crystal 40
7 pounds Gold LME
1 oz Centennial 60 min
1 oz Centennial 20 min
2 oz Centennial 5 min
1 oz Centennial Dry Hop
Yeast: Safale US-05 or Danstar Nottingham
Mash at 152f for 60 minutes. Ferment at 62 degrees for 7-10 days. Transfer to secondary, add dry hops. Rack in 7-10 days to keg or bottling vessel.
OG at 75% Efficiency for 5 gallons is 1.070
Well, this is what I'm going to go with... thoughts?
1 lb crushed crystal malt 60L - Steep at 155-160 for 20 minutes
3 lbs Pale DME at 60 min
1.5 oz. Centennial (9%) at 60 Min
0.5 Centennial (9%) & 0.5 Oz UK First Gold (8.1%) at 15 min
1 oz UK FG (8.1%) at 5 min
4 lbs Amber DME at knockout
11.5 grams Safale US-05
1-2 weeks primary (TBD)
2-4 weeks secondary with 0.5 oz UK FG (8.1%) dry hopped for last 5 days.
OG - 1.062
FG - ~1.016
IBU's - 69.9
I have no experience with UK First Gold hops, but the IBU level looks good for an IPA. Go for it.
Your recipe looks good. Should be pretty hoppy. Holding back the bulk of the extract till the end will deff help your hop utilization. Thats what I would recommend with the recipe I posted... but I just thought that was assumed so I didnt specify. Not sure about the FG for your dry-hop as I have never dry hopped with first gold. However, I would just add a full ounce.
I just did a Two Hearted Ale from AHS but they switched out the Centennial for Amarillo.
Straight forward AND - not high ABV.
That recipe - why so long in teh secondary??
You'll have to convert this to extract, but this recipe made a darn good clone of Two-Hearted Ale. This isn't my recipe, btw. I got it from somewhere else.
11 lbs 2-row
2 lbs Vienna
8 oz Crystal 10
6 oz Crystal 40
8 oz carapils
1 oz centennial 60 minutes
.66 oz centennial 45 minutes
.66 oz centennial 30 minutes
.66 oz centennial 15 minutes
WLP001 (White Laps Cal Ale)
1 oz centennial for dry hop
OG 1.063, FG 1.012, Calculated IBU's 61.3
I didn't do a side by side but I've had a lot of Two-Hearted, and this seemed pretty close.
Then along comes GOD... I mean noremorse1. Thank You.
To all the others that helped without b&*^tching... thanks.
