Default IPA Recipe Suggestion

I was trying to figure out a recipe for an IPA. I want it to be really hoppy. How does this look?

13 lbs light LME
1 lb 60 Crystal Malt
.5 lb Roasted Malt
4 oz Chinook
2 oz Amarillo

Hop Schedule:
Cascade 1 oz every 10 minutes for the first 40 minutes of boil
Amarillo .25 oz every 2.5 minutes starting at 40 minutes into boil and adding last at flameout.


I want it to feel like a grapefruit is kicking me in my tongue. I was also kicking around the idea of oak conditioning in secondary. Any suggestions? Thanks.

4 oz of chinook is going to be too much. Do you mean cascade?

I did. I just changed from Cascade to Chinook and forgot to change the amount. Do you think it would be better with Cascade or Chinook? If i was going to use Chinook I meant to put 2.5 oz. Also, I should mention I use hop pellets.

I think cascade would go better with the amarillo, they both are citursy.

That's still a LOT of Chinook. Do you have ProMash or BeerSmith? Download the trial version of BeerSmith (it's full-featured for three weeks) and play around with the recipe; you might be shocked at some of the IBU calcs you end up with. I mean, I love bitter - but there's bitter, and then there's BITTER.

If you put 0.5 lb of roasted barley in there it will be dark.

What do you mean by roasted malt?

Do you mean toasted?

Ok, that's fine.

Going by your hop schedule and ingredients, I'm getting an OG of about 1.090 and IBU's at about 90.

That should work for an Imperial IPA, if that's what you are going for.

For even more aroma I'd dry hop about 2 oz in the secondary as well.

I agree, a dry hop would be a great idea. maybe 1 oz cascade, one oz amarillo
