Default Possible Recipe - Hopworks IPA Clone

Hey all, I am planning for my second homebrew batch (first one is still in the secondary) and I'm trying to replicate an IPA from Hopworks which is a brewery near my home in Portland OR. I couldn't find an actual recipe, but their website said this:

Organic Hopworks IPA

Our namesake IPA is a Northwest classic. Generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial, and Cascade hops find their way into the kettle, hop-back, and dry-hop. This judicious use of the "brewers spice" creates rich and resinous flavors of citrus fruit and pine. The finest organic Canadian pilsner malt and organic Munich and Caramel malts then bring balance to your new favorite beer.

6.6% ABV
15 Degrees Plato OG
75 IBU

--------------------
I took this info to my LHBS and they helped me out with this recipe (I am using extract):

8 oz 10L crystal
8 oz munich
10 lbs. extra light malt extract

1 oz amarillo 60 min
1 oz centenial 20 min
1 oz centenial 10 min
1 oz cascade 10 min
1 oz cascade 1 min
1 oz amarillo dry hop

The target beer is pretty light in color so they also advised me to add most of the LME late in the boil, like with maybe 10 minutes left. What do you guys think...does this sound good?

I enjoyed that beer, while I was out there last summer. I think you are on the right track (nice when brewers just list the basics on their website).

It sounds fine as is, although I would move the 20 min Centennials to 60, the 10 min addition to 0, and the 10 min Cascades to dry hop. I like to really push the aromatics in an IPA, that mid-late boil additions won't add nearly as much as flameout and dry hop additions. I might even go back and get enough hops to do 1 oz of each at 0 and dry hop...

I assume that is liquid malt extract? Sounds like you might be a bit on the high side for gravity. Even without the steeping grains you are looking at 1.076, not including losses to the hops. I’d think 9 lbs would get you there, but no hard in a slightly bigger beer if you don’t mind the alcohol.

I assume you are fermenting with a clean ale yeast?

Thanks for the suggestions! I think I will try that - moving more of the hops to flameout and dry hopping. I love the aromatics myself.

And yes, it's liquid malt extract that I will be using. I would prefer to keep the final ABV near the target of 6.6, so maybe i should use less LME? I was also planning to try a full boil this time (i have an 8 gallon pot and a wort chiller that i made but haven't used yet). If I do that though i am not sure if I need to steep the grains in less water , or if I need to adjust the hops to account for that?

For the yeast i was planning to use SafeAle 05 dry american ale but they were out of that so I got Nottingham dry yeast instead. Think that will work?

Nottingham should be fine. Full boil is almost a must for a really hoppy beer, otherwise it is hard to hit those high IBUs. 2 oz of high AA% hops should be enough to bitter. 9 lbs of LME will get you to 1.068, although you'll lose some gravity to hop absorption and gain some from the grain (you can steep them in ~.5 gallon of water while the main pot comes up to a boil). SHould be fine for getting mid-6's ABV. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice! Took an awesome tour of the HUB brewery today and they actually offered to hook me up with some of their ale yeast. I cant wait to brew this recipe!

Cheers

Thank looks great! Thanks for sharing it with us. I've never had the pleasure of having that beer (a bit far away!) but I can tell from the recipe that I'd love it. Of course, I"d love any beer that had the words "Hopworks" in it, I guess!

Hey Ben,

Wow, thank you so much for posting the actual recipe! I already brewed up the "guess" version, but now that I have the real one I'll have to try this again. In fact, I may just step up to all grain sooner than I planned, so I can try to do it some justice!

You guys are really making some fantastic beer at HUB. It's great to have you contributing to this forum too. I'll definitely stop by with a sample (as long as it doesn't suck).
