Default Session style CDA

On brewing TV episode 28, Dawson did and extract session style Cascadian Dark Ale. Looked awesome. Found his recipe online and was thinking about ordering it. Made a little tweak though and was wondering what some of you thought of this:

0.5# weyermann carafa 3 for steeping
6.0# NB Gold Malt syrup @ 60
1oz warrior pellet @ 60
1oz Cascade @ 10
1oz Columbus @ 0

Pitch safale us 05

Any thoughts? Dawson dry hopped the third ounce and it was centennial. I only have one FV. Would dry hopping in primary be an ok thing to do or would my slight tweak turn out great? Thanks!

I dry hop in my primary. Never had a problem. I usually do it at week three for 5 days or so.

Very cool. I might just give that a whirl then.

Use the Carafa special. It's the dehusked version so it's smoother. Maybe throw in some C40?

The carafa 3 I was looking at is dehusked too. Maybe half pound of the c40?

Cool, this has me already excited for the next brew and I just brewed yesterday. I think as a resident of NW OR it's almost mandatory to brew a CDA at least once.

This style of beer intrigues me. I love IPA's and I also love darker beers. CDA's are the best of both worlds. I have found a few recipes online and will be tweaking them to my own version soon. I have a Black IPA from Northern Brewer in the secondary right now. I can't wait for it to finish. I posted some info and recipes on my blog below.

Nice blog, thanks for the link. I haven't always been the biggest IPA fan, but have recently had some that brought out the hop flavor very well without it simply being a bitter bomb. I also like a good porter so the idea of a CDA seems worth a shot and especially a sessionable one that I can knock back a few with!

Changed up the recipe just a bit.

Steep 10 oz dehusked carafa III
6# NB Gold malt syrup
.5oz warrior @60
.5oz warrior @20
1oz centennial @0
1oz cascade @0
1oz chinook @0

Safale us-05 dry yeast
Target OG 1.047
27 SRM
44.5 IBU
Projected 4.5% abv
(according to the hopville.com beer calculus)

I'm hoping to have a new burner for this one so I can do full volume boil.

Going to try a little hop bursting. Was inspired by Bend, ORegon's Good Life Brewery and their Descender IPA. Really great hop flavor and aroma and didn't smack me upside the head with too much bitterness.

Hoping for a drinkable, session style, CDA. Thoughts on this revision?
