Default Today's Brew- Untitled IPA

So, came up with this last minute. Hoping it comes out half as good as it looks on paper.


5.5 gallon batch. Keggle on turkey fryer burner + Igloo cooler + Copper coil wort chiller.


7lb Marris Otter
4lb Pale 2 Row
1.5lb Vienna
1lb Flaked Wheat
.5lb Crystal 20

1oz 8.1AA% Centennial @ 60 minutes
.75oz 12.2AA% Simcoe @ 20
.75oz 10.4AA% Amarillo @ 20
1.25oz Simcoe @ 5
1.25oz Amarillo @ 5
2oz Simcoe 7 day dry hop
2oz Amarillo 7 day dry hop

US05 for at least 10 days at 64. Mash at 150.

Beer Smith has it estimated at a shade under 7% ABV and 67.4 IBU. Should be nice when it's ready. Pics later once it's underway.

Default Looks awesome

Love the hop schedule and choice of Marris Otter for your base malt. Let us know how it turns out.

Oh trust me, I will. I'm heading to Bobert's now. I've been ready to get this beer brewed for a while. It took me ages to find the Amarillo.

Okay, changed a little before brewing, SG is 1.053, pictures to come later once I make it home. 60 and 20 minute additions are in, 5 minute is going in about 5 minutes from now. Smells awesome, looks fantastic compared to the last beer we did, and tasted pretty good, for being unhopped, it wasn't overly sweet. I think this one might end up being a home run.


Cheers!

Pitched yeast at 9 PM last night at 67 degrees. Should have dropped some overnight. Pics coming in a little bit.

SG sample:



Looks pretty good, even if it is cloudy as of right now. And on that note, I forgot the Irish moss. Oh well.
