Default Triple IPA Recipe?

I'm looking for an all-grain triple IPA recipe kit.

Does this even exist?

Thanks!

If I were to call something a Triple IPA it would have both an insane amount of hops AND an ABV somewhere >10%, taking both above suggestions out of the race. Up to 10% is within the Imperial IPA genre and I would consider an Imperial IPA the same as a Double IPA. Just an opinion.

Oops. Looks like Younger is 11%. Sorry. I guess I'd definitely consider that one a Triple.

Not mine, but...

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/offi...le-ipa-288802/

"Official Recipe: Alpha God (Triple IPA)
Draconian Libations': Alpha God

Est OG: 1.100
Est FG: 1.010
Est SRM: 7.6
Est IBU: 150
Est ABV: 12.0%

6 Gallons
65% Eff
147 deg mash @ 90 Minutes
75 Minute boil

12 lbs 00 ozs Weyermann Pale Ale (50.5%)
05 lbs 00 ozs Simpsons Golden Promise (21.1%)
03 lbs 00 ozs Weyermann Vienna
01 lbs 12 ozs Dextrose
01 lbs 00 ozs Castle Caramel Pils
01 lbs 00 ozs Weyermann Cara Foam

1.475 Oz Magnum - 75 Mins
1.000 Oz Super Alpha - 36 Mins
1.000 Oz Centennial - 30 Mins
1.000 Oz Warrior - 24 Mins
1.000 Oz Super Alpha - 18 Mins
1.000 Oz Centennial - 12 Mins
1.000 Oz Warrior - 6 Mins
1.000 Oz Super Alpha - Flame Out
1.000 Oz Centennial - Flame Out
1.000 Oz Warrior - Flame Out
0.750 Oz Super Alpha - 10 Day Dry-Hop
0.750 Oz Centennial - 10 Day Dry-Hop
0.750 Oz Warrior - 10 Day Dry-Hop

2 pk WLP001 Cal Ale in 1.25 L starter (stirplate)

I want to believe that I can achieve 1.010 using dextrose and a 147 degree mash, but Im not whole-heartedly convinced I will get it there. If it finishes under 1.015 I will be ok with it, but I desire as close to 1.010 as possible. This brew should challenge me. I will ferment low to eliminate rocket fuel fusels. I had originally worked on this recipe using Bravo instead of Centennial, but more research leads me to believe that I can get a tremndous hop flavor and aroma using the blend of these 3 hops. Some spiciness, some fruitiness, and hopefully some of the "lemon-grassiness" of Super Alpha...bring it on!"

This would be a winner:

17lbs 2-row
8oz Victory
8oz Crystal 40
1lb Dextrose
4oz Warrior @ 90
1oz Citra @ 30
2oz Simcoe @ 15
2oz Simcoe @ 0
2oz Amarillo @ 0
2oz Centennial @ 0

Dry Hop:

2oz Amarillo
2oz Citra
2oz Simcoe
1oz Centennial
Divide those hops into 4 additions. Add them once every 5 days for 20 days total.

There are three critical things to an IPA this big:

A. You need to pitch A LOT of heathy yeast. That doesn't mean pitch onto a cake, the yeast will pickup a lot of the bitterness, and you'll have a less bitter beer, but you need like a 4-5QT starter, or 2.5 packs of dry yeast.
B. You need to mash VERY low like 148* and make sure this beer dries out. Under 1.014 would be the goal. You absolutely don't want this to finish at 1.018+
C. You need to dry hop the crap out of it. 1-2 ounces is no where near enough. Add your dry hops in multiple additions and use like 7-8oz (not joking).

FYI: I don't understand why most homebrewers can't write recipes with hop additios more than 1 ounce per variety. I know i can be guilty of it myself, but I still find it funny.

Did you brew this ever and if so how did it turn out?

Did you have to age it at all or drink fresh?

Nugsfan I don't know Scottland but he know what he is talking about. I read the recipe and that is what I would do...... this is a tricky beer to make and if you don't do it right you will come up with sweet ipa and I would say 1.021-1.025 FG or higher.

The only thing I would do is CO2 it 2 mins after cooled and then 2 mins after the first 12 hours then 1 min after 24 hours

and 3 packs of http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/s...whitbread.html

I am the Imperial Guru and I only make big beers.....
