*I have an all extract recipe I call BuckIPA listed in the recipe section. It has 4.5oz of 3 different hops in the boil for flavor,& 1.5oz of the 3 for a 1 week dry hop. It has a color simular to DFH with ABV of 5.86%. It also had a light toastiness to the malt character besides the bready maltiness part. Adding 2-3 more ounces to the recipe would be quite hoppy indeed,but might bury the maltiness.

Perhaps a lower attenuating yeast would help with the malt/hops balance. WLP011 is first that comes to mind. It's a clean yeast and 65-70% attenuation. WLP002 is also lower attenuating yeast but puts out a lot of fruit.

Then there are yeast that lean towards either maltiness or hoppiness that attenuate well too. But balancing ingredients is the bigger part of it. The right yeast brings it all together.

Okay, to follow up on this idea... I am currently brewing a "session IPA" using BYO's Pliny the Toddler, with a few tweaks. The hops are VERY dominate. Here's what I brewed:

5.5 gal

3.5 lbs MO
3.5 lbs 2-row
1.0 lb CaraPils
0.5 lb sucrose

0.75 oz Warrior 60 mins (16AA)
0.75 oz Galena 10 mins (12AA)
0.75 oz Cascade 10 mins (6.2AA)
0.75 oz Cascade 0 mins (6.2AA)

Safale US-05

Single-infusion mash @ 152.5 F 60 mins
90 min boil
Actual OG = 1.046
After 5 days fermentation (today) = 1.008 (~5% abv)
IBU estimate = 67

It tastes awesome. It's dry, with only a hint of sweetness, and a strong hop punch, especially with the Cascades. The malt is light on the tongue, almost like an American Lager, but the hops dance through unimpeded and there's no nasty, cloying crystal malt "scotch" flavors. The MO contributes noticeable but gentle toastiness and compliments the Cascade pine.

Huh. That's less hops than I use. Mines a hair darker,but still has a nice backbone against the Columbus,cascade,& nugget hops I used. Interesting that the lighter malt lets less hops punch through & still give some malty backbone.

Whats going on with the carapils and sucrose? They seem like they are used for the exact oppossite reasons: one for more body, the other for less... couldn't you decrease the carapils and not use the sucrose? Im confused at this combo
