The batch that is in my primary is a recipe that I kinda created but followed basic IPA formulation but modified with Chocolate malt.
7 lbs light dme
1 lb crystal malt hot steeped
2 oz chocolate malt cold steeped, added juice to the boil with the first cascade addition. (15 min)
.5 oz each magnum and pearl hops (60 min)
.5 oz each magnum and pearl hops (30 min)
1 oz cascade (15 min)
1 oz cascade (flame out)
White labs 001 yeast
Looking for an IPA with a touch of a coffee/nutty/chocolate flavor.
Would this still qualify as an IPA??
