Default All-Grain - None More Black IPA (Cascadian Dark Ale)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: S-05
Yeast Starter: None
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: None
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.062
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 106
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 26.5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @ 68
Additional Fermentation: None
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Kegged
Tasting Notes: See below.

So this was my first shot at a "Black IPA" and I think I hit the nail on the head in terms of what I was going for. I was a bit worried about the color but the more I check it out the happier I am with it.

This mother is a punch in the face - around 7% ABV, 106 IBU, ready to destroy your tastebuds in the best way possible. Huge hop punch from the Warrior with a nice spicy/citrusy combo from the Sorachi and Amarillo. There's enough malt to know it's a CDA, but it isn't overly frontal like some brewers seem to go for.

Check it out, and as always comments are welcome!

9 lbs. US 2-Row
1 lb. Munich
0.5 lb. Cara-Pils
0.5 lb. Carafa III
0.5 lb. Crystal 80

1 oz. Warrior (17.2% AA) 60 min.
0.5 oz. Sorachi (10.9% AA) 30 min.
0.5 oz. Amarillo Gold (7.2% AA) 30 min.
0.5 oz. Sorachi (10.9% AA) 15 min.
0.5 oz. Amarillo Gold (7.2% AA) 15 min.
0.5 oz. Sorachi (10.9% AA) 5 min.
0.5 oz. Amarillo Gold (7.2% AA) 5 min.

1 oz. Amarillo Gold (7.2% AA) Dry hop 7 days

1 packet US-05

Mash at 151 for 60 minutes, sparge to boil volume (6.5 g)

This looks pretty tasty. My CDA was way to roasty, I'll have to give this recipe a try.

Yeah I wasn't sure. I mean, technically it isn't a pale ale in any shape or form, so I think this section might be better since CDA is a newer American style.

I was just more thinking about the IBU's. Trust me.. I could care less.. I don't brew to style.

BJCP lists 30-45 as the IBU's for an American Ale

What's a substitute for the Sorachi? My LHBS doesn't have any, and I can't find it on hop-equivalent charts. Looking forward to brewing this this weekend! Kyle

the reason you can't find a substitute is because there really aren't any. sorachi is lemony, which is unique for hops

Thanks. I looked it up and found the Sorachi- lemony info. I'm thinking about substituting with Centennial or Cascade. Maybe Simcoe. Anyway, I'll be brewing it this weekend unless I can't get ingredients. Kyle

Yeah Sorachi is a weird one. It's got a crazy spicey note to it, as well. Any of the citrus hops (Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade) will all work, you'll just get a slightly different flavor profile on the brew.

Update: kegged a version of this today, subbing Cascade for Sorachi because I couldn't get Sorachi on time. Anyway, I got no hop flavor from the Hydro sample. I cool/ retaste the sample, and at fridge temps the toasted 2-row came through much more. Some hop presence but not much. I'm dry hopping with 1.5oz Amarillo leaves to use up a half-ounce I had around. I like it, and hope to make the actual recipe sometime. Also, I'm hoping the malt/ toastyness mellows after some keg time. I'm certain it will. Thanks for the base recipe! Kyle
