Default All-Grain - Red Chair NWPA clone

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP005
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.060
Final Gravity: 1.012
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @ 62*F
Tasting Notes: Mouthfeel, bitterness, and color spot on. My verison had a little more hop aroma.

10lbs 2 row
1lb Munich
1lb Pilsner
1lb Crystal 60L
0.5lb Carapils
0.5lb Carastan

Mash @ 152*F

1.5oz Centennial (9.1%AA) @ 60
1.5oz Centennial (9.1%AA) @ 15
2oz Cascade @ 0

OG 1.060
FG 1.012

WLP005 with a starter

My tasting notes:
Mouthfeel and bitterness was dead on, as was color.
My verison had a little more aroma and not as much hop flavor as Red Chair NWPA

To be closer to Red Chair
Need to mash a bit higher.
Need to ferment higher (I fermented at 62*F) to get some esters.

Very drinkable, and very similar to Deschutes Red Chair NWPA

Thanks AZ! I was looking at making a clone of this and stumbled across your post. What made you choose 005 over 002 or 007? I was leaning towards 007 myself. I think Deschutes ferments this at 65, so you were close. I was also thinking about a hop addition for flavor in the 7-25 minute timeframe, perhaps half of the Cascade at 15 and the rest in the whirlpool? Also they do a 95 minute boil and from what I read, doing anything less than 90 with all grain can cause some differences you might want to account for. Can't get Deschutes in the DC area so I have to wait until I head out to San Diego again to get myself a few bottles. Anyhow, once I can fit this into my brew schedule I will let you know what I change up and how I think it comes out. Thanks for sharing!

I used WLP005 because it's what I had lying around and their house strain is supposedly close to Ringwood (Wyeast 1187) which is close to WLP005.

I've heard others say their strain is close to 1098, so 007 should work fine.

I actually liked the additional aroma in my version, but you could certainly move some of the cascade up a bit.

Good luck with the brew and let me know how it turns out!

I've been hunting for a good IPA the wife could enjoy on maternity leave and this may be it. She loves Red Chair (finally made it here in Chicago) and the recipe sounds pretty convincing. I'll let folks know in a few months!

Default Sounds Tasty


I was thinking I would try this recipe this weekend. Has anyone else had any experience or advice to add?

Hey everyone, thanks for working out details on Red Chair - it is definitely a top favorite!
Does anyone have suggestions on doing this as an extract or partial mash? I'd love this to be my next batch, but it'll have to be an extract based recipe - which I can't seem to find. Any help would be very much appreciated!

You could probably just sub out the 2-row for 6 pounds of the lightest DME you can get, then do a mini-mash for the other 4 pounds. If you get into darker extracts, you don't really know what combination of malts you are getting. I've never done extract conversions (or extract brews, for that matter) but I know you're kind of wandering in the dark if you want to match a certain AG profile.

I hope she's not nursing!

kind of dumb process question, but when you add the 2oz of cascades after the boil is complete are you leaving the hop bag in the brew pot until it is chilled and moved to the fermenter? if not how long are you leaving the hops in the kettle for?

I don't use a hop bag, so they end up getting chilled and added to the fermenter.
