You definitely won't regret it. I took one sip and immediately knew this was going to be a year-round staple.

It's been quite a while since I posted this so I'd like to bump it exclaiming that I believe this is the best IPA I've ever had (excluding double IPA's and the like). The hop schedule is one true to Sierra Nevada and this recipe was originally an intent to clone Celebration Ale. Truth be told (on my part), I think I fully succeeded in the sense that I made a great IPA. Celebration Ale it is not, but a superior IPA it is. I'm bumping this in hopes that another brewer out there gives this a go and experiences this brew. "Perfect blend of malt and hops". Probably the best beer you can brew with these three hops. I'm currently drinking a bottle that has been aged (just for the hell of it) since the original brew in the post. It's crystal clear, the hops have mellowed out, but this aged beer is not the one I am bumping. I've had many people try this beer and after having one, they were willing to buy more for more than a retail price would suggest it's worth. I think that is an accomplishment in its own right. Out of all my brews, this will remain the staple in my brew-schedule until the day I die or decide to stop brewing; whichever comes first.

I'm sold, I'll be brewing this tomorrow. Did you use all pellets for the dry hopping?

Sorry for the crazy late response, but yes. I used all pellets. Bought these 3 hops in bulk from hopsdirect a while back. Great, if not, the best use for them yet. You can use a paint-strainer bag if you so desire? I didn't get any hop sludge in my bottling bucket (or racking cane etc.). I don't remember if I used a paint strainer (mesh) bag or not.. Nope, pretty sure I didn't. Also used Brewmasterswarehouse to buy the grain.

This beer is an amazing double IPA. On par with some of my favorite Chicago microbrews. Great recipe!

First off thanks for the recipe David. This was my first all-grain batch, just brewed it up earlier today.

I went ahead and used loose hops instead of pellets. I also used the first 1oz of Chinook for a first wort hop instead of the mash hopping.
I did not take into account that this ammount of loose hops would soak up a lot of my boil, so I only ended up with 4.5 gallons total.

Anyways, there were soooo many hops in my boil that I could not even whirlpool as I intended. I had to poor it through a strainer into my fermenter.
I think this led to a lot of hot/cold break material in my fermenter. I noticed a lot of it settling only after about an hour.

Since there is so much material already on the bottom would you recommend a secondary fermentation? I know you said it wasnt necessary, and I had only planned for a primary. I just dont think I want it sitting on top of this material for to long.

Also my OG was only about 1.060, quite a bit lower than your OG listed. And what would you recommend priming this with?

Anyways, it tasted and smelled great already, I cant wait to see what it becomes!

Sorry I don't check up on here very often, but I'd honestly just leave it in the primary and see what happens. What did you end up doing? I'd imagine this would be pretty intense using loose/fresh/whole hops instead of pellets.

I batch sparge and I believe I did 3 runnings and ended up taking a good 6 1/2 gallons out of it to make up for boil-off and I think I ended up with 54 bottles when I did bottle it. I usually get around 80-88% efficiency, and I can't remember, but I think that I listed MY original gravity, not necessarily based on 75%. This beer is a beautiful thing and a great one to have around during the winter.

Well it has been in the bottle for a little over a week, cant wait to try one on friday.

I ended up racking to a secondary, and dryhopping for 7 more days.
I also used some coopers drops to prime each bottle.

Anyways, I will keep you updated.

Well its been in the bottle for about 3 weeks now. I have to say that it taste GREAT, and the aroma is awesome as well. My brew ended up a little cloudy (will try some irish moss next batch) Very little head thus far, but I can see it starting to show up as it gets a little older.

I have to say that I am very pleased with this being my first AG batch. I love IPA and this really hit the spot. A great way to start this new hobby, thanks again David.
