steep 1# Munich and 12 oz Crystal 60L
Instead of the 11# pale, use 6.6# Light DME
Hop/boil as usual.

I have the capacity to do a full boil on the turkey fryer, so if i make these adjustments noted above i should be good to go?
I was looking at the same thing myself. But I've found out that Munich is not suitable to be steeped, it needs to be mashed. So I think it calls for a partial mash. I think that's how I'll do it. If anyone knows a steeping grain that will give us similar characteristics to munich, let us know.

Mashing and steeping are essentially the same thing. If you're extracting w/grain: 1)put the grain in a bag with cold water 2) heat to 150-155F 3) hold for at this temp for 30 mins or 60 mins in you can wait that long.

I bring it up to temp on the stove, put the lid on and cover with a beach towel doubled over. This holds temp for quite some time. I do this in a smaller pot inside at the stove. I use this time to bring the rest of my water up to a boil outside and just get everything else ready.

Yes, I've done 2 partial mashes already. I think a base malt would also be required unless the Munich is considered a base malt, so I would probably throw in a kilo of pale malt into the mash.

Brewed this on 1-30....into keg on 2-19. Pulled a pint tonight and it was great. I usually brew ten gallon batches and pulled a 83% efficiency on this five gallon. I had to sub nugget for the warrior. Thanx ED.....U never disapoint.

I am loving this IPA EdWort, absolutely fantastic. The centennial really has a huge orange taste which makes it very palatable.

I used the same ratio of malts. I did cut back the bittering hop addition just a tad just to experiment. I ended up going for 62 IBU's, and my starting gravity was 1.062 making my GU:BU ratio 1, and I really am enjoying the level of balance, however it still has a slight lingering bitterness which is what I was going for. I'm starting to find myself not as much of a hop head as I was before.

I just stumbled upon this thread. The grain bill is very close to what I use for my house IPA, only difference is I use 2lb of munich and a full lb of the crystal 60. My hop schedule is very similar but I use Magnum for the 60 min and Citra for late additions. Then I dry hop with 1oz each of Citra and Simcoe. I'll have to try it with the centennial and warrior combo, sounds good. The malt profile is a perfect base for any IPA.

I just brewed this on Sunday, and I dry hopped right away in the primary. My thought was to then transfer it to secondary after 10 days without additional dry hopping. I just now read post #130 of this thread where EdWort mentions he ferments for 10 days to 2 weeks, THEN dry hops.

Any suggestions for fixing this? Should I just continue as I planned?

Dry hopping only imparts aroma, and while the young beer is in primary fermentation, it is pushing a lot of CO2 out of your fermenter...and your hop aroma will be pushed out along with it.

You will probably get some aroma with your method, but in order to get the full effect you will need to dry hop again when primary fermentation is done. Or you can wait until you make a second batch (you most certainly will want to) and dry hop the right way to compare.

Cheers and good luck.
