Just thought I'd follow up on the outcome of this beer. I've let family/friends and friends of friends try this beer and I keep getting the same response, "If this was on store shelves I'd buy this over the other stuff". I even had a guy tell me he wants to learn to brew beer just so he can make this! He said this is his 2nd favorite IPA, with his first being Stone IPA. This gives me hope in my beer making abilities, since I am no where near a pro but I can still develop an awesome IPA! I will definitely continue to come up with different IPA's and post them here for you guys to try.

HOPS (All Pellets)
1oz Cascade @60min
.5oz Cascade/Citra/Galaxy @15min
.5oz Cascade/Citra/Galaxy @5min
1oz Cascade/Citra/Galaxy (Dryhop for 6 days after fermentation complete)

Here is my stupid question. In adding the hops is it 0.5 oz each of Cascade, Citra and Galaxy or is it 0.5 oz total of the three or is it 0.5 oz of any of the 3
Thanks

Sorry about the confusion. Hopefully this helps clarify:

Total hops (3 ounces Cascade, 2 ounces Citra, 2 ounces Galaxy)

1 ounce Cascade @60min
1/2 ounce each of Cascade, Citra and Galaxy @15min
1/2 ounce each of Cascade, Citra and Galaxy @5min
1 ounce each of Cascade, Citra and Galaxy (Dryhop for 6 days after fermentation complete)

Enjoy!

Thanks, I brewed a batch of this yesterday and now have in the fermenter. The OG came in dead on at 1.061 but the IBU that Beersmith calculated is something like 57 even without adding the dry hops. You don't list the alphas for the hops you used. Did you calculate with the actuall alphas on your hop package or just go with the usual for that hop strain, Mine were Cascade 7.1%, Citra 12.5% and Galaxy 15.0%.
Thanks
Mike

I have attached a picture which displays the Alpha numbers. Its hard to read from this picture but Citra is 12.5, Galaxy is 15 and Cascade is 6.4. Also, dry hopping will not add any IBU's or bitterness to the beer, just aroma and flavor. Hope this helps and let me know what you think about it when you taste it!

This looks pretty good, and I'm feeling an IPA for my next batch, *wink wink nudge nudge*

Pretty new to homebrew and this is my fifth batch. I wanted to find a decently simple IPA recipe and I like the way this looked, OG is spot on at 1.061, can't wait to see how it turns out!

So I plan on brewing this in the next few days. Maybe Monday or Wednesday of this next week. Anyway, I wanted to run a partial mash version by you guys to see what you think. My efficiency is generally 65-68%, but I recently acquired a second 5 gallon kettle, so I could conceivably get 70-72%. I'm also bittering with Columbus, because I happen to have a 1/2 oz and that fits the IBU's needed. The pound of caramel malt 60 is to try and hit the color shown in the picture, plus maybe a little bit of malty backbone, not too much.


5 gallons. OG = 1.060
IBU = 58

2.5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 27.6 %
0.5 lbs Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (60.0 SRM) Grain 5.5 %
0.5 lbs Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 5.5%
4.0 oz Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 2.6 %
3 lbs 4.8 oz LME Golden Light (Briess) (4.0 SRM) Extract 34.6 %
0.50 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [14.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 16.9 IBUs
2 lbs Light Dry Extract [Boil for 15 min](8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 20.9 %
0.50 oz Cascade [7.10 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 4.3 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [12.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 7.5 IBUs
0.50 oz Galaxy [15.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 9.0 IBUs
0.50 oz Cascade [7.10 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 1.7 IBUs
0.50 oz Citra [12.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 3.0 IBUs
0.50 oz Galaxy [15.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 3.6 IBUs
1.0 pkg California Ale (White Labs #WLP001) [35.49 ml] Yeast w/ starter
1.00 oz Cascade [7.10 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days Hop 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Citra [12.50 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days Hop 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Galaxy [15.00 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days Hop 0.0 IBUs

Please tell me what you think
