Cascadian Dark Ale (IPA)
 
Pours darker with a thicker head than the others, head dissipates quickly, citrus and fruity aromas with subtle sweet scent, definite IPA citrus notes, good hops, some roasted balance.

Recipe:

■ 22 lbs - Gambrinus organic 2-row
■ 2 lbs - Briess organic 60L caramel
■ 0.5 lbs - Briess organic roast
■ 1.5 lbs - Weyermann Carafa II
■ 0.5 lbs - Breiss organic chocolate malt

Hop Schedule (75 minute boil)

■ First wort hop with 1 oz. Centennial whole hops 9.3% a.a.
■ 60 min - 2 oz Summit pellets 18.1% a.a.
■ 15 min - 1 oz Amarillo whole hops 8.4% a.a.
■ 15 min - 1 oz Centennial whole hops 9.3% a.a
■ Flame out - 1 oz Amarillo whole hops 8.4% a.a.
■ Flame out - 1 oz Simcoe pellets 12.2% a.a.

Dryhopped one keg with 1.5 oz Amarillo whole hops (one ounce probably would have been sufficient).

Single infusion mash at 151F for 1 hour 15 minutes

Great recipe and Brew! :mug:

Did you use the Carafa II Special (dehusked)?

Love the hops you selected. Cool that you used mostly organic ingredients, makes me think of Hopworks' organic Secession CDA.

Hi,

Yes, de-husked..... http://www.rebelbrewer.com/shoppingc...-ounce%29.html

I just personally prefer whole hops; I am looking into growing more varieties.



Cheers :mug:

0.5 lbs - Briess organic roast
 
Is this ingredient roasted barley?

Just reviewing the recipe, it seems like a crapton of dark malts for a CDA. So that's cool that even with so much it's still balanced nicely.

Yes, it is... you do not need to go organic I did because I was preparing to enter this in a local homebrew organic competition....

It is really nice.... You are right it is very balanced; I didn't know what to expect but I have made it now multiple times both organic and non-organic and it is always a winner. :mug:
