----------------------------
Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge
Step Time Name Description Step Temp
60 min Mash In Add 3.95 gal of water at 162.6 F 151.0 F

Nottingham was added dry.

Normally I would have given this beer a lot more time (I'd recommend 7-10 in primary, 1-2 weeks in secondary and a 7 day dryhop), but I was pushing it through for a party I had on 8/30. Much to my surprise, the BMC drinkers in attendance kept going back to this beer over the Blonde Ale that I also had on tap.

Don't be afraid of all the Chinook. Only 1 oz of it is used for bittering, and the rest of the additions actually contribute to what turned out to be an intense, but fantastic hop flavor. I added 1 oz of Amarillo with the Chinook when I dry hopped to get a bit of the floral/citrus in the nose, and it worked very well.

Mashing at 151 helps to dry out this beer and contribute to a clean, crisp finish that suits the style very well compared to to other IPA's that I've done between 152-155.

This is the best sub-100 IBU IPA that I've made yet.

How was the Chinook? Citrusy or something else. I used it recently and feel like it didn't have a lot of the citrus taste to it.

To me, Chinook is spicy and has hints of piney/floral. This is a good beer. I'll be sad when the keg is gone.

I think I'll make this up as my test batch for the new keggles. Mabye even a full 10G. I have a buttload of Chinooks in the freezer waiting for a beer.

Nice recipe - going to try it now.

Glad to hear the chinook comes through as piney - I recently had some Rogue Yellow Snow IPA which I thought had that flavour (others describe it as grapefruit?) and bought the chinook just to try and get that flavour.

I might replace the 60 minute addition with Magnum - think that would affect much?

That should be just fine. Magnum is really quite neutral as far as flavor and aroma contributions.

Checking back in with comments on the beer. It turned out fabulous, best brew I think we've made.

The Chinook is definitely an excellent choice for a finishing hop if you want a big IPA - in your face, and a different from other choices out there.

I followed the 'spirit' of your recipe, with some small changes. Mind if I post it here so people can see something a bit different?

First off great recipe, This was a very good hoppy beer. I changed one thing with the recipe, I dry hopped with columbus and chinook. Thanks again for posting this. The chinook is very strong but not overwhelming, I loved it.
