Default CWS 5400 Imperial IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP007
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.096
Final Gravity: 1.014

This is one of my favorites. The name is a play on Dogfish's 90 Minute IPA. I broke mine down into seconds, because every second counts! The CWS represents the hops used.

2 lbs. Amber malt (35-L)*
1 lb. CaraPils malt, 2-row (5.9-L)

* For the Amber malt, roast 2 lbs. of the American 2-row at 225oF for 30 mins., stir, then increase heat to 300oF and roast until grain reaches a light buff color, ~30 mins. to 1 hr. Keep oven door slight ajar during roasting.
