Default All-Grain - Damn the Man Black IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP001
Yeast Starter: Yes (or pitch 2 vials)
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.057
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 80
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 31 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 weeks @ 68*
Tasting Notes: Delicious! Duh.

This is a recipe that I've been working on all year. I'm currently fermenting my 4th batch, and I think I've got it down. In my opinion, Black IPAs should have enough dark malt flavor to justify their color (not using only Carafa III), more than just a hint, not overpowering but not completely absent either. I use 6oz chocolate malt to achieve this, but use however much to fit your tastes (a little less would be good, but I probably wouldn't add any more).

The cascade/willamette combo gives a nice, citrusy nose, and the centennial/cascade combo is a tasty, spicy combo for smooth bittering. My calculators always put this in the 75-80 IBU range but the centennial hops providing the main bittering don't seem to smack you the way a lot of high-IBU IPAs do. This gives you a whole lot of hop flavor, but without the puckering. I use all lose whole hops.

The chocolate malt comes through moderately but doesn't dominate.

I shoot for 5.5gal in the fermenter cuz the dry hops are going to soak up a good chunk of of the batch. I also use a potato masher to squeeze out as much hop juice as possible when pouring into the fermenter.

For extract, replace the 2-row with 6lbs LDME and steep the rest.

Mash: 60 min @ 152 (assuming 70% efficiency)

10lbs 2-row
12oz victory
12oz crystal 60L
6oz carafa III
6oz chocolate

Boil:

1oz centennial (7.8% AA) 60 min
1oz centennial 30 min
1oz centennial 20 min
1oz cascade (7% AA) 15 min
1oz cascade flameout
1oz willamette (4.5% AA)flameout
1oz cascade dry hop (7 days)
1oz willamette dry hop (7 days)

Please let me know how it turns out if you give it a try!

I like it! Especially the hop schedule. But... Can you steep victory? I thought it was Partial Mash only.

My first BIPA will get its first taste test on Christmas. I am more excited about this brew than I have been in a long time.

Hmm, doing a search it looks like it can contribute a starch haze if steeped, but with a really dark beer I'm not sure how much this would affect the appearance. Steeping will still contribute some flavor it seems. Could always leave it out and up the crystal though, good catch.

I like the looks of the grain bill. Might have to do something like this sometime soon. Thanks for the idea.

so i found this awesome recipe and am gonna brew this weekend. i prefer my black IPAs to only get the color and head color from the dark malt without any of the flavor (i know we disagree, just my taste). so i replaced the chocolate malt with munich and was forced to use mt. hood in the dry hop because of availability at my homebrew store. i also picked up pellets for the boil but am gonna use flower to dry hop in a bag.

will be sure to repost once it comes out of the secondary. thanks again.

Awesome, I'm a big fan of being creative with recipes, so go with your taste. I'm thinking about using chinook as the 60 min addition next time I brew this to see how it tastes with a little more "bite."
