I want to brew this soon, but only have a lot of pellets. How would that affect the hopping and schedule.

Thanks,

Thanks,
It shouldn't affect it too much. You might reduce the quantities a little, but honestly, I wouldn't bother, and just expect it to be a little more bitter than with loose hops.

Hey,

I tried my first BIPA at the pub a couple of weeks ago and it was awesome. This is the first BIPA recipe I came across on the site so I'm going to give it a shot...

I haven't got victory malt in easy supply, but I do have a few other ingredients spare, should I:

leave it out?
substitute oz for oz with more crystal?
substitute oz for oz with amber?
substitute in a different proportion?

Thanks in advance for the tips!

I think you could sub crystal or amber, or both. I wouldn't sub oz for oz for crystal though, it might end up too sweet. If you have some marris otter you could replace some 2-row with MO and that would give a closer flavor.

Try either oz for oz with amber, or adding 6-8oz crystal.

Thanks, I was planning on using Maris Otter anyway since that's what I have available, had overlooked that it would be different from two row. I'll probably go with a small bit of amber then, not too much because I seem to be putting it in everything I brew at the minute!

Brewing got postponed this evening but I'm sure it won't be long!

Looks good! I just brewed my first black ipa this past weekend. Similar ibu and sg. I'm like you though, and want some roastiness in it, not just color, so instead of mixing dark malts and confusing myself, I just used 1# of debittered black malt w .5# of caramunich 60 and 1# of carapils. Also used Nugget, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We'll see how it turns out, but what are your thoughts on my grain choice, specifically the 1# of debittered black?

Sounds like a good idea, the MO will give you a similar-ish flavor as 2-row + victory.

I don't personally have any experience with debittered black malt, so I can't comment on that, but I've recently stopped using carapils in most of my beers, and using malted wheat instead for head added head retention/body. There's a lot of discussion about carapils on this site and why a lot of people consider it unnecessary.
