Brewed this last night! Used the extract recipe, but added 1.5# Pils 2-row to make it a mini-mash as a step towards all-grain! Had a few bugs to work out, but came in at 1.072.
Used Centennial hops I grew this summer!
Came out nice & black, but is bubbling slowly 12 hours later.
Can't wait to taste this one! Thanks!

I finally got around to transferring this and dry hopping it today. My og was 1.068 and it finished a little high @ 1.017. Beersmith says that's an abv 6.66. How creepy is that considering the name?

Update: This turned out very good. The hop bitterness compliments the roasty flavor nicely. I'm normally not a big fan of IPA's but after this and a few others I've been brewing lately I'm slowly moving over to the darkside.

This is my project for this weekend. However, I'm going to brew it with Warrior at 60 minutes... Should be nice and perfect by mid-late April. Will be my drink of choice at a local BBQ Competition. Can't wait!!!!

Is there a big difference between carafa II and III?

Yes the 3 is around 100 lovibond darker than the 2, and I'm sure tastes a little different. I prefer Belgian debittered black malt for this recipe at 550 L and no real astringency

For this recipe, I don't think so. I mean you could use some chocolate malt or black malt or mix of both, but you won't get the same taste. Carafa II Special Dehusked... it's sort of it's own thing.

Thanks for the recipe! I made a 6 gal batch of the extract version made a couple slight changes due to supplies I already had on hand and it was fantastic. I added 1lb of extract and used Willamette as the bittering hop with 3 additions of Amarillo and dry hopped with Amarillo. Also added some flaked oats. To me it tastes similar to Heavy Seas Black Cannon which is just what I was looking for.

Do you think that transform this stout IPA in a Red IPA are correct? (near a irish red ale; IPA)
Thanks for your advice!

i will put only a little quantity Carafa II Special and special roast to make a red ale with it.
