Default All-Grain - Dawn of the Dead Ale Belgian IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: 1214 Belgian Ale
Yeast Starter: Harvested jar
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.081
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 113
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 8HCU
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 15 days @ 68
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 8 days @ 60
Tasting Notes: Superb. Very hoppy with a nice yeast back.

12# pale Malt
1# Victory
.5# Belgian Aromatic
1# carapils

Mash @ 152 for 90 mins.

1oz Summit (18.1% AA) @ 90min
2oz Armarillo (9.3% AA) @ 17 min
2oz East Kent Goldings (5% AA) Dry hop

This is definitley one of my favorite beers for all those who love IPA's. It comes in at about 8% and it's wonderful. It's got a blast of aggressive bitterness that slowly fades to a soft fruity belgian yeast background. The malt is there but in the background like an IPA should be in my opinion. To do again i would mash at 153 for 60 mins instead of the hour to try and get a little more malt in there but the hops and the complexity of this brew are something to be savored.

Turned out pretty good. When I brew it again I am going to add more aroma hops. I still have a tiny bit left!

Yea i was hoping to still capture some of the belgian yeast aroma but next time i think i'll just cover it in hops and see what comes out!

Yeah, I fermented at too low a temp to get the yeast esters. How is life in AK?

Im am going to be giving this brew a shot in the near future(will be my fifth AG batch) any suggestions for a newb outside of those you guys have already mentioned. The more specific the better! Thanks.

Donthoseme - Have you tried Midnight Sun's Mayhem? Sounds similar (double IPA with belgian yeast)...would be interested how you think this compares.

I am doing an IPA of some sort next and the belgian yeast thing sounds like a pretty tasty little twist on it.

I made my first BIAB with this recipe yesterday. I did a half batch and everything went well for the most part. I pitched onto a Wyeast 1214 yeast cake from a dubbel I just made.

The only problem was I ended up with too much pre-boil wort (4.5 gallons), so I boiled it down to 2.9 gallons instead of 2.5. It took 90 minutes to get there, and by that time I just decided to call it good and be happy that I'll get about 6 more bottles with the extra .4 gal. OG came out at 1.065, about 5 points lower than brewing calculators predicted. I know this is way lower than the 1.081 the recipe called for, but I'm sure it will be good anyways.

I also put the goldings in the boil for 2 min. I might dry hop with something really citrus like cascade.
