Default All-Grain - Deaf Turtle (Blind Pig clone)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP001
Yeast Starter: 2000
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.066
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 75
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 5.5
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Tasting Notes: I have not done a side by side comparison yet but on it's own this a mighty fine beer

I made this beer and another APA out of the same mash, I based the grain bill on this beer though. Because of this, my efficiency went off the charts and I over shot the OG by 6 points and had a extra 2 gallons to go with it but I certainly like the results.

Vinny at Russian River use to brew the Blind Pig IPA when he worked at the Blind Pig brewery in San Diego. He has changed the recipe a bit to incorporate Simcoe and Amarillo hops and man is it good.

The grain bill I used was

88% 2-row
5% Cara-pils
3.5% C40
3.5% Wheat Malt

Here is the recipe based on 75% efficiency
Also, Russian River lists the OG at 1.060 so you could shoot for that to be closer to the real thing, I like this as is.

Recipe looks good! How does it look/taste/smell? Any pics?

How does it compare to Blind Pig?

I recently brewed an IPA with a different but similar grain bill. The hop bill was all Simcoe, Centennial and Amarillo.

It's in the primary right now and already smells great. I am planning to dry hop it this weekend too. I can't wait to taste it.

This is my best bitter to date (APA, IPA and IIPAs included). Let's just put it this way, When I took the frist sip, I thought to myself, I will be making another batch of this

The smell is amazing and the taste is even better.

I don't have a Blind Pig now and they don't sell them in my city even though I am 4 hours from Russian River but from my memory, it is pretty darn close, but like I said, my gravity is a few points higher, on the other hand, I knew this going into the boil and adjusted the hops to account for the higher gravity.

No Blind Pig in Central Cali? That sucks! There is plenty of it here in So Cal...

Well, that's the beauty of brewing your own, if you can get it locally, you can always try to clone it.

Glad to hear your brew came out great.

The irony is that they are distributed by Stone, which is based in San Diego, so living close to RR is actually a disadvantage.

But do yourself a favor and try their standard IPA, only on tap, doesn't really have a name. Yummy and you can pound that stuff.

I have had their standard ipa too, mighty tasty for sure. This beer is my favorite homebrew so far. I had a friend text me today to say he had been thinking about my blind pig clone all day because he loved it and he only drinks ipas and iipas. Put a tear in my eye

What did your FG gravity end up being? My efficiency was a little low for some reason on this brew and I got a lower OG (OG 1.052). After just a week in the primary I took a gravity reading and it's already at 1.019. I'm a little worried that it is going to finish to low and not have enough maltiness for the large amount of IBU's.

I'm thinking I should rack now to the secondary and dry hop for the next 10 days and then rack to my keg. Any thoughts and advice would be great.

Also did you use gelatin on this brew? Thanks for the recipe. Gravity reading tasted great nice hops aroma and bitterness really looking forward to this one.

EDIT: Took another reading and it was down to 1.010 racked it, dry hopped it and hopefully it won't finish to low.

oh no, 1.052? It sounds like you might have a really hoppy pale ale there. Mine went from 1.066 to 1.012, this was an overshoot on the gravity as I was shooting for 1.060 but it turned out mighty tasty.

beer is like movies, the good ones stay with you and bounce around in your head for a few days after.
