I ordered the ingredients for the extract recipe today. Pretty excited to give it a try.
I'm getting 2oz of warrior since you can only order in 1oz increments. I'm thinking about using it all instead of just the 1.25oz of warrior the recipe calls for for bittering, would that be too over the top? I want this sucker to be hoppy. Same question for dry hopping Simcoe. Recipe only calls for 0.5oz but I'm going to have 1oz left over and am considering dry hopping with the full ounce.
One of the first batches I ever did was an IPA kit from the LHBS and it was not hoppy at all, so I want to make sure I get some hop-tastic action this time, but I don't want to go too outside the boundaries of this proven recipe so if anyone has any input on those increased hop amounts I am thinking about I would appreciate it.
Also, Northern Brewer has Simcoe pellets right now FWIW.
Thanks for the recipe, Yooper. Considering all the positive reviews in this thread, I am pretty psyched to try it out and I will be sure to come back and post how it turned out. I can almost taste it in my mouth already. If it turns out half as good as people say it does, I can see this one becoming a permanent fixture in my keezer, because I love me some 60min.
