Default All-Grain - Eruption IPA (AG) (Gold-medal winner, 3rd-place BOS))

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: US-05 Rehydrated
Yeast Starter: No
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 59.7
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 8.2
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 weeks @ 64 F
Tasting Notes: Big grapefruit nose and citrus flavor from American hops. Easy to drink.

This is my first IPA recipe, which recently won a gold in the IPA category and a third-place Best of Show at the Olde Hickory Pro Am in North Carolina. It also won a bronze in the Colonial Cup in Charleston, S.C.

Definitely the best beer I've brewed thus far. My efficiency was only about 63% on this one, so my OG was 1.056. But I loved it so much I'm going to keep it the same. Adjust your grain bill accordingly.

Cheers!

Recipe: Eruption IPA
Style: American IPA
TYPE: All Grain


Ingredients:
------------
10 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US 84.0 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz Munich Malt - 10L 12.0 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L 4.0 %
0.75 oz Amarillo Gold [9.30 %] - First Wort 27.4 IBUs
0.50 oz Simcoe [14.60 %] 60.0 min 23.7 IBUs
1.00 Items Whirlfloc Tablet 10.0 mins
0.50 oz Simcoe [14.60 %] 10.0 min 8.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.30 %] 5.0 min 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Simcoe [14.60 %] 0 min 0.0 IBUs
1.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) Yeast
2.00 oz Amarillo Gold [9.30 %] - Dry Hop 7 days

Single infusion mash at 152 F. I batch sparge. The Simcoe were leaf hops for this particular batch because it's all I could find, so adjust amounts as necessary if you use pellets. Rehydrate yeast, pitch in mid-60s and maintain temp for 3 weeks in primary. Rack to bottling bucket or keg, carbonate to 2.5 vol. CO2. (I used 4.2 oz. corn sugar for 5 gallons). Drink. Enjoy!

Woops, forgot to include that. I think it was 152 but I would have to check my notes, which are at home.
