Just popped the lid off of the bucket to take an gravity reading and it's sitting at 1.020 after a week of it fermenting and it smells amazing and tastes even better. The hops are prominent but are very smooth to the finish, and the color is a nice golden amber. So far it's looking great.

Epiiiic.

Still tinkering with a possible updated version. Trying to get rid of the corn sugar all together in favor of stuff that actually provides flavor!

1.5lb Caramel 40L (bumped up from 20L--this puts the color right along with BJCP guidelines whereas before it was slightly below)
1.5lb US 2-row
9lb Pilsen Light LME

I bumped up the second Chinook addition to 40 minutes instead of 30; everything else stays as is. This version (according to Beer Alchemy) puts out 0.5% more ABV, so a final 8.5% with the extra 10 minutes of Chinook to (hopefully) cover any extra alcohol warmth. Also considering trying WLP090, but we'll wait & see on that.

Hoping to get this one up & bubbling soon...will post how it turns out!

I'm interested in seeing what happens when you bump up the grain bill and drop out the corn sugar. After this is bottled, would you be interested in trading a couple of bottles? I'd like to see the differences in using your hop and grill bill to the Ahtanum and Warrior hops I had to use for late addition boil and will have to use for dry hopping.

Will let you know, but FYI I just had to drop $1400 on car repairs today, so it might be a while before I brew this one up...grr.

That sucks, and I know the feeling, I finally got rid of my rolling bucket of bolts just last week. Just keep me posted and good luck. I'll be brewing an Imperial Nut Brown for trail number two of extract brewing this weekend while working on setting up the secondary frige as a cooling fermentation unit. If all goes well, a WPA is on deck for round 3 and all will be up for trading!

Well, it's holding strong at 1.020 after 2 weeks. We just racked it over to a secondary for dry hopping, but the hydrometer sample was extremely sweet. Is there anything other than bottle conditioning that we can do to drop the gravity to get rid of some of the sweetness?

It's pretty close to what my first batch did as well (think it was .017-ish?), but yes, bottle conditioning did mellow it out quite a bit.

Thanks for the help. I'm going to bottle it this weekend so we will find out if the sweetness has mellowed out a bit more before its sealed up for 3 weeks.

No worries! I'll post the final re-work when I figure it out, but I considered the fact that an IIPA should have more hop presence, so while messing with the recipe, I boosted the Chinook by 1oz. per addition...turned out close to 100 IBU's. Seriously tempted to try it...O_O

Just do it! It sounds on par with the bitterness of Hop Stoopid or Small Batch 471!

I just bottled mine last night and the FG was at 1.018. The sweetness had faded away, and I dry hopped for 9 days. It wasn't overly in your face hoppy, but it was smooth for just being a hydrometer sample. 3 more weeks and it should be ready to drink!
