I opened the first bottle of this on Friday after just a week of carbing in the bottle and 3 days in the frige and wow! It already had great carbonation to it as well as a great aroma, but I pulled a rookie mistake while brewing and squeezed the grain bag, so now it tastes like the grains at the end of a drink, otherwise tastes great. I hope these flavors will mellow out with some time, but I want to brew this again correctly.

Epiiiiic!

Glad to see my first recipe getting some good response! Currently in a holding pattern on getting Version 2.0 going (full-time school/work, etc.), but the numbers look good on Beer Alchemy...

Gotta say the Warrior and Ahtanum hops worked well as replacements for the aroma/dry hopping additions. The aroma is amazing, and if age will mellow those damn tannons due to the rookie mistake, this should be solid. Keep me posted on Version 2.0, because this will be brewed again, and it will be done with the Warrior Ahtanum combo due to how good those worked out.

Just caught up with this, and at this rate, I might swap in the Warrior/Ahtanum in addition to the original hop schedule...time to fire up Beer Alchemy again...!!

Yeah, I was messing around with this on Beersmith and I think I might try something a little heavier on the hops and upped on the alcohol for winter. The warrior/ahtanum gives a great aroma, and hopefully after a month of aging, that damn grain taste from squeezing the back will have subsided more.

Here's what I've worked out so far--reduced it to 91 IBU's, so it's still got some potent hoppy-ness without being overpowering:

US Chinook 13.0 % 1.00 oz 28.3 Bagged Pellet Hops 60 Min From End

US Warrior 15.5 % 1.00 oz 30.9 Bagged Pellet Hops 60 Min From End

US Ahtanum 6.0 % 1.00 oz 10.0 Bagged Pellet Hops 30 Min From End

US Simcoe 12.0 % 0.50 oz 7.9 Bagged Pellet Hops 20 Min From End

US Amarillo 8.5 % 0.50 oz 4.6 Bagged Pellet Hops 15 Min From End

US Simcoe 12.0 % 0.50 oz 4.7 Bagged Pellet Hops 10 Min From End

US Ahtanum 6.0 % 0.50 oz 1.3 Bagged Pellet Hops 5 Min From End

US Amarillo 8.5 % 1.00 oz 0.0 Bagged Pellet Hops Dry-Hopped

US Simcoe 12.0 % 1.00 oz 0.0 Bagged Pellet Hops Dry-Hopped

Can't wait for LHBS to get some Simcoe in so I can get this one going!

SO!

A boatload of tweaks later, here's what I finally came up with. Basically turns into a 60-minute IIPA using 4 different hop varieties!

OG: 1.083
FG: 1.018
ABV: 8.7% (yarr!)
IBU: 96.0

60 minute boil, grains soaked for 30 minutes @ 155F:

Crystal 40L--1.5 lb.
US 2-row--1.5 lb.
Pilsen Extract--9 lb.

Warrior (15.5%)--2 oz. @ 60 min.
Simcoe (12%)--1/2 oz. @ 20 min.
Ahtanum (5.2%)--1 oz. @ 15 min.
Amarillo (8.5%)--1/2 oz. @ 15 min.
Simcoe--1/2 oz. @ 10 min.
Ahtanum--1/2 oz. @ 5 min.

Give it 2 weeks at 65-70F in primary at this point, inoculating with WLP001 & a good yeast nutrient. It's up to personal preference to use 2 vials or just a huge starter...also debating whether or not to try WL's San Diego Super strain.

At 2 weeks:
1 oz. each Amarillo & Simcoe for 7 days, keeping it on primary (again, personal preference, but I have never used a secondary). Bottle/keg normally, age for 2+ weeks.

Will be waiting till the new year to start this one (gotta get the Xmas brew figured out!), but this is gonna be interesting.

i used the original recipe as the start for my first IPA. had to swap citra for the simcoe, but i am loving this brew! it is everything i love about IPA. The hops are in your face at first, but they don't kill your palate like stone's ruination. i think the citra added a pronounced grapefruit note. i will definitely brew many variations of this going forward.

I love chinook at 30 minutes. I think that's the perfect spot for 'em... unless I'm doing my AB clone, of course
