I couldn't help but order the ingredients the second I saw this one. I had some problems when I saw that a few people were talking about how the OG, IBU's, and ABV were not working out for the recipe that was originally posted. I found though, that they match up pretty well if you change your pre-boil to 3.9 gallons then change it from an extract to a partial mash in beersmith. I am not really sure that spraging your specialty grains will really affect your OG all that much. I tried to look around on other threads about it, but there was no real answer. I think the best solution would be to bump the LME up to 9#. Unfortunately I only ordered 8#, and because I am stationed in japan and it takes forever for me to get supplies via the internet I think that I will just try and sparge the caramel/crystal and see what happens. What do you guys think? I mean worst that will happen my OG will drop to 1.075 from 1.079, my ABV will go from 8.1% to 7.7%, and my IBU's will shoot from 120.2 to 125.1.

I brewed this yesterday, i did a 10 gallon batch and used 10 pounds of pilsen light DME, 7 pounds of golden light DME and 2 pounds carmal/crystal grain. I used all the same hops except instead of the willimettes i went with cascade. My OG was 1.072 which was not a surprising to me because when i put it in my demijohn it was around the 11 gallon mark so that would account for my OG being a little lower. Still i am excited to see how this comes out. The hops smelled soo good!

Update: This came out amazing. Needs a full month to carb well, but I am assuming that it is because of the high og.

Default Very nice!


Brewed this recently. Primary fermenter with the dry hops for 2 weeks, then racked to a secondary. Kegged after another 10 days. OG 1.075ish and FG 1.012. ~7% ABV. Excellent beer. Definitely recommend others brewing this!

Thanks for the recipe!

just racked this over to Keg/secondary and dry hopped with cascade and chinook. This smells extremely fruity. Can't wait to try in a couple weeks!!

I'm going to make this as my first IPA as I love insanely hoppy delicious beer! A few questions though: after reading the thread, I'm still a bit confused as to the hop additions... Would this be correct?
As water is heating - 0.5oz Warrior
@ 60 min left in boil - 1oz Warrior, 1oz Chinook
@ 45 min left in boil - 1oz Chinook, 0.5oz Warrior
@ 30 min left in boil - 1oz Centennial
@ 10 min left in boil - 0.5oz Centennial, 1oz Williamette
Dry hop for 13 days - 0.5oz Centennial, 1oz Williamette

Also, did you use pellet or whole hops?

Also, did you use pellet or whole hops?
0.50 oz Warrior [15.00%] (60 min) (First Wort Hop) Hops 14.5 IBU
1.00 ozWarrior [15.00%] (60 min) Hops 29.1 IBU
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00%] (60 min) Hops 25.2 IBU
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00%] (45 min) Hops 23.1 IBU
0.50 oz Warrior [15.00%] (45 min) Hops 13.3 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00%] (30 min) Hops 14.9 IBU
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (10 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops

0.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (Dry Hop 13days) Hops
1.00 oz Williamette [5.50%] (Dry Hop 13days) Hops

I would def use pellet hops except for dry hopping. I used mostly whole hops for this myself and it was the most trub i have ever seen!!! Ended up being a 4 gallon batch!! Bout to try mine in about 2 more weeks. Can't wait for this one!!

Started this tonight! I'm really excited for it, however, did anyone else experience massive foaming after putting the wort in the fermenter? I'm still wondering if there was extra sanitizer or what the heck happened!?

There was so much foam that it came right out of the fermenter and i had to scoop a bunch out, and the wort was sitting a little below the normal 5gallon marker!

It was so foamy I couldn't read my hydrometer!

Anyone else get this?
