Very bitter IPA with a strong malt backbone. Not a perfect clone, but gets the idea.
I emailed Joe from Short's, asking him to help me with this recipe. Of course, Huma Lupa Licious is his baby, and I was sure he wasn't going to give me any specifics. But, this is what he did share in his reply:
Hey Todd. I'm not sure if the home brew supply shops have enough hops available for purchase. But here goes. We shoot for a copper to light amber colored wort about 16.8 plato 4 to 5 different malts. Our Huma specs out at 125 IBU's (4 varieties). There are 4 kettle additions 60 min, 30 min, 10 min and flame out plus one massive dry hop. we dry hop at a rate of 1lb./31 gal. thats roughly equal to the first two kettle additions. Our total hops for huma average 3 lbs. per barrel (31 gal.). Good luck!
Armed with this info, I put this recipe together. I brewed it about a month ago, and just poured the first pint from the keg last night. It's pretty nice, if you're a hop head like me. In fact, it might be the best brew I've made yet - if only because my process has been getting better with each batch. It didn't hurt that for inspiration, I had a keg of Short's Huma in the kegerator while formulating and brewing this batch. Grain Bill:
