IIPA - Option 2
 
Hey everyone, first time posting a recipe. Im working on re-working a IIPA recipe that I have been brewing for a few years. The current recipe is a bit too dark for my liking and too sweet for a IIPA. I love it, but i think I am going to categorize it as a strong ale.

The recipe listed below is my attempt at getting a cleaner, hoppier option. I feel pretty comfortable with most of the malt bill, its the hops that I am unsure of and I am looking for feedback. Second, I am having a difficult time getting the final gravity to be lower than 1.020 - I think I would like it to be closer to 1.015. What does everyone think?

Loose the carapils, you are just adding more body.
mash low, like 148-150° for a drier beer. Maybe change 10% of your 2row to table sugar. Those changes will really drop your fg and give you less thickness/mouthfeel.

Cool, ill try that out on Monday when i brew this. How about the hop bill?

Just my opinion, but I don't think you will get much from your 30 and 25 min additions. Do a 60 then split your remaining boil hops to 15, 10, 5 and flameout for more hop aroma
