Yes increased sparge water lowers my SRM for sure. I shoot for an SRM of 7-8 usually. If u want 9 then just increase your mash water.

Have you tried this with late hopping/hopstand techniques? Just wondering, as this recipe seems different than many folks' recipes, which are only bittering + massive late hopping. I've had FP and it's a killer beer, so I didn't know if you'd tried this method or not.

Thanks.

I've tried FWH as well as some late hopping for aroma. I found that if I dry hop for 2 weeks instead of 1 then my aroma drastically increases.

I'm going to brew today, and am considering this hopping schedule. The goal is to lower the bitterness just a bit and to accentuate hop flavors. Any thoughts? The 30 minute post-boil is a 30 minute hopstand. Thanks for looking.

From Hopville; sorry about any formatting problems.

FP is one of my all time favorite beers bar none. Love it.

Fella's please humor me a little here.... I'm new. I did a couple of all grain brews back in the 90's when HB'ing was very much a new thing and not much internet.

I'm getting back into this right now and while eventually I'm sure I'll go back to AG for now I want to try a couple of extract brews. BUT.....I really want to try this recipe.

Would anyone please hazard a guess as to the extracts I would use to brew this?

I know I'm a newb and this probably sounds ridiculous but please help if you feel so inclined.

Thanks all and btw, this forum is top notch. Home brewing has come a very very long way from when I did it last.

All the best from NEO

After 7 days with US-05, I'm at 1.012 from 1.066. Looks good.

Only used about 4.5 oz of Honey Malt; I'm getting a honey and tropical hops aroma, but not too much honey flavor. We'll see in 3 or 4 weeks after the dry hop and bottle.

EDIT: Well, I may have jumped the gun. I dry hopped, and now I've been seeing a bit of airlock activity every 15-30 seconds. Nothing big, but it appears that the fermentation didn't quite finish. A little frustrating, as I thought it tasted pretty dry at 1.012. If it goes further, I'm wonder if it might get a bit too bitter.

Let me know how this goes. I'm also looking to make a version with all late hop additions @20 mins or less.

dont worry about the slight increase in activity. its pretty normal after you've roused the yeast in transfering to a secondary fermenter. the hops (especially pellets) also provide millions of nucleation sites for CO2 bubbles- that could also account for your airlock activity too. your fg will also likely remain at 1.012, so no worries!

I tried this in corning, NY this past weekend and was blown away. Just an extremely great summer IPA. I caught the honey malt and tons of citrus-based late-hopping without a hint of astringent bitterness. I'm definitely going to be brewing this soon.

Ithaca Brewing is now on my list of breweries to visit.
