I'm planning on a double batch ~10 gallons for Home Brewer day (5/4). Any final verdict on using original recipe (Nugget for bittering and WLP001) vs using warrior and another yeast?

This beer gets better with age. It gets less grapefruit and more balanced every day. Unfortunetly this keg will kick soon. May have to tinker with this one to make it my own. Next time I'm using a different yeast.
My next batch based on this recipe I'm going to use Conan yeast to see how that turns out.

I recommend against changing the gravity on this one. Its balance and flavor work really well where they are at and I agree its a very borderline "imperial IPA."

I've had very good luck so far making it as a 6 gallon recipe and doing 100% of the dry hopping in the fermenting bucket, and then crashing on Day 12. I then rack off of the sludge and got close to commercial levels of clarity (well, the commercial brewers who aren't flat-out filtering to sterile levels) in the 8 days it took to carbonate.

Well, I'll let you know how my batch comes out. Going for a 5 gal batch, and bumped the gravity to 1.075. Pretty small increase, so I hope it keeps things in balance.

How long did you guys find it took for this beer to ferment for? I'm coming up on 7 days, and I'm going to pull a hydro sample. Per the podcast, they say it can be anywhere from 6-8 days before they rack and dryhop. I used San Diego super yeast from white labs, which is supposed to be a fast fermenting yeast. My ferm started within 2 hrs of pitching

I left mine in primary for 12 days (probably longer than I had to) and transferred to my corny keg for dry hopping/secondary. When I transferred my gravity reading was 1.010 and had been for about 4 days. Be patient with this beer. After the 12 days of dry hopping I couldn't wait to get it carbed up so I could drink it, and at first I was a little disappointed. It was good but nothing special. It's been kegged for about 2 weeks now, and it tastes like a completely different beer than it did 10 days ago. It's hitting it's sweet spot, and it's awesome.

I went 22 days in the conical then racked to carboys for dry hopping. I was at 1.014. It fermented at about 62 degrees.

Just brewed this yesterday, had to use 8oz corn sugar to hit the OG. My efficiency is a little low.
Wort smelled delicious as a i racked to the FV. Great brew that ive been trying to get my hands on but it seems this is a close clone so 5gal will suffice!

Cheers vegan thx for another sick DIPA recipe. Brewing your updated Heady recipe on sunday!

I brewed this on 3/24 and stuck to the recipe with the exception of of using wyeast 1056. Kept in primary for 21 days and racked to a keg for dry hopping. Got down to 1.008. Close to 8% ABV. It turned out awesome. The balance between the hops and malt is perfect and goes down SMOOTH. If you can find citra hops I highly encourage you to try this one out. Think of it as a double Zombie Dust.
