I mashed at 152.2, but it had dropped to 148.2 after one hour. Mine finished at 1.012.

Yooper, does this recipe have less noticeable hops flavor/aroma? I bottled last weekend and it smelled and tasted great, but it didn't have that massive IPA hops punch I'm used to. Even 3 oz of dry hops for 8 days barely gave it much aroma.

I didn't save the package, but they were from Austin Homebrew, so I'm sure there pretty fresh. They smelled great when opened. Maybe I'm just not used to the aroma of these hops.

So after three weeks in the bottle this has become really good. It's different than other IPA's I drink, perhaps because of all the crystal. Glad I made it. Thanks again Yoop!

I brewed this up today! All late addition extract. I've been having some good success lately doing extract brews. I scaled back the bittering addition to .8oz chinook. Any idea of how much these late extract additions effect IBU's versus all-grain? I think I've been coming out just a bit too bitter.

We had 3 inches of rain here over the last few days and over an inch today. I couldn't help but think my yard looked like a Lakefront as I brewed this up. Sometimes the brewgods just smile down on you! I'll keep you updated on the progress. Cheers guys!

Gang - If I was to do this as a full boil extract or partial mash how much LME would I need? Do all late addtion? I would keep same hop addtions since I'm doing full boil correct? Thanks!

I brewed this 9 days ago and just checked the gravity, it's down to 1013. Of course I had to try it and it is already fantastic. It is already clear, citrusy and fruity and should turn out great, I can't wait to dry hop it.

My last keg of this just kicked two nights ago. This really is one of my favorites, and I'm going to brew it again ASAP!

Would this recipe benefit by substituting Maris Otter for the pale ale malt?

I don't know about "benefit", but I can say that I love some MO in IPA's. It will be different but I'm sure equally good.

On another note this beer is REALLY tasty! I had the SWMBO try it the other night and told her it was the "most delicious grapefruit hop juice ever made!" She agreed and asked, "who makes this?" Ha!

My Chinook and Cascade rhizomes just went into the ground so a true replica is in order this fall. Nice recipe. Brew this beer!
