Default All-Grain - My 2-time gold winning American IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: White Labs California ale
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: 2 vials
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.065
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 65
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7days @ 68f
Additional Fermentation: 7 days keg conditioned while force carbing
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14days @ 68f
Tasting Notes: not the hop bomb you normally expect from an american IPA, but damn it's tasty

Mash at 154 for 60min. I had 70%eff
American Rahr (2 row) Pale: 11.50lbs
American Briess Crystal 20 1.00lbs
American Briess Light Munich 0.75lbs
American Briess Carapils 0.75lbs
American Briess Torrified Wheat 0.25lbs

Chinook (Pellet) 1oz 30min
Cascade (Pellet) 1.5oz 30min
Williamette (Pellet) 0.5oz 15min
Cascade (Pellet) 1.5oz 15min
Williamette (Pellet) 1oz 5min
Cascade (Pellet) 2oz Dry in secondary

Don't worry about the lack of a 60minute hop addition. The bitterness is spot on.

This IPA won gold in the IBU challenge at the IBU Open in Iowa earlier this year and gold at 8 Seconds of Froth a few months ago.

If you brew, let me know what you think.

Good ole Aurora, CO Tap.
I haven't ever checked out the details but I'm sure they're available online.
I used pH5.2 in the mash

I brewed 10gal of this stuff about a month and a half ago. $96 for ingredients! It came out great, but I had to use regular hops instead of the pellets. Using a full 2oz in the secondary was a bit much. Took forever to finish fermenting with an OG of 1.078

Thanks for the recipe, I am impressed. This was my first all-grain and everyone loves it.

I'm glad the recipe worked so well for you. It's one of my favorites. It is an expensive brew but I think it's well worth every penny.

Default It turned our great


I brewed a batch of your award winning IPA, and it was awesome.

Aroma was perfect, taste was excellent, head retention was great.

I can't wait to brew it again and scale it up to a 10 gallon batch.

Thanks for sharing.

haven't brewed this specific recipe, but I really enjoy the use of both cascade and williamette as aroma and flavor hops.

Congrats on the award!

Any information on the alpha % of the hops? I might just make this later in early February.

I just cracked open my first bottle of this beer, it's only been in the bottle for a week but it is already PHENOMENAL. This is by far the best beer I've brewed, thanks for sharing the recipe.

I know this thread is ancient however I just wanted to point out something. Aurora Water just won the best tasting water in Sep. 2009. The test was done of all metros and smaller cities in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Aurora Water will represent the AWWA in Chicago 2010 for the best water! I know this, I work for Aurora Water...hehe

Heres a link to what I said if anyone wants to have a look!
