I was planning to try this recipe soon. I have plenty of Cascade, Chinook, and almost of pound of Tettnanger in the freezer. If I adjust for IBUs, I'm wondering how close it would be using Tettnanger in place of the Williamette. I saw it as a sub on a chart somewhere, but I'm not sure how close they really are. Anybody have an opinion?

You'll be fine, just do the math and try and keep the IBUs up there. The fun part about this recipe is all the hops go in at the end of the boil, therefore you need a lot more in order to get the required IBUs. The result is a smooth IPA that has a fantastic aroma without the smack in the face of a dry hop bomb. It's an IPA for people who don't reside in Boulder, CO.

No. You get almost that much just from the Chinook addition. I use this for a ballpark.

I "finally" got around to brewing this. Hit my numbers perfectly, but wound up with a smaller amount into the fermenter due to a clogged siphon. If this tastes as good as everyone says, I'll be regretting not working harder to get all 5 gallons!

I'll likely dry hop in the keg with bagged leaf hops. Anyone used any other hops for dry hopping this recipe besides just cascades? (I was thinking 50-50 centennial/cascades)

OK, kegged and dry hopped with Cascades - VERY drinkable! No wonder it won awards. This will be on my repeat list, for sure!

Thanks for the recipe,
Rich

Got some dry hop in the keg and fully carbed now. Can see how it won some medals. Thanks for the recipe!

Long time forum-stalker, first time poster here. I had to break my silence to thank the OP for this recipe—it just won me best in show at a homebrew competition between my university and our rival school. (As determined by popular vote on enemy territory, no less!) My friends are already demanding more, and I can't wait to get another batch going.

Incidentally, I missed the OG by a couple of points (1.061), but my FG bottomed out at 1.005. I'm guessing I finished so dry thanks to a cooler mash than I intended—I've reason to believe my thermometer was wonky by then. I look forward to another shot at this recipe to recover some points on the FG and get a bit more body out. But even though the beer felt a little light on the palate to me, the great hop flavor kept it eminently enjoyable. Thanks for this one!

hey i'm thinking of trying your recipe this weekend (inaugural batch on my system). when it says additional yeast: 2 vials, does it mean you used 2 vials total?

I'd rather pay the extra 6.50 for a second vial as opposed to going through the effort of making a starter.
