Default Ninja Nelson - Black IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP080 cream ale blend
Yeast Starter: 1L
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.068
Final Gravity: 1.014
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 42 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): pitch at 60, fermented 62-64 for 2-3 weeks
Tasting Notes: velvety smooth body, fruity punch of hops, slight roast in aftertaste, low bitterness

===============================================
9.5lb / 76% 2row
1.0lb / 8% Midnight Wheat
0.5lb / 4% Munich
0.5lb / 4% Golden Naked Oats
0.25lb / 2% Honey Malt
0.75lb / 6% Cane Sugar


@60min: 1 oz Pacific Gem
@10min: 1 oz Nelson Sauvin
@0min: 2 oz Pacific Gem & 2 oz Nelson Sauvin & 1 oz Centennial
*hop stand for 30 min before chilling*
@dry: 1 oz Pacific Gem & 1 oz Nelson Sauvin


Mash at 148 for 60min
10min mashout at 168F
(mashout really helps get the rest of the color out of the midnight wheat)

===============================================

This is the 2nd version I did of this. The first one was good, but a bit funky from the Nelson. I added the centennial because to me, it seems to give a clean fruity/floral finish. Seems to have worked...I also added in some cane sugar like I usually do with my IPAs to get the body of the beer as far away from a stout as I could. Its really neat to drink and watch people's faces change when I hand them a glass of it.

You don;t really need to use the cream ale blend. I was just going for something that was as smooth and drinkable as possible. I wanted something that looked like a straight up stout but drank like a summer pale ale. As a result, this may not be hoppy enough for some to call it an IPA...
