Default All-Grain - Not-quite-Imperial IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: S-04
Batch Size (Gallons): 2.2
Original Gravity: 1.071
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 58
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 12
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12 days, 68 F
Tasting Notes: Starts fruity, masking high ABV; ends with mild toastiness and strong hop bitterness.

I was trying to do a few things with this brew. 1) Make something the wife would enjoy, 2) make something that tasted different, and 3) make something right on the IPA-IIPA borderline. It took a bit of fiddling with the amounts of specialty grains to get the taste right, and a bit of chomping on barley at the LHBS to pick 'em out.


5.0 lb. Maris Otter 3L (83%)
8.0 oz. Special Roast 50L (8%)
8.0 oz. Carastan 30-37L (8%)

Hops (leaf):

1 oz. Willamette, 5.6% AA, First Wort
1 oz. Cascade, 5.7% AA, First Wort
1 oz. Willamette, 5.6% AA, 0 min.
1 oz. Cascade, 5.7% AA, 0 min.

Mashed 1 h at 152 F; fermented for 12 days at 68 F with S-04 in a Mr. Beer. Primed with 1/3 c. dextrose; looks like about 7.4% ABV.

Starts out with a sort of mango-grapefruit taste, but that quickly gives way to a mild roastiness and a clean hop bitterness.
