Default Pliny Light

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: US-05 (2) packs
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.065
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: \"115.9\"
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 7.5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21
Additional Fermentation: 5 days dry hop
Tasting Notes: This is my favorite beer I have brewed out of 45 batches to date.

Huge amounts of tropical fruit and dankness. This is the second time I have done an IPA with Galaxy and it works very well with Simco and everything else here. Next time I brew this I will give some attempts to dry the beer out more to the 1.010-1.012 range. You can easily drink this beer hand over fist the way it is though. I use a constant recirculating full volume mash and get around 65% efficiency every time. Be aware of hop loss, I started with 8 gallons pre boil.

7 lbs two row (American)
6 lbs Pilsner
10 oz Carapils
10 oz Crystal 60
1 tsp Gypsum


1.0 oz Amarillo Mash hop (Whole)
1.0 oz Columbus 14%AA 90 min FWH (Whole)
1.0 oz Columbus 20 minutes (Whole)
1.0 oz Simco 14%AA 20 minutes (Whole)
1.5 oz Simco 14%AA 1 minute (Whole)
1.0 oz Galaxy 14.1%AA 1 minute (Pellet)
1.0 oz Chinook 14.0%AA 1 minute (Pellet)
12 oz Corn sugar

1.0 oz each (Galaxy, Columbus, Simco for 5 days)

I do a 20 minute whirlpool then turn on the immersion chiller. I was an idiot and ran this thing into a carboy and had a rather hard time shoving 3.oz of dry hop down the neck.

That looks amazingly good! I'll have to try those hop combinations if I can get a hold of some galaxy hops!

I brewed this a month or so ago, and it is the best beer I've ever brewed. Thanks for posting the recipe. I didn't have Galaxy or Chinook, so I switched them out for Armarillo and Mosaic which I had on hand whole leaf, the columbus was pellets, and the result was absolutely delicious. I'm going to brew this again tomorrow and it will be the first recipe I try to do completely the same. Just a great summer beer.

Question, why the 2 packs of yeast?

Just a big yeast pitch since I wasn't using WLP 001. Glad to hear you liked it. I killed that keg pretty quick and need to re-brew it soon.

Think this would be just as good with Conan yeast? I now have it banked and I am looking for some recipes to try it with.

I'm sure it would. I had a couple 4's of Heady when this was on tap and both are super hop forward. Should work well.

@frod1963 I brewed this again today. Made a couple adjustments to the hopping from the first time I brewed it because I didn't have enough hop bags. I used an IBU calculator for the first time and the final result was 142! Does that seem about right to you or is it maybe a bit much? I've got this on draft and had to brew it again because the prospect of running out was making me anxious.

My IBu calc was done on beersmith and I believe mine is sent to Rager. At the "100+" IBu range I'm not sure 20-30 makes a huge difference like it would in a light lager.

With the SG and FG posted it will be 6.7% per BeerSmith.
