Default All-Grain - Purring Kitten Session IPA

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP006 Bedford
Yeast Starter: Yes-700ml
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.044
Final Gravity: 1.017
IBU: 47.1
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 7
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Tasting Notes: Big grapefruity gorgeous nose, solid body, nice finish.

Of my 3 Session IPA attempts this has been by far the best. How can you beat a nice hoppy 3.5% beer?

UPDATE: This scored a 42 and won its category (Specialty 23) at the 2012 Las Vegas SNAFU Memorial & it ended up getting 2nd place in Best Of Show out of roughly 160 entries.

10/1/13 UPDATE: Version 2 of this recipe is here on Page 5.

10/19/13 UPDATE: Version 2 took 2nd out of 36 entries in Category 14 at XBrew 2013 in Redmond, WA and scored 40.6.

10/27/13 UPDATE: Version 2 took 2nd of 26 entries in the 2013 SNAFU Memorial Sheldon Jackson Competition for Best Use of Hops in Las Vegas, NV.

Nice. I have a couple of good simple recipes for a session IPA.

I do one that is very similar to this grain bill...2 row, vienna, biscuit

I also do one that is 2 row, wheat, munich, and crystal 15 or biscuit.

Any photos?

I like that the hops are readily available. What yeast?

Yeast was White Labs 006 British Bedford (a Platinum strain). Something British will prob be your best replacement. Look for similar attenuation. Ferm temp was 65-68 (swamp cooler with ice) for first week or so and then 68-71 (no ice/out of cooler) for the remainder.

i brewed a version of this a few weeks ago, and has been in the bottle for almost a week now. i'm dying to try it, so i'm cracking one this sunday. my version used nelson sauvin/centennial/cascade as dryhop, and used wlp001 instead of english ale yeast. pre-bottling samples smelled and tasted wonderful good luck!!!
