I just realized i messed up and used WLP007... I brewed this up saturday using a starter and checked FG last night and it's sitting at 1.014 so if it's sitting at 1.014 tomorrow i'm going to go ahead and dry hop it. I'm going to do it in the primary instead of the keg this time.. I think.

Yeah 007 will probably take it a little more dry but should be fine.

Come to think of it, I'd taste it and see how it is at 1.014. I rolled with 1.017 because I had a deadline to enter it and being a little under-attenuated seemed like something that would work with this style of beer. If it's somehow a little cloying or sweet let it get on down a few more points (where it likely wants to go with 007).

I'm hoping it stays at 1.014. I was going to rack it to a keg and chill it before dry hopping it, but i'll have to see if i have power at the house when i get off work. This is my first experience with 007 and i have done some looking around for info. I have seen some people say that it craps out early...fingers crossed.

If my power is still out i may just dry hop in the primary and then keg. I usually dry hop in keg so i will probably just use the schedule you have on the first page.

Thanks for the help!

I only have us-05 and us-04 on hand. Thoughts on using either of those. I figure us-05 would be good, but mash a bit higher to get a similar fig.

This beer is amazing! Again I used wlp007 and citra instead of the nelson. My IPA loving lady and buddy are enjoying it.

Oh, like the look of this one. Been thinking about making a lower ABV beer for a while and this looks like just the ticket, will report back with results when done.

Default Purring Kitten Session IPA Version 2


Here's my second shot at it. I bottled the WLP006 side today and it seemed like it's going to turn out quite tasty. This one ended up at 4.7% thanks to pitching a vial at half the amount of beer as last time and probably doing better on not dipping the swamp cooler temps too low. 87% mash efficiency certainly didn't hurt either.

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP006 Bedford on 2.75 gal, WLP002 on other 2.75gal
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.048
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 48
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 6.9 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 24 days. 66-68 for the first week and then 70 for the remainder.
Tasting Notes: Better body than before, still has great nose, finish seems a little less hollow.

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

Grain Bill:
5.5lb 2row
1.25lb Goldpils Vienna
0.5lb Flaked White Wheat
7oz Crystal 40
5oz Crystal 60
4oz Aromatic
4oz Carapils

BIAB
Mash Schedule: 151 for 60min
Mash out at 170 for 10min

Hop Schedule:

First Wort Hop - 10g Columbus 17AA
15m - 20g Chinook 12.1AA + 20g Falconers Flight 11.4AA
5m - 19g Chinook 12.1AA
0m - 36g Falconers Flight, 27g Nelson Sauvin, 17g Columbus, 16g Chinook (let hops steep for 20 min before starting chiller)
Dry Hops - Each half got: 20g Columbus, 28g Nelson for 10 days, then rack and additional 28g Mosaic & 14g Citra for 4 more days.

Water was all RO with the mineral values built to: 112ppm Calcium, 22ppm Magnesium, 0 Sodium, 50ppm Chloride, & 182ppm Sulfates. Effective Alkalinity calculated to 104 & Residual Alkalinity to -63.

Mash was 5 gallon and I added 5.5g Gypsum, 3.5g Calcium Chloride, 8g Epsom Salt, 4g Chalk. Sparge was all RO with no additions (as per usual).
