Absolutely amazing. One of the best beers I\'ve made.
8.25lbs English Pale Malt (3.5L)
Mash at 147* for 75min
Stone gives the exact hops they use. I substituted a few based on what I have, what I want to use up, and what I feel won't make a difference. You'll see the hop Stone uses in parenthesis.
2oz Belma (Calypso) - Mash Hopped
10ml Hop Extract @ 90min
1oz ea. Simcoe, Belma (Delta), Northern Brewer(Target), Amarillo @ 15
1.25oz ea. Citra, Cascade, Centennial (Motueka) @ Flameout
Whirlpool for 20min
WLP007 - Dry English Ale Yeast
Dry Hop 1: 1.5oz ea Nelson Sauvin & Galaxy
Dry Hop 2: 1.5oz ea Nelson Sauvin & Galaxy
This beer has a million hops, so let's cover the important parts. First, you absolutely need Galaxy and Nelson for the dry hop. The beer won't be the same without it. Secondly, as you can see, I substituted some of the late kettle hops for what I had on hand. It didn't make a difference. Feel free to use the exact hop Stone uses if you can find it.
Next, the hop extract isn't critical. You're targeting 20AAU at that 90min addition, so if you can't find any hop extract, just add the appropriate amount of a clean bittering hop. (e.g. 1.18oz of Warrior @ 17% AA)
The grist is pretty simple. Mash as long as you need/want to ensure full conversion. 75-90min would be recommended.
I allowed the hops to steep hot in the kettle for 20min before I started chilling it. Also make sure to oxygenate the wort well. Get a big healthy starter of WLP007 going. You're looking for around 300B cells. Then ferment on the cooler end for WLP007. I started at 63-64, then nudged it up to 68 once fermentation slowed down.
Be very, very careful of oxidizing this beer once fermentation is over. I racked this into a keg to dry hop it so that I could purge the keg with CO2. I let each hop addition sit for 3-4 days, then finally kegged the beer.
This turns out absolutely identical to Enjoy By IPA. If you're a fan of the beer, and you can source the hops, I'd highly, highly recommend brewing this.
