Getting set to purchase my ingredients for a club brew this weekend. I'm scaling back a tad on the MO as I tend to get efficiencies in the high 70s. I'm also planning on pitching two US-05 packets for my 6g batch - it'll be the first time I'm rehydrating this strain too.

Quick question re: the sugar. I'm considering subbing turbinado (sugar in the raw) for the corn sugar. At just over 5% of the overall grist, I'm not expecting any major flavor differences between corn sugar and turbinado. All the same, has anyone used turbinado in an IIPA (or an IPA) recipe before?

Brewing this will be timely as I plan on entering it into a few regional competitions in FL - one being an all-IPA event.

Just added this to my backlog -- I'll brew it once the 20 gallons of IPA in the brew closet are gone

As for the turbinado, I've used it successfully in a few IPAs but not in that quantity. I usually add 1/2 - 3/4 cup (0.1-0.25 pounds)-- nothing close to 1# in the recipe. At the amounts I add, it adds a very slight touch of molasses -- I would expect a full pound to be way too predominant. Maybe someone else can chime in but I'd probably do 1/2# table sugar and 1/2# turbinado.

Interesting - In some of my French Saisons, I've used up to 1 lb of turbinado (added @ 10 minutes), but I don't get an overwhelming sense of molasses - but that may be due to the type of yeast I'm using as it almost dominates the flavor profile. My initial thought with this monster of an IIPA grain/hop/dryhop bill, 1 lb of turbinado wouldn't amount to much flavor addition, if at all. I could be wrong though - I might go half/half and see how that affects the overall product.

Just out of curiosity, when you've added in the turbinado, has it been the "Sugar in the Raw" brand? If so, did the grain/hop bill resemble anything close to Biermuncher's TUIIPA?

The recipe I used was a regular IPA (Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe) @ 6.7% ABV and 85 IBU. I used 4oz of an imported natural brown sugar which is similar to Sugar in the Raw, but with a stronger molasses flavor.

After comparing the recipes and comparing the sugar I used vs. 'Sugar in the Raw' -- I think you could do a full pound of it and it'll be fine -- especially with higher ABV, more IBU's to compete with, and definitely if you like molasses flavor. I hate to retract my original opinion but I think 1# of Sugar in the Raw would work well in this recipe.

Drinking this right now. Don't know what it is about this recipe but it was my 7th brew and first that did not have that homebrew twang! Great beer!

Brewed this on Sunday with a bunch of my club buddies for a summer party in July. Hit an OG of 1.083 after backing off 2 lbs of MO. Only changes were swapping out Mt. Hood for Citra and using Turbinado for my sugar addition. Woke up this morning to one hell of a blow-off.

Stoked!

I don't see either Mt. Hood or Citra hops in this recipe.

I meant to say I subbed the Crystal hops with Mt. Hood.

Just took a sample the other day out of curiosity to see where my gravity was...

1.083 on April 22.
1.012 on April 30.

WOW! Then I tasted the undryhopped, yeasty sample. WOW again!
