2-Row will work just fine. Take about 3-4 pounds of the (un-milled) 2-Row and toast it in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes....stirring the grains a couple of times.

Adds a nice subtle breadiness to make up for not using MO.

what a truely excellent idea, fine sir! I did something similar recently while brewing the CYBI Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Sumpin with wheat. this is my next brew...I used to hate hoppy beers. Now they are never hoppy ENOUGH!

I brewed this 8 days ago and it is still slowly bubbling in my blow off tube… quite impressive seeing as how all my previous ones have stopped bubbling after 4-5 days in an airlock lol.

I can't wait to try this one, the first big, hoppy beer I have tried as a relative new comer to home brewing.

Thanks for the recipe.

Is there anyone our there that can help me translate this recipe to an extract brew? I'm not set up for AG or partial mash or anything like that but really really want to brew this one. Any ideas guys? Thanks....

For a 5 gallon batch, reduce the specialty malts by 25% and steep in 150 degree water for 30 minutes. If youre not doing a full boil keep the bittering hops the same and reduce the late addition and dry hops by 25%. 8 lbs of light dme should get you close to where you need to be in terms of gravity. Add that in around the 10 minute mark.

This is what I came up with using a conversion of (grainx0.75). The OG is way high on this calc. I'm also confused about what a friend said as I showed him this . He says that there are certain ways people add the LME to their boil to avoid an extensive sweet taste when batches call for more than 9lbs. Any thoughts on this since the conversion called for 13.5lbs? And this seems like a lot of additional grains to me also. Any thoughts on how to revise this recipe for the better, please share your wisdom! Thanks for the tip on tasty brew btw. Calc is pretty cool. Although this might be a wrong conversion, which I know it is, I do like the 10 abv

Okay. A little mod to the recipe. Tell me what you think. Thinking about adding some jalapeño to the dry hop also. Not too much but just enough to at a tiny bite of spice on the tongue so the carb really accents the jalo to create that explosion of all the hops flavor.

Any suggestions? Or input? Much appreciated. Thanks!

Just realized that I have all of the necessary grain & hops in my basement to brew this. And I'm brewing a 1.060 IPA that will make an excellent starter to generate a good jolly pitch of yeast. Crap. I think it's time to get stupidly hoppy.
