    If it matters to you, S-23 is a koelsch yeast (= WY2575 and WLP003). W34/70 is a lager yeast -
    same as WY2124 and WLP830 - and makes a great Vienna Lager.

    IPLs are supposed to be like IPAs, with greater opportunity for the malt and hops to shine.
    With that in mind, and since you say that want something wintery, I would drop the pale malt
    and go with a m...

    If it is truly "unique," then it could be anything. But if it is a commercially available
    yeast, then it should be a Belgian yeast (descriptions on Beer Advocate mention the Belgian
    aroma). In dry yea...

    S-04 is Whitbread yeast (= WY1098, WLP007). It will attenuate about 75% and is highly
    flocculent. It is okay for sweet stouts, but is more at home in pale and amber ales.Wyeast 1332
    is Hales (Seattle)...

    As Big Mack points out, in an IPA a simple grain bill is generally going to be best. If you
    want more richness than pale two-row, you could swap all of it for Vienna (and pair it with
    C20L, as suggest...

    Looks fine to me, overall. I am not certain whether you will be able to tell that there is MO
    in there, underneath all of the hops. To bump up the toasty-ness, if that is what you are
    after, you could...

    Some of my students have brewed Brewer's Best Black IPA and Brewer's Best Falconer's Flight
    IPA, and both have turned out well. Brewer's Best also has a red rye IPA that looks like it
    would be good, b...

    This looks like Mysticmead's Raging Red. Very popular recipe.For the hops, I would push the
    Target bittering addition to 30 minutes to give smoother bittering. With the later Target
    addition, you coul...

    There is a nice calculator that will spit out a flavor estimate for many hops combinations. in
    how much of each, how you intend to use them, and see whether you like the result.My two-cents
    worth: Al...
