Help me customize my kit brew- Midwest "Hop Scare" IPA
This will only be my second brew, but since IPA's are my current favorite style of beer, I'd like to make this one a bit more custom. Here's the recipe:
6 lb Briess Gold LME
2 lb light DME
1 lb. Caravienne
0.75 oz Warrior 60 min
0.5 oz Amarillo 30 min
0.5 oz Amarillo 15 min
2 oz Cascade 5 min
Predicted OG: 1.058-1.062
Predicted FG: 1.010-1.014
Yeast: going to be using Wyeast California Ale V, and I will definitely be doing a starter for this one.
This is on its way to being a DIPA- 6.5% ABV, and IBU's around 55. If I wanted to give this one a nice hard shove over the edge, how should I go about it? More fermentables, of course.. I'd like more malt instead of just corn sugar, but I don't want to overdo it.
And what about dry hopping? I really really like grapefruity, floral hop flavors and aromas, and I'm not looking for more bitterness at this point.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Secondary: Bee Cave Robust Porter (with coconut)
Kegged: Cascade/Citra Amber Ale
