I was bored at work today and I dreamed up a little Black IPA extract recipe for my next batch:
5.00 lb Amber Dry Extract (12.5 SRM)
2.00 lb Amber Dry Extract (12.5 SRM)
1.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Carafa II (412.0 SRM)
1.00 oz Simcoe [11.90 %] (60 min) Hops 15.6 IBU
1.00 oz Simcoe [11.90 %] (30 min) Hops 12.0 IBU
1.00 oz Williamette [4.60 %] (5 min) Hops 1.2 IBU
1 Pkgs US-05 (Safale) Yeast-Ale
I may sub Chocolate for the Carafa, I dunno.
I've never used Carafa before, but I've had black beers made with it and I think it's safe to say that I love it.
Questions? Comments? Concerns?
It looks pretty good to me, Beersmith says ~70 IBUs... mmmm
