Default Ninkasi IPA what do you think?

Was shooting for a Ninkasi rip off since I can't get it here. Had some help here with it a while back and brew day is this next week. Thought I would let the experts look it over first

6lb 8oz X-Light dry malt extract
1lb Munich malt
6 oz crystal 60L

.75oz summit 60min
1/2oz summit 30min
1oz amarillo 5min
1oz centennial 5min
1oz amerillo 7days dry hop
1oz centennial 7days dry hop

Wyeast London ESB (1968)

Og 1.067
Fg 1.021 - Believe it will finish more like 1.017
SRM .9
IBU 67.6
ABV 6.1

Thanks so much for everyone on this sites help. I have made some fantastic beers with your input

Are you going for the Total Domination IPA or the Tricerahops Double IPA?

Either way, looks good to me. You might want to add in another variety of hop. I met the brewer at a tasting and I remember him saying they use at least three different varieties of hops in the TD and at least five in the T-hops (of course I'm not smart enough to remember to write down which varieties!).

I drink it all the time and I would be surprised if it had summit or Wyeast 1968. Of course I could be wrong (it happens sometimes).

I put this together off what others had said they heard was in it so I have no idea if I am on the money or way off.

Going for a total domination and I have only had it once so who knows what I will get.
I am sure it will be beer and I will drink it though

From the research I have done (check other threads on here), the brewers themselves have indicated 1968 and centennial/summit/amarillo. Also caraHell malt as a specialty malt. Damn i love this beer! Please report back on this recipe.

I will do that Picobrew made this today so am looking at 6 weeks to try one at least. You were one who gave me some help putting this together thanks for the help.

As a side note the house smelled great!

By the way I used columbus inplace of the summit since they were out when I placed my order for supply's

Looks alright to me, I'm not sure it will be Total Domination but it will be a good beer. I'd be surprised if Ninkasi has that beer finish that high as it doesn't taste like that sweet of a beer to me but i could be wrong. I would probably put some carapils or something for mouthfeel, also on the hops I would probably do a first wort hop, a bittering addition, the 30, and put a lot of hops in at 5, 3, and whirlpool. Make sure you dry hop the crap out of it as well.

I'm pretty sure they use 1968....I know it's a British yeast they use. Jamie brought the yeast with him when he left the Steelhead and started Ninkasi.
