Carafa II would be fine.

I used Carafa I-but steeped for the whole mash (by mistake) and the brew turned out great.

Carafa II is a little less roasted than Carafa III-if following the original recipe posted-you may want to add the Carafa II for the last 20 mins of the mash as opposed to last ten minutes.

Thinking about hopping a little longer and maybe with some whole flowers from an online shop. What's a good amount of time to dry hop without getting grassiness?
Dry hopping with pellets for more than 7 days can extract unwanted flavors. Swap out the hops if you want to dry hop longer.

I'm with brrrman on the type of hops making a big difference. Also consider the amount you are using.

Dry hopped it Monday and will split half into bottles and keg the rest this weekend. One other question though. Should I expect a marked increase in hop aroma after dry hop? I am going with 2.5 oz of centennial, an ounce of Amarillo, and an ounce of Liberty at 68f for about 5 days. I went with what I had on hand for the dry hops.

I don't dry hop often and I know the only hop additions after the 60min addition were essentially knock out. I tasted and smelled my hydrometer sample. Nice, smooth bittering (I love magnum for that). But my hop aroma was very subdued. Hoping the dry hop will straighten that out.

I also like a prominent citrus flavor in an ipa. Thinking about moving a portion of the Amarillo to 15 or 20 min.
If you really want that citrus To stand out I would be generous with using the Amarillo at 5, 1, or at 0 minutes. 15 or 20 is going to burn off that aroma.

Thanks in advance and thanks for the amazing sounding recipe. This will probably be my next brew.

OK, just entered it in by hand, converted it to a "partial extract" to make up for my compromised capacity for mashing (12.5 lb grain, 3 lb DME). I ordered the goods so this is my next brew. Can't wait!

I just brewed this on Saturday. It was my 2nd all grain, but everything seemed to go OK, and I ended up at 1.08. I used Carafa 3 with the husks (I didn't realize the recipe was for dehusked), and I added it at the same time as the rest of the grain. My LHBS was out of Amarillo, so I used Simcoe that I already had. It's been bubbling away happily for 2 days. I can't wait for fermentation to slow down so I have an excuse to sample it.

I wouldn't be a bit concerned about your hop choice. Should be great. This is my favorite beer I have made so far. I did tweak the hops a little bit but mostly as indicated. I did use the dehusked Carafa III and added it at 15 min so I can't speak to that. From what I understand it might be a little harsher and more roasty. It's reasonably roasty as written but sounds like you will be fine.

Enjoy

I am finally getting back to this recipe. I haven't brewed it in over a year now. Going to brew 5 gallons this weekend.

I'm brewing it the last week of December. I have friends asking when I will brew again. So tasty.

I have to admit it is one of my most memorable tasting beers. I have brewed lots that I can't even remember but this one sticks in my head.
