Couple of question on this brew.

Seems like Centennial is short on supply these days, at least at my local sources. Anybody have a suggestion on a substitute? I realize it would move away from the "clone" idea but I can settle for a good "something close" while I wait for a clone attempt.

Secondly, for dry hopping, I would rather go with leaf hops to keep the beer as clear of hop particles as I can. Should I increase the amount if using leaf form?

Thanks! I'll hang up and listen.

Here you go, 1 lb of Centennial for $19 http://www.hopsshack.com/store/HP1041.html

(Beware: they have Williamette, Nugget and Columbus for $7. I ended up with 5# of hops)

That's a good price too. Other places I've seen as much as $16+ for 8oz.

CastleBlack, try NikoBrew.com, he's 5$ flat rate shipping. I'm in Manassas BTW. Going to brew this recipe up next weekend though I'm going to hit 100+ IBUs. We'll see how it turns out.

btw.. I don't get why Stone classifies this as an IIPA.. it's only 7.7%, which is where I targeted my grain bill for this brew. Is it just me or or is that damn low for a double?

Thanks for the source Scott, I ll definitely check them out. Flat $5 shipping is great and if their prices are equally low i ll place some hop orders with em.

Good to know you are in Manassas, we are not far at all. At the moment I shop 50 LB sacks of Briess 2-row from the LHBS in Falls church, they have great prices on bulk grain but steep on the specialties.

As for Ruination, yeah its not a IIPA, for American standards its actually a really typical IPA so far as gravity and everything else is concerned.

I hope your brew comes out fine, I am dry hopping tomorrow with Centennials and 10 days later its going in the bottle. Should be my Game Of Thrones brew, nice bold and super hoppy.

On the IBUs mine came out to 103.4, but i don't mind 100+ IBUs of West Coast Hoppyness!

Hope yours comes out great, keep me posted and Happy Brewing!

The bjcp has the abv range for IIPAs listed as 7.5-10%. So it fits but is on the lower end.

Plus, back when Stone first released it, it was towards the early end of the IIPA frenzy. It was actually pretty robust for its time. And damned tasty, of course.

Dry hopped the beast, now for the final wait before the bottling!

Happy brewing to you all.
