Hey Guys,

I'm looking to recreate something similar to Stone's Sublimely Self Righteous (XI Anniversary Ale). This is an unbelievable Black IPA. I have found some recipes online for an AG recipe. However, I don't know where to begin to come up with something for an extract.

Obviously I don't expect an exact clone, I am just looking for something similar.

www.northernbrewer.com has a black IPA kit. It is fermenting in my basement right now. It looks fabulous! Order that. 5 ounces of hops in the boil and another ounce of dry-hop.

Mmmmm

Yeah, I noticed that AHS has a kit too. I might just start with that and add some additional hops. However, I am also curious about how I would come up with this without needing a kit.

I guess part of my wants from this thread is to get a little bit more insight into how people would come up with a recipe. I'm still just a noob.

Carafa Special III is the grain you want to use typically. Not much, maybe .5-0.75 lbs in a 5 gallon batch should be enough to get plenty of color in there.

Poking around online, I see Brewmaster's Warehouse has it listed under Roasted Malts as "Weyermann De-Husked Carafa III".

Thanks. Do you think that will add enough of the black ale flavor? Or are you suggesting this grain solely due to the fact that it will darken the colors?

Reason: Typo

Nevermind the last post. I looked it up online too and Carafa Special III was recommended by Stone directly.

+1 on Stone's Sublimely Self Righteous! I just bought the AHS Black IPA kit an I'm really hoping it tastes pretty close to Sublimely. If anyone has brewed this kit and tasted the Stone version, can you let us know how close they are?

LarryC, man I envy your location right about now. I was just out in San Diego and got myself some Pliny, Sublimely Self Righteous, and Bourbon County Stout. All great beers that are unavailable to me.

The Northern Brewer recipe uses 9.5 lbs of dark LME plus some dark specialty grains. This stuff is black!
