I am brewing the recipe for this beast of a beer from the Extreme Brewing book this weekend. It's been a while since I brewed so I am going to do a 10 gal batch. I am really looking forward to smelling all of those delicious hops once they are in the boil.

As stupid of a question as this might be, has anyone on here made this recipe before? How did it turn out? Any changes you would make (or did make)?

Well, kind of. I brewed an IIPA last fall from a recipe I found that sounded interesting to me at the time and bore the same name. I didn't realize it was possibly a clone at the time and off the top of my head I can't remember where I found the recipe, though it wasn't from that book. Possibly someone posted the same recipe online uncredited. I'll check when I get home later tonight and let you know. It turned out delicious, though...

So I guess you're making the one mentioned here? http://brookstonbeerbulletin.com/the...u-cant-refuse/

Granted this is referring to the RR version, and not the version he submitted to the book, but wow: "It starts with CTZ and Magnum hops, but uses primarily Amarillo and Centennial for flavor and aroma to the tune of around 10 pounds per barrel." 10 lbs per barrel? that's like 26 oz for a 5 gallon batch. That's a *monster*. I'd certainly love to try it.

You must have a big set up to get a 10-gallon IIPA knocked out. What's your grist?

That's an extract recipe as I have that book and every recipe is extract. I made that beer last year and indeed it is a great IIPA.

Here's the recipe (truncated):

Steep 1 pound cracked crystal 20L in a hop sack in 6 gallon H20. Hold at 150F and steep for 15 minutes. After 15 mins, add in 10 pounds light DME and boil. 90 min boil.

1 oz magnum (90 min)
1.5 oz columbus (90 min)
1.5 oz columbus (30 min)
3.5 oz columbus (flameout)
1.5 oz willamette (flameout)

Ferment with WLP001 or 1056

Dryhop with:

0.5 oz columbus (3 - 5 days)
0.5 oz chinook (3 - 5 days)
0.5 oz amarillo (3 - 5 days)
0.5 oz chinook (day 7)

OG 1.066 - 1.069
FG 1.012 - 1.014

Or just click the post 2 posts above. I should read the entire thread first...

The recipe you posted would yield a MUCH higher gravity then the one you posted there

I actually own this book and now that Im flipping through it it seems to be to be kind of poorly written. Alot of the SG dont correspond properly to the grain bill listed, and alot of the units of measurements are really screwy

On his sour cherry ale it says 8 ounces (or 100 g) crushed what malt

8 ozs = 230 grams. it doesnt make any sense!!!
