1.00 oz Williamette [5.50 %] (0 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops -
0.50 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (0 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops -
0.50 oz Chinook [11.50 %] (0 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops -



Beer Profile


Measured Original Gravity: 1.075 SG
Bitterness: 104.2 IBU
11.5 SRM


I am going to add 2# corn sugar incrementally to the fermenter...this will put the "actual" OG up to around 1.090.

1.090 OG + 100 IBU = yummy.

I just thought I would provide an update, I took a gravity reading today....I pitched on the pacman cake. OG= 1.091......current FG = 1.014.... we are looking at %10 ABV and 100 IBU......I tasted a small sample and it was a delight. I think the low fermentation temp, 62-64 degrees, is making for an amazingly smooth and clean ale.

i will keep updating everybody on this brew, but I am about two weeks from bottling. No dry hop planned.

Hahaha, no dry hop needed! Would you like some beer with your hops?

Actually, looking back I think I would dry hop it! Hahahah

Seriously though, I have 25 of these beers left and as they age, they just get better....softer and more dangerously smooth. The intense late hop additions give it this floral/citrus flavor that just keeps getting better. I will likely brew this beer again, with magnum, centennial and chinook......just to switch it up.

When I serve it now, I simply call it Imperial Pale Ale...and I serve it at cellar temp...my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

I don't see a problem with either, actually. I've never used the pacman strain, but I've had pretty good success pitching on yeast cakes in the past.

FWIW, I once had a single pack of Nottingham take an IIPA from 1.090 to 1.008. If you're going to go with the Notty, I'd recommend 2 packs for anything over 1.070.

Nottingham is amazing. I recently pitched two packs of notty in a 1.075 IPA...in two days it was down to 1.013...I mashed at 154 so I expected it to finish higher than that..but it is perfect!

The pacman yeast cake just went to town on this IIPA, the beer turned out great. Personally, I have found that with the pacman yeast, the beers need a little extra conditioning time for a slight leathery/medicinal flavor to go away.

I appreciate you posting the recipe. I may copy it. N. Dakota is too far to drive to beg for a glass!

The recipe looks really complicated, but it really isnt. Once you measure out your hops and put them into containers, it isn't so bad.

For the bittering, any high AA hop will work...I am going to use Magnum next time...cause that is what i have on hand!
