120min tastes way too earthy for me...
Heros are made 10 gallons at a time.

Kegged/On Tap - Double IPA
Conditioning - Orange Ale

I made the 60 minute from Sam's and tried it Saturday. It's good, real good.
I hit the gravities spot on (luckily).

I have been working down there for over two months helping them with some automation. It gives me a chance to talk about homebrewing fro the pros.
Brian, the head brewer created the recipe and wants to try one of mine.

I'm scared!

Saturday I brewed the 90 minute and it's rocking in the fermenter! A lotta hops in this one.

I made this one but varied modified the yeast, used 1 more pound DME and 2 total pounds of grains. Came out very good, one of my favorites.

The 90min IPA is above and beyond my favorite beer (big fan of the 60 also). So i figured id attempt a dogfish head style IPA as soon as my ingredients arrive. Heres what i ordered not sure on exact brew day procedure yet. So let me know what you guys think or if you have any recommendations:

American Pale - Qty: 12.00
Carapils - Qty: 1.00
Crystal 60L - Qty: 1.00
Aromatic - Qty: 1.00

Was planning on doing a single infusion. Should I consider using a different mash schedule?

Amarillo Pellets (4 oz)
Chinook Pellets (2 oz)

White Labs - Pacific Ale

...i know the ingredients are slightly different from some of the recipes ive seen around, but i think it should work somewhat. Anyone know where to find the hop varieties ive seen on the recipes? Are they tuff to find cause this is a bad year for hops?

Im brewing this one right now and I used the wyeast smack pack, no starter. Lots of action for a few days and now barely anything. Wonder if the yeast was not enough for this high G beer? (I'm still new to the game so help out if you have tips)

I realize this is a super late reply, but that seems to be a theme in this thread. At the moment, Austin Homebrew Supply, Midwest Homebrewing Supplies, and Brewmaster's Warehouse have all the hops required for this recipe, Hops Direct is a lot cheaper but they only have Amarillo right now.

What's a good substitute for the 1099? LHBS has a better selection of White Labs but it also sounds like 1098 is probably fairly close and I think they have that.

I live right near DFH. If you are looking for ready to go clone extract kits, my local HBS owner is friends with Sam (Owner of DogFish) You can buy many Extract clones kits right from his store and online from the website. I have no affiliation with the store just letting you know a good place to order kits from. I know they Have 60 and 90 minute, Indian Brown Ale, Midas Touch and my personal fav Raison D'Etre kits as well as many others. A majority of the kits come from the book they made Extreme brewing. The owner of the store is actually pictured in the book working with Sam. I currently have a 60min clone in secondary right now... MMMMMmmmmmmm
