Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Pacman   
Yeast Starter: no   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Yeast Cake   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.091   
Final Gravity: 1.011   
IBU: 94   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 11.5   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 weeks at 62   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): none   
Tasting Notes: Amazing floral flavor and aroma, nice fine bubbles and noticable sweet malt balance   

This IIPA tastes amazing, it is actually very light bodied and deceptively drinkable considering it's abv. THe intense late hop additions give an amazing floral/citrus flavor and aroma, it actually reminds me of Anchor Steam Beer....but just ALOT more aggresive.

This is definitely going to be the next IPA I put on. But I have a few questions, would wyeast 1056 work with this beer instead of pacman, and what volume/temp sparge do you use? Also, is the dextrose simply dumped into the beer, or do you boil it in a little water first to ensure it is steril?
Sorry for the noob questions, this will be my first forte into all grain brewing.

I use a double batch sparge, each 2.5 gallons at 170 degrees. You could certianly single batch sparge, fly sparge or use whatever sparging message you want. Personally, I think the most important part is the be sure you use the correct volume of water for the mash and make sure you mash temp is correct. You need to be sure you mash low or you won't ferment out properly.

I boiled the dextrose first with just enough water to dissolve it, then I cooled it to 70 degrees and simply dumped it into the fermenter.

Wyeast 1056, WLP001, US-05, Nottingham and Pacman would all be great yeasts to use...I just find pacman to be the best of the lot as far as attenuation and consistincy is concerned. It is some great yeast.

THis beer is fantastic right now, but I think it is really going to hit its stride after a few months in the bottle, right now the malt, hops and alcohol flavors are distinctly seperate...over time they will blend and mellow and really be amazing.

One thing to note about this beer. My brother in law and myself each enjoyed one this past weekend. When the beer was at fridge temp, the beer was good, but as the beer warmed up to 50-60 degrees it became fantastic. The hops become super evident and the beer was just a pleasure to drink at that temp, the flavors were explosive. So if you brew something up like this...maybe serve it at cellar temperature and don't even mess with the fridge. At %10 ABV this ain't no chuggin beer.

I brewed this back in May and it was outstanding!! My friends said it was the best berr that I made so far. I made another batch today. It was sooo good. Do yourself a favor and brew this one!

I did change the hops around quite a bit. I used all Amarillo, Cascade and a touch of Chinook hops. A total of 10.5 ounces.

NICE! I think I will sub ammarillo and centennial for the willamete and cascade in my next one!

Do yourself a favor, and stash a few away. They get smoothed out and quite delicious over time.
