All recipes are 6 gallons post-boil, 70% efficiency, Morey for color, 15% evaporation, 7.27 gallons preboil, Rager IBU, and most hops are in grams not ounces. Most, if not all recipes are primary only (no secondary).

If you brew this, please reply with your results.

SG 1069
79% apparent attenuation
FG 1013-1014
SRM 8.8
7.4% abv
IBUs

90 minute boil

WLP001. Ferment starting at 68F, let it increase to 72F over the course of fermentation.

14 lbs US 2 row
1.31 lbs Crystal 40 (substituted for Carastan)
1.31 lbs Carapils

0.5oz simcoe @90m
0.25oz simcoe @60m
0.25oz columbus @60m
0.25oz simcoe @30m
0.25oz columbus @30m
0.75oz simcoe @15m
0.75oz columbus @15m
1oz cascade @10m
0.5oz columbus @1m
0.5oz simcoe @1m
0.5oz each of amarillo, simcoe, columbus, centennial, and cascade for dry hop.

Mash @ 152F for 35m or until conversion
Mash out @ 168F
Sparge @ 170F

Tasty mentioned adding gypsum, but did not specifiy further. Nathan recommended finding the water report for Santa Cruz, CA. He then said that water additions probably don't play a huge role in this particular beer.

Tasty and Nathan recommending either adding 0.5oz columbus @90m or increasing the simcoe to 1oz @90m.

Green Flash is in Vista,Ca. Not sure why they would want the water report for Santa Cruz, unless of course they have another brewery there that I don't know about.

I could have mistyped it. Is there a Santa Cruz County?

lets not forget to add Jamil's logic behind the 6 gallon post boil volume since it confuses some:

6 gallons post boil > 5.5 gallons in the fermenter > 5 gallons in bottling bucket/keg

I will include that in the intro for all future recipes. I will post some more tomorrow, unless I am busy at work

Not sure to be honest, but it's NorCal Vs SoCal, so obviously it would be completely different water profiles. I don't want to detract from the thread, but I thought it was worth pointing out.

I found Vista's water profile online and have the numbers on another computer if anyone wants them. Not surprisingly, it is fantastic water for IPAs right from the tap. I use the water profile for many of my IPAs now and it is very nice.

I hope he doesn't mean the Santa Cruz in northern CA, because our water is terrible. I would brew with straight SC water if someone paid me to. Well, I would, but remove any possibility it could be traced back to me.

Greenflash runs their water through an activated carbon filter and then adds gypsum.

When brewing IPA's or pale ales, I will add 6-8 grams of gypsum for a six gallon batch. When I do not add the gypsum the resulting bitterness is a little soft or round, for lack of a better terms.

Haven't sent my filtered water out for testing but when I do, will post results.

**EDIT**
I live in Vista and also use an activated carbon filter. It's not the same filter as Greenflash but I would have to assume the result is fairly similar considering our water comes from the same place.
