If this is close, I'm definitely aiming to brew it next. Great West Coast IPA!
I went by the GF Brewery on my way down to San Diego a few weeks ago. Great people. Just happened to be a Friday. Kid in candy store mentality- tasted a few, bought quite a few. Did not disappoint. I'm about to brew my third batch of the IPA. The first two were brewed with the Carastan. LHBS does not carry it, so I'll go with the C 40.

i have no idea what the commercial version tastes like. But I brewed this recipe. I measure in grams and was a tad heavy handed a couple grams here or there. I used whole hops for the entire process so i lost wort and effieciency.

Best beer I have ever brewed, hands down at 7.7% it goes down so smooth. Very balanced, doesn't taste bitter at all, Just liquid hops.

OG- 1.068
TG- 1.008
Pitched a 2L starter of WLP001 and WY1068

I've had the real thing and it is great. I'm fairly new to brewing and was wondering if there was an extract version of this recipe or can it be converted to an extract. Thanks.

After 2 weeks, and a big starter I only hit 1.015 FG. Looks like a few others were there as well. Now to dry hop.

I've had trouble getting my FG down on this one too. Last one was 1.019. I wonder if the longer boil time has anything to do with it. I can get down to 1.012 using the same yeast on a 60 min boil.

May need to go 3 weeks in fermenter.

It tasted great, especially since I used newly bought, unopened hops for the dry hopping part. Just now getting up to carb. More malty than my usual, mostly 2 row IPAs and a tad sweet. I'll reply in a couple months when I try it again (this was my fifth) and go 3 weeks in the carboy.

Question on the dry hop piece... Skip the secondary and dry hop on the keg, Dry hop after 2 weeks in the primary or rack to a secondary and dry hop?

Also, what temps are you guys letting this ferment at with the WLP001? How big of a yeast starter?

I brewed this last night, we hit the Starting Gravity head on at 1.069. I am extremely happy with my brew day, all the process improvements (ball valve on hot liquor tank, ball valve on the marsh pump, using the pump to avoid most lifting and better whirl pool technique/timing before running through the cfc chiller) went without a hitch! We hit our mash temps at 152, mash out at 168\169 and sparge at 168. The color on the wort looked great also!

No one responded before but I am wondering how it would be just to dry hop in the keg (only ) to save a racking to secondary step?
