This much crystal malt, along with a high mash temp, gives Lagunitas their signature taste and mouthfeel. I was surprised by these numbers too until I tried a few of their beers.

I just brewed this last weekend. I forgot about the mash at 160 thing, so I ended up mashing at 153 which is what I normally do for IPAs. Oh well, I'm sure its still going to turn out awesome. I also had to make some adjustments to the bittering hops because my local store was out of summit and horizon. I used Warrior and Simcoe instead. I also added some simcoe to the 1 min hops just because I love them so much Everything else was the same. Can't wait to try this one!

Dang it I wish I could get Lagunitas here in Cincinnati!

Digging up an old thread.. but..

Planning to brew this one this season. I like to line up at least 6 recipes to buy hops for at harvest.

I listened to the original show. I am thinking a change was made in the original translation of this. The ration of horizon to summit was much greater in the original. I don't have my notes here but there is much more horizon relative to the summit. When I change the values for Horizon to 14g and reduce the summit to 3.5 g (conveniently 1/2 oz and 1/8 oz), the IBU come out correctly and the ratio gets closer to the original.

I am wondering if anyone has experimented with the base bittering addition?

Thanks,

Chris

I am tweaking this for my system to maybe brew over Thanksgiving.

Turned out awesome, however slightly on the lower ABV side. Ends up being around 5.50%, the real thing I believe is 6.50-6.80%. Will definitely be making it again, just will be increasing the grain bill next time to get the ABV.

Definitely worth brewing, the taste and aroma are pretty much spot-on.

I was getting about the same result when I put the recipe in Beersmith. According to their website, its about 6.2%. I will probably let it ride for my first attempt.. I have some big beers in keg as it is and having something a little smaller wouldn't be bad.

Thanks for the feedback!

I've brewed this beer a few times before, and I only just recently re-listened to the podcast. I am confused about the hop additions. Can someone explain why the Summit and Horizon values are so much different than what Jeremy indicated?

He lists the following g/L for each addition:

Horizon - 0.3 g/L
Summit - 0.05 g/L
Centennial - 0.5 g/L
Willamette - 1 g/L
Cascade - 1.5 g/L

The recipe here, as well as everywhere else on the web, shows what I would assume are proper values for the last 3 hops based on 22 liters / 6 gallons.

However, using the values above, it seems like the Horizon should be 6.6 grams and the Summit around 1.1 grams. Why are the values 10 and 4 respectively? It doesn't make sense to me.

Thoughts?

Just shooting from the hip here - I haven't listened to the episode in a while - but maybe it has to do with differences in the AA%?
