Last weekend I did my first simcoe single hop IPA, inspired by Mikkellers.

5.0 gallon

11.5# simpsons golden promise
5oz Munich
5oz Cara 20

75%eff OG estimate 1.068
IBU around 60 (or a little over)

1oz simcoe @ 90
1oz simcoe @ 10
1oz simcoe @ 5
1oz simcoe @ 3
1oz simcoe @ kettle off

measured OG 1.070 @ 75 degrees

probably dryhop with two oz or so

The ferm chamber smells amazing!

what ya think?



Reason: spelling

I'll be curious to know how it goes. I've got a freezer full of Simcoe and I'll probably do a single hopped IIPA with it. I've always liked Weyerbacher's Simcoe IPA and so I'm looking forward to trying one of my own.

So kudos to you. I'm sure it'll be tasty.

i sure do love me some simcoe. My last 4 batches have been simcoe only and I have been very pleased with the final product. The hop flavor is strong, but very clean. I think you will like it, very much.

Wow! Four consecutive batches of nothing but simcoe?

If it tastes the way it smells, it will be awesome. This is the first time i've opened a package of simcoe. I scored a bottle of the wyerman simcoe and didn't really find it to be that great, but i really did like the Mikkeller's but its $5.50/12oz. a little high.
