Here's our recent Black IPA recipe. I refrain from calling it a "Cascadian Dark Ale" becuase there are no cascade-like hops present. We were going for more of an earthy hop presence. Here we go:
-8 lbs US 2-row
-1 lb German Carafa II
-.5lbs US Caramel 407
-2 lbs granulated white sugar
-.5 oz Perle 7.7% 60 min
-.5 oz Northern Brewer 8.5% 60 min
-.5 oz Perle 7.7% 45 Min
-.5 oz Northern Brewer 8.5% 30 min
-.5 oz Perle 7.7% 15 min
-.5 oz Perle 7.7% 5 min
Mashed with 3 gallons at 152F for 60 min, then sparged with 2.5 gallons 170F water.
The wort tasted delicious, can't wait to taste it finished!
