Agreed, it is one of the better east coast IPAs available.

From their website:
"The beer was brewed with over 1,200 pounds of wild, organic brown and white rice, which helps the beer ferment dry to better showcase the five varieties of hops that are brewed in. It is later dry-hopped with generous additions of Chinook and Citra hops, creating a complex nose with hints of tangerine, mango, papaya and pine."

Anyone know what size batches they brew to give us a clue on how much rice that is percentagewise?

Doesn't sound too tough.

I’d go with 80% pils/pale and 20% of the rices. You’ll have to grind and pre-cook the rice in plenty of water to gelatinize the starches before mashing. Speaking of which I’d mash ~150, do give good attenuation. OG ~1.072

Blast it with hops, primarily Chinook and Citra. I like Columbus to bitter IPAs, and Simcoe and Amarillo are always nice additions (although Centennial and Cascade are always options as well). I’d go with enough hops at the start to get close to 100 IBUs, and then a few big additions right near/at/after the end of the boil.

Ferment with a big pitch of clean American ale yeast. Once the most of the yeast drops out rack onto 3+ oz of dry hops, wait 2 weeks then bottle/keg.

Hope that sends you in the right direction, good luck.

I also used 1056 yeast for this and mashed about 149. Its kind of (actually a really big) pain to brew this beer because of the rice but it neat to do a "rice beer" that has a whole lot of flavor.

I think he came here to post that recipe and never came back! Maybe his spidey sense will tingle and he'll return to answer your question...But look at the post dates
