I've had this recipe on tap for about three weeks now. It's excellent! Thanks to the author. My OG was 1.056 and the beer fermented out in 8 days (I used a 1320mL starter of 1056). I conditioned for two weeks and dry-hopped during the last week of conditioning. Here are some action photos:

So any idea what I can do to guess at the % once I get the FG? Or should I take another reading ASAP? It's been bubbling away for a day now.

Once it's really done fermenting measure the finishing gravity and multiply that by 4 to get a good guestimate of the original gravity.

Looks good. I've currently got a recipe similar to yours fermenting. I'm of the same mindset that a black IPA should be a bit different than just a black-colored IPA.

Here's mine:

11 lbs two row
.75 carafa II
.5 c-80
.25 special roast
1 oz warrior @60
1 oz amarillo @60
1 oz [email protected]
1 oz amarillo hop tea added at kegging
1 oz cascade hop tea

I think this style is fairly fool proof. Tasted it already and it tastes good.

Anyone have a problem with overly-bitter malt profile from Caraffa 2? I've noticed a slight thin bitterness that I am pretty sure is coming from the high kiln malts (not from infection, fermentation temp etc). I recently did more of a scaled back bipa and used 3% Carafa Special II, 2% Chocolate, and had a much lower IBU (45). The only other time I've used Carafa was in a porter last year w 3.8%, and it had the same odd bitterness. Esp odd bc carafa is 'debittered' malt right?

Any feedback on using Carafa - or similar problems w dark malts?

For reference my BIPA recipe was

11 lbs MO
.75 lbs Vienna
.50 lbs Crystal 80 3.8%
.375 lbs Carafa Special II 2.9%
.25 lbs Chocolate 1.9%

.75 oz CTZ 60 min
.50 oz EKG 5 min
1.50 oz EKG flameout

I'll probably tweak this towards DAMN THE MAN next time. I will definitely be bumping the IBUs!!
Thanks

Can't say that I have, although I haven't really compared it to anything to try and see if I can.

This is probably the best beer!!

I finished it a couple of months ago and I miss it, until now I've never made the same beer twice, but this is going to be the first recipe that I repeat, line for line as soon as I get those ingredients again.

Well done and thank you Damdaman!

I just yesterday got a hold of Otter Creek Black IPA and I loved it. Decent hop flavor with the malt backbone of a coffee porter.

I'm not familiar with the grains used in this the OP's recipe, will this come close to Otter Creeks? Or should I grab a porter recipe and hop the living bejebus out of it?
