I'm planning a "league of nations" IPA for this weekend and have 2 questions.


1) What would be a good mash temp? I usually mash at 154, but was considering 150 for a drier profile, but not at the risk of being too thin.

2) Is the hop schedule (est 70 IBU's) enough to put the maltiness of my grains in the background, but not be ignored?


Est. Stats
OG = 1.065
FG = 1.016
IBU = 70
ABV% = 6.3%
SRM = 10

Batch size = 3 Gal
Boil Volume = 4 Gal
Boil Time = 90 mins

Cooper`s Ale Yeast ( AA Approx. 75%)

Grain Bill
2# Briess 2-row
2# Weyermann light Munich
2# Munton & Fison Maris Otter
1# Briess 20L crystal



Hop Schedule
Boil x90mins
0.20 Magnum Pellet (13.1%)
0.20 Perle Pellet (8.3%)

Boil x30mins
0.50 Cascade Pellet (5.0%)
0.25 East Kent Goldings Pellet (4.5%)
0.25 Fuggles Pellet (4.0%)

Boil x15mins
0.50 Cascade Pellet (5.0%)
0.25 East Kent Goldings Pellet (4.5%)
0.25 Fuggles Pellet (4.0%)

Boil x5mins
0.50 Cascade Pellet (5.0%)

Dry Hop
0.75 Cascade Pellet (5.0%)

FYI (.2 oz Magnum, .2 oz Perle, .5 oz EKG & .5 oz Fuggles left over from previous recipes)

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.

By the numbers, it looks similar to Avery Brewing's IPA, although their OG is a bit lower. Also, they mash at 149* on almost all their beers, AFAIK, and I wouldn't describe any of their beers as "thin."

It looks like a pretty good recipe.
