This is Brian Salapek. We've talked a few times before but never met. I definitely am going to brew this recipe, this is truly a world class IPA!

This looks great! How did you ever develop such a complicated hop schedule?

so i just finished brewing this!
my local store had everything except the amarillo hops. (i subbed pacific jade)
it's now sitting in a bucket with the oak cubes and yeast.
after i had initially cooled it with my coil i gave it a few minutes to settle. which kinda never happened. a lot of junk made it into the primary. oh well
i ended up at about 1073 with a lil less than 5.5 gallons. at this point im hoping 5 makes it into the keg.
cannot wait to taste this beer!!!

This stuff is good. You'll like it! Now you've reminded me that I need to make another batch of this soon...

The oak definitely a round spiciness to the party and is good. Think I'm going to split the batch and leave it out of half to see exactly what the difference is...

At 1.026, no wonder they are saying it's sweet.

I took a gravity reading of mine, since there is still activity and it's at 1.012. I ended up fermenting a little cooler than normal (57-59) so I think warming it up is releasing a lot of CO2 in suspension. If it hasn't changed tonight when I check it again, I will have 10 gallons kegged up Friday!

Holy crap! I never do someone else's recipe but this one sounded too good to be true. Thanks! I don't know how it will all end up, but the first gravity pull at 5 days was unbelievable! Totally orangy and delicious! Started at 1.070 and day 5 was 1.014...gonna let it drop to 1.012 before I dry hop. I thought the 10.5 oz hop bill would be too much but again, it is phenomenal! Side note...I added .25 Citra at 30.

Thanks man!

Matt
