The brew day went well, except I hadn't brewed for a little while and I forgot about the crazy boiloff my setup has. I stopped sparging once runnings got down to 1.020 (and I had 30L of 1.055 wort). I guess that was my first mistake (I normally stop when runnings get down to 1.010).

Anyway after the 90 minute boil I ended up with 17L of 1.081 wort in the fermenter Oopsie. It tastes damn hoppy and pretty darn bitter.

The Armirillo is coming through really strongly at the moment, which is interesting - I wouldn't have expected it to.

It's started bubbling away, so that's a good sign

An update: My last gravity reading (taken a few days ago) was 1.020. I think it's going to stop there, maybe a point or two lower. I had a bigish OG (1.081) and my brews rarely go below 1.020 (dunno why).

It tasted kinda weird at first, had an almost artificial-sweetener aftertaste to it which was not pleasant at all. Possibly caused by my fermentation temperature being too high (fermenter at 24c - 75f). However that's since faded (I think mostly after dry hopping the crap out of it and giving the yeast some time to clean up) and it's tasting really good now.

Can't wait to bottle this and try it when it's done!

Yep - 1.020 was where it finished - took another "gravity reading" (ahem, taste tester ) this evening. Tastes amazing, if a *little* boozy (at 8.1%).

Well, this is what it looks like after 2.5 weeks bottle conditioning:


Tastes pretty amazing, *loads* of citrus aroma.


Thanks for the recipe =)

Ended up coming out really sweet. Although I think I may have milled a extra 6-7oz of munich by mistake. Aroma is good, heavy citrus. Dry hopping not enough for me. I think some of the dry hops were affected from being in primary. I dry hopped another ipa right after this one the same way and I think I'm gonna go back to dry hopping in secondary after these experiments.

I'm loving this beer. I brewed it about a month ago and I'm planning to brew it again in a week. Thanks!

Another week of bottle conditioning and I will finally get to try this. I will definitely post an update. Can't wait!

Just finished carbing. This stuff is amazing. Super hoppy, but the citrusy taste overpowers the bitterness resulting in a beautifully balanced ipa.

This looks like a great recipe! I've been looking for and IPA with a citrusy finish. I plugged the recipe into iBrewMaster and it comes up with an OG of 1.082 and FG 1.020. Do those numbers sound right and if so with an OG of 1.082 did you use just one package of US-05 (rehydrated)? Thanks!
