1.5 lb - 30L

Hops:
Falconers Flight
2.5oz @ 60

2.5oz @ 5
Dry Hop 2oz

Yeast
Either US-05 or Nottingham


Please make changes or suggestions

Batch size?

I'd ditch the honey malt for sure but the crystal malt is probably ok. If you're in love with the idea of honey malt, the ditch the crystal. You don't want both in an IPA. I'd go up to 5-8% with either crystal or honey malt, or a combo of both, but no higher.

I've never used Falconer's Flight, so I have no idea about the hopping!

falconer's flight is supposed to be a substitute for simcoe I believe?

OG? IBUS?

IBUS = 88

I'd say with that OG:IBU ratio you'd be okay with a little sweetness in there...that being said I have never used honey malt in an IPA. So I don't know just how sweet it is. Though it sounds interesting for sure.

I use Vienna in my APA! That beer never lasts long, in fact my last keg lasted about three weeks!
