Grist:
11 lb mix of 2-row pale malts (US & UK; sometimes some Vienna)
0.75 lb Biscuit
0.5 lb US Crystal 80L
0.08 lb Simpsons UK Chocolate
0.63 lb Cane Sugar

Mash 60 min 151F

Check pre boil gravity and add sugar to attain end of boil OG of 1060-1065; most recent effort achieved 79% efficiency

Hop Bill (all pellets):
3.9 AAU Amarillo, 60 min
7.8 AAU Amarillo, 45 min
4.9 AAU Amarillo, 20 min
11.1 AAU Simcoe, 20 min

20.3 AAU Simcoe, 2 min
2 oz Amarillo, dry hop 7 days
1 oz Simcoe, dry hop 7 days

Bottle with corn sugar to 2.25 vol CO2

This is my fourth version of this IPA with minor adjustments to crystal malt and chocolate to achieve 12 SRM, plus adjustments to hops but always Amarillo and Simcoe. This has taken a second for ipa in a local competition and been well received in a local festival. Highest judge score so far is 38.
