Pours darker with a thicker head than the others, head dissipates quickly, citrus and fruity aromas with subtle sweet scent, definite IPA citrus notes, good hops, some roasted balance.

■ 2 lbs - Briess organic 60L caramel
■ 0.5 lbs - Briess organic roast
■ 1.5 lbs - Weyermann Carafa II
■ 0.5 lbs - Breiss organic chocolate malt

Hop Schedule (75 minute boil)

■ First wort hop with 1 oz. Centennial whole hops 9.3% a.a.
■ 60 min - 2 oz Summit pellets 18.1% a.a.
■ 15 min - 1 oz Amarillo whole hops 8.4% a.a.

Did you use the Carafa II Special (dehusked)?

Love the hops you selected. Cool that you used mostly organic ingredients, makes me think of Hopworks' organic Secession CDA.

Hi,

Yes, de-husked..... http://www.rebelbrewer.com/shoppingc...-ounce%29.html

I just personally prefer whole hops; I am looking into growing more varieties.



Cheers

Just reviewing the recipe, it seems like a crapton of dark malts for a CDA. So that's cool that even with so much it's still balanced nicely.

Yes, it is... you do not need to go organic I did because I was preparing to enter this in a local homebrew organic competition....

It is really nice.... You are right it is very balanced; I didn't know what to expect but I have made it now multiple times both organic and non-organic and it is always a winner.
