I like how all the hops add up to nice 2oz quantities. Easy to buy with no leftovers in the standard vacpacks at the LHBS.

Hey guys,

Not sure if anyone is still checking out this thread. Just wondering the est. ABV, and wondering if this is truly an imperial...? I'm on my gf's computer, so I can't access beersmith for it's estimates at the moment. Otherwise... this beer sounds great. Been looking for a true hop bomb.

1.078-1.017 * 131 = 8% v/v.
IIPA is listed as a OG of 1070-1090 and an ibu range of 60-120, so I'd say definitely yes.

Brewed this one up at the end of January and I've gotta say: "Got Dam Son!" This is a mighty fine IIPA!

I subbed the centennial for Cascade and upped the DME to 9#.

Woo....can only enjoy a few at a time but I'm lovin this one.

What's up with the "Aroma Hop-Steep" next to a couple of the hops? Are those supposed to be steeped for 10 minutes or tossed in with 10 minutes left in the boil?

Probably gonna brew this this weekend.

Hello, this is my very first post on homebrew talk! This saturday, a friend and I are going to brew our first batch of beer. We are both hopheads and this sounds like a perfect extract recipe for us. My question is about the times listed next to the hops, I'm a little unclear about what order and when the varieties go in. Any help would be appreciated. Is this too complicated of a recipe for a first timer? Thanks!

Not to complicated if you have a timer and pay attention to it. 60min additions go in after the hot break or after it starts to boil. All other additions count down from there, ie-10min addition is 50 minutes into the boil. if there's two 60 minute additions of different hops just chuck them in together.

I have to warn anyone brewing this beer. My entire house smelled like a hop garden for about 3 days after brewing this. Needless to say its fermenting nicely now.

I tried using this recipe as a base for my own IPA.

The differences being I used different hops and 9lbs LME and 1lb DME

For some reason my OG read at about 1.121!

Fortunately I made a 1L starter but I'm not sure if that was enough. After 3 days of heavy bubbling it stopped. I checked the gravity and it was down to 1.032 and it looks like it's staying there (I've checked several days in a row)

I'm new to this (only my 3rd time brewing) but I believe it's getting close to 12% ABV.

Does this mean by yeast is "drunk"?
Should I repitch with a different type of yeast?
