Tasting Notes: (haven't tried yet will post results)
69% 8 0 Pale Malt, 2 Row, US
17% 2 0 Vienna Malt
9% 1 0 Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L
2% 0 4 Candi Sugar
2% 0 4 Biscuit Malt
1% 0 2 Black Patent Malt
Magnum 1 oz 60min pellet
Cascade .5 oz 5min leaf
Cascade .5 oz (dry hop) leaf
Orange zest .25 oz 5min boil
Coriander .25 oz 5min boil
Mash at 155, 165 before the addition of grains unless the temp of the grains was previously brought up to temperature (steep 40 minutes). Sparge 165 3 step. Boil 90 minutes, start 60 minute hop/spice schedule 30 minutes in. If doing stove top (like I did) and have problems with boil volume, I used two seperate stock pots 21 quart, and the other slightly less. Use just enough water in the pots to completely cover the grains and not spill over the top (about halfway mark on both pots). After sparging reduce boil volume by boiling an hour to an hour and a half, should be able to consolidate after in one pot to make it easier for hop/spice schedule. Use fresh orange peeled just the skin no white rhine, washed well (if concerned about infection boil for 10 min), may want to roast the coriander in a pan to help release flavor.
Yeast isn't common but retaining a prior slurry, help with costs, use a more traditional yeast for an IPA if stringent about beer style guidelines. According to beer calculus 40 IBU's is the minimum for an American IPA, the SRM is also within the guidlines. ABV should be around 6.5% depending on attenuation and other variables. I'm going to condition in mini kegs (reused coors home draft kegs) I'll update when the best outcome will be for conditioning (by my palate).
*Baseline for bittering with 40 IBU's by BJCP style guidelines for an IPA without the addition of Centennial, with centennial will be around 60 IBU's which is more recommended. Also, some more late additions of citrusy flavorful hops may be more desirable like amarillo last 5 min/flameout/ or even add with cascade dryhopped. If you want to substitute magnum for an even higher alpha hops for bittering, and for AIPA standards summit is great and American.
Dryhopping: Recommend using a muslin or other mesh bag when using leaf hops. Neat trick is to use a sanitized marble in the bag to keep the hops down.
Price: $20 (depending on the place you get your grain, hops, and utilizing a prior yeast cake/slurry.)

“The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George...Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security.”
