I saw that Northern Brewer had amarillo and citra in stock, so I figured what the hell and listened to the podcast again and wrote down the recipe. Guess I'll be brewing this sometime in June.
Kern River has hard water; I didn't write down what Tasty did to his, but a normal gypsum addition for a double ipa is in order.
Kern River also doesn't do a Vorloff during the mash, for what it's worth.
6.25 Kg pale 2-row (Briess, I got rahr since it's a lot cheaper)
350 g Briess carapils
350 g Briess Munich
170 g wheat malt
350 g Briess Crystal 10
170 g Grambrinus Honey Malt
Mash at 148 F for 1 h.
Boil (60 min):
32 ibu Nugget @ 60 min (25 g @ 10% aa)
25 g citra @ 30 min (10.5% aa)
25 g citra @ 15 min (10.5% aa)
25 g citra @ 10 min (10.5% aa)
25 g citra @ 5 min (10.5% aa)
Whirlpool 20 min (Tasty shifted the 30 min addition to the whirlpool)
Ferment: 67 F with wlp001 or wyeast 1056
@3 days (~80% fermentation; KR recommends dropping out the yeast or I guess moving to secondary at this point) 33 g citra/15 g amarillo
@6 d 20 g citra
@9 d 26 g amarillo
@ 12 d 31 g citra (let go 3 more days, then crash cool or do whatever you do)
I think that's it; it may not be the normal format, lol. You need 6.5 oz of citra and 1.5 oz of amarillo to do this. Good luck!
