152. It finished out fine.. it may be carbonation. It's my first kegged beer, and I'm still tweaking my system.. might just be undercarbed.

Oh I see - (I use 11.5-12psi)

You had me a little worried - might be hitting the AG version this weekend!

I am going to brew this tomorrow but I was gonna make it a little more hoppy than the original recipe. I have an extra 2 oz of Amarillo. Since this is going to be my second brew, any ideas where to add the extra hops during the boil time?

Depending on what you are trying to do with the extra 2 oz. If you want a more bitter result add some of it at the beginning of the boil. Flavor should go in 20ish to 10ish, aroma at flameout. You could spread out the 2 ounces across all three.

You could also consider using some of it for dry hopping.

BTW I love this recipe. I am going to pick up the ingredients for this today so I can brew another batch. The first batch went pretty quickly. yummm.

It isn't a super bitter beer. My recommendation would be to keep your first batch true to the recipe but add dry hopping for more aroma.

I used Safale-04 because the home brew shop was all out of 05. I also used 9 lbs of liquid extract. Just checked it again after a week and its bottomed out at 1.020. I don't have the OG because I didn't have a hydrometer.

Should I re-pitch to get it down a bit?

I agree with kable.

Give the original a shot first and decide where you want to go.

For me, adding the dry hopping is the way to go IMHO, gives it a great traditional IPA aroma. The recipe as it stands is really good, so if you are a hard core hop head you can always add more IBUs to your next batch.

Just tried this one after having it in primary for about a month, and just a week in bottle (I couldn't help myself). Absolutely amazing -- best beer I've made yet! I had some supply issues and had to use Amber DME, and also used Midwest Supplies' personalized yeast (Wyeast Headwaters Ale). And also dryhopped with another ounce of amarillo for a couple weeks. But in any case, absolutely delicious -- not overwhelmingly bitter, but tons of hop aroma and flavor that really stands out. I recommend this recipe (and variations on it, obviously).

Border - Cool!

I am actually thinking of doing this all grain with a superior pale ale blend (slightly darker SRM than plain 2row). Wouldn't be as dark as your amber, but darker than the regular. This encourages that experiment. I loved the extract version and have done it twice - it disappears!
