I just put my last 4 bottles of this in my fridge.

I need to brew more of this soon... yummy stuff.

Simple brew that just tastes great. Love the grapefruit aftertaste.

Just did a 10 gallon AG batch of this this past weekend. This stuff tends to disappear, so I might run up another 10 in a week or two.

Drank some more last night as I haven't been home for a couple of weeks. I'll admit, it's growing on me, but I still think Amarillo is going to be better with other hops for me.

While I love the stuff, it isn't overly complex. This may come as a sting, but it isn't meant to be. I see it as like a higher end daily IPA beer. Like instead of grabbing a labatt's, I can grab this. That makes it sound like it is a simple beer with little flavor. That isn't the case. However, it has a lighter body, so it is very drinkable.

I am planning on doing a single batch with a different base grain (Superior Pale 2 row). It is 3 SRM vs. typical 2 SRM. I think this will help give it some more color and body. But we will see...

To show you how drinkable, I had several people over, They all liked it a lot, non-IPA drinkers weren't sure at first, but it grew on them by the time they went through half a pint. A labatt blue only guy didn't like it at first. By the end of his first 8oz he changed his mine. 4 pints later he was saying how good it was. unfortunately having people over means I have about 2-3 bottles of the stuff left! Hence the double batch...

I'm really itching to brew this beer! I'd really like to brew it all-grain though; would anyone be willing to post a 5-gallon all-grain recipe??

I posted an all-grain version of the recipe early in the thread. Might have been for 6 gallons, I don't remember.

This is based off Rick's - 5.5 gallons (I kept the ratios but put it at 5.5gals), but I do that so the hops can sit on the bottom for the last bit, so i can fill up the where I want and have a little too much wort, versus a little too little wort.

I actually have a double batch ready for dry hopping this weekend. Wahoo!

13lb 10.7oz Pale 2 row
10.1oz C40
1.5oz amarillo 8% (60)
1oz amarillo 8% (15)
1oz amarillo 8% (5)
.5oz amarillo 8% (10)
1oz amarillo 8% dry hop 10 days

Mash at 152F for 60 minutes. 3 weeks primary ferment 10 day dry hop in secondary or keg.

I have brewed this 3 times now.

The first time I did back to back 5gal batches in the same day trying a 'late LME addition' test. Didn't quite get my numbers to match so there ended up being more variables than just the late extract. Surprisingly people seemed to like the beer with the LME added at the start of the boil. Since this wasn't what I expected, I am writing the experiment off as a failure due to the numbers not matching ;>)

A few weeks ago I did an all-grain BIAB version of this. I tried keeping everything exactly the same but couldn't resist dry hopping it.

In a few weeks I will be able to do a 3 way side by side sampling.

In the future I will probably add more bittering, for sure keep the dry hops and start blending in some Centennial and Cascades.

I really like this recipe as a good clean base to try out other things. How can I turn this into a black IPA :>?

I want to try this recepe this weekend. If I do it with a partial boil 3 Gallons does it change the amount of hops I use? The batch size will be 5G. Do I keep the same hop schedule and amount as the original recipe?

thanks
Ernie

I should have noted, most recent double batch of this stuff was set up for the above listed hop amounts, but with hop AAUs of 9.6% I believe.

I didn't adjust the IBUs for my first batch and used the hop amounts but had 9.6% amarillos. So ever since, that is what I have used. i.e. I increased the bittering from the original recipe, and dry hop 10 days.
