Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: WLP001   
Yeast Starter: 48 Hours, Stir plate   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.053   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 44.5   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 5.7   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3   
Tasting Notes: Crisp, clean, strong hop presence   

This one turned out utterly perfect & I think it's worth sharing. It was rushed to bottles and carbonation was heavy, so it took 7 weeks in the bottle to fully mature. At that point it was sparkling clear, effervescent, refreshing, and had a tasty hop presence but not over-the-top in that department.



Mashed at 150ºF for 1 hour. Pitched at 62ºF, let rise to 67ºF. 7 days in primary, then transferred to secondary & dry hopped for 3 days, then bottled with 4.5 oz dextrose.

Grain Bill
7.5 lb 2-row
2 lb Rye malt
0.85 lb Caramel 20L
0.35 lb Carapils
0.35 lb White wheat Malt

Hops
.5 oz Columbus @ 45
.5 oz Casacde @ 25
1 oz Cascade @ 10
1 oz Columbus @ 1
.5 oz Cascade (dry hop)
1.5 oz Columbus (dry hop)

Others
1 Tsp. Gypsum (in boil)
1 Whrifloc tablet (in boil)

Water
Arrowhead Bottled Spring Water

No protein rest. Mash was 60 minute single infusion. Serious chill haze early on, apparently went away after several weeks. Those last bottles had sat at room temp for 5 weeks and then in the fridge for 2 weeks. This is what it looked like early on (1 week in bottle, 1 day in fridge):

That's funny. I have a rye IPA that looks like that last picture there - hazy as hell - AND I FILTERED IT!

Filtering was a bitch. I only did one keg. Took about 2 hours and I had to turn the pressure up to the point were the filter was leaking beer.

If mine gets as clear as your first pics, I'll be a VERY happy camper. Guess I'll put it aside for a few weeks. Thanks for posting that great picture.

Out of respect for the OP, I'll just post a link to another place I've posted it.
