Here is my first take on a Double IPA I am looking to make. My goal with this brew was to have slight malty profile with a darker orange hue. I wanted it to have a mild malt flavor but not so much that the hops wouldn't shine through.

I also wanted to hit 100IBU's and 10%.

I wanted to add American, Noble and English hops, and I threw a curve ball and added a Japan hop as well.

Without further adue here is my recipe:

Batch Size: 3.5gal
Efficiency: 65%
Est. OG: 1.099
Est. FG: 1.018
Est. ABV: 10.9%
IBU's: 100.1
SRM: 14.6
Mash @ 148 degrees

Grains
2 Row - 9lbs (2.0 SRM)
Maris Otter - 4lbs (3.0 SRM)
CaraCrystal - 1.5lbs (45 SRM)

Hops
Falconers Flight - 1.25oz @60 min
Pilgrim - 1.00oz @20 min
Spalt - 1.00oz @ 10min
Sorachi Ace - 1.00oz @10min
Falconers 7C's - 1.00oz (Dry Hop 7 Days)

Yeast
WLP001


Let me know what you think?

Why bitter with falconers flight? Are you looking for a lot of body? My DIPAs have a little corn suger to dry things out.

Chose FF just because it's a newer limited release and I liked it's profile

Not a whole lot of body, but some

Falconers Flight is generally used as a late addition for aroma and flavor. It's a mix of Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra and other hops. Bittering with it is basically wasting it.

Hmmm I figured because of the high AA's I could use it for bittering.

How would you suggest I move my hop schedule around? Maybe trade the falconers 7C's with FF?

WAY too much crystal malt.

If you want orange color, use some Munich malt in place of some of the maris otter and definitely take out at least 1/2 of the crystal malt. For a 3.5 gallon batch, I'd use .5 pounds of crystal at the most.

You won't taste the spalt over the falconer's flight hops.

Can do on the malts....

You recommend removing spalt altogether?
