Thornbridge Jaipur IPA is superb. I would really like to brew this at home. Does anyone know what yeast they use and what combination of hops?

No, but I will be watching this post closely.

Here are a few posts from a UK homebrewing website:

This is a recipe that was apparently based on Jaipur; from the same site:

Jaipur doesn't have any Northern Brewer or Amarillo in it.

The recipe on the second page would be a much better place to start.

Was interesting to read from the Thornbridge link above that 70% of hops come post-boil. Looks like a hop rocket or other will be in my plans!

We have a hopback so the 10min additions etc aren't really necessary.

Also, we have a whirlpool copper and you can only use pellets in there as cones/flowers don't collect properly in the middle, and we don't like using tons of pellet hops as they often give a bit of a grassy/woody flavour.

Wow. Cheers, ChillWill.

I will safely assume that based on your info and the location in your profile that you know what you're talking about for a number of reasons. Clearly, it's a matter of technique over hop additions when it comes to hop flavour in Jaipur. Will certainly check out the recipe you mentioned. It's one of my favourite beers and I can't stop raving about it to my beery mates. Cannot wait to try in on cask next time I'm in the UK.

First heard about Jaipur on James and Oz Drink to Britain; first found it in Seattle at Bottleworks; and, was thrilled to see it in private bottle shops in Vancouver a few months ago. As a matter of fact, I'm about to go downstairs to have one right now.

Nice

We recently sent a tanker full of a few of our beers (Jaipur, kipling, st petersberg & raven). It's going to be put into kegs and casks when it gets there, not sure what is going to be put into cask and how they're going to do it (we sent in over fully carbonated for keg and had centrifuged the yeast out of it).

The recipe I posted isn't exact but it's actually surprisingly close. Do you do any water adjustments?

Oh... and are there some numbers printed on the rear label on the bottle you have (like 73/74), there's a good chance I was running the bottling line when those were filled.

Geez, do you want me to brew it for you as well? lol j/k

I'll try and do it this afternoon, I usually use American units (as that tends to be what all the online calculators etc tend to be in), and I don't use English hb sites as England isn't 'quite there' with homebrewing yet to put it politely.
