3 oz Briess Crystal 10L

SRM: 7-8
Hops:
1.5oz Centennial @60
1.0oz Amarillo @45
1.0oz Simcoe @30
1.0oz Ahtanum @20
2.0oz Cascade @10
1.0oz Chinook @5
Irish Moss @15
dry hop: 1oz each of Amarillo, Chinook, Simcoe leaf for 7 days

added 4.8 gallons of strike @170 -- to get 152 for sacc rest for 60min
collected 3.0 gallons first runnings
batch sparge 4.5 gallons @175--to get to 168 for 10min
collected 7.1 preboil
Final Batch was about 5.3-5.5 gallons to primary

I kegged this beer and had multiple people taste it, compare it to flower power ipa, and nobody could tell the difference between my homebrew and flower power. I use a large grain bill because I only get about 65% efficiency. If your efficiency is more, then you might be able to slightly lower your grain bill, but why mess with this recipe at all if you like Ithaca Flower Power. I have made this beer many times, so you should feel comfortable to be able to reproduce this.

I've brewed it a number of times, and yes just like the original-- which I love as well. When I batch sparge, i collect until I get about 6.8-7.0 gallons preboil, then boil down to a batch size of 5.3. I'm surre yo will enjoy this beer.Click image for larger version
