So I went to the LHBS yesterday to get the ingredients for a brew day tomorrow. I'm still trying to learn how different ingredients taste, so I wanted to do an IPA with a basic grain profile and a single hop, which I had chosen to be Centennial. Well, they were almost out of Centennial hops
, so I winged it and grabbed a little of this and a little of that. Here is the recipe I came up with. I call it Dumpster Fire IPA.
Let me know if you have any opinions.
Batch Size: 5 gallons
11 lbs. Pale 2-row
1 lb. Crystal 40L
Mash at 154 F for 60 mins.
Sparge at 170 F.
1 oz Centennial - (60)
1 oz Chinook - (5)
1 oz Cascade - (5)
1 oz Liberty - (1)
1 oz Centennial - dry hop last 7 days of secondary
Yeast - Wyeast 1056
Fermentation - 1 wk primary, 2 wk secondary, 2 wk bottle condition
Plugged this all into iBrewmaster and it came back with an 1.059 OG, 5.76% ABV, and 58 IBU. What do you guys think?
