Ive been reading the IPA recipe database and the other threads in this subforum about IPA recipes. I want something citrusy (is that a word?) with a dry finish. Originally I planned on all cascades for aroma and magnum for the bittering. I have around a pound of each of those in my freezer. This weekend when picking up some 2 row I found 2 ounces of amarillo in stock so I grabbed them. I have never brewed with them before so I thought they might go good with the cascade citrusy thing Im looking for from what ive researched.
This is what I came up with in beersmith using what I have in my cabinets...
10lbs - 2 row (have 13 pounds total in my stock)
1lb - carapils
1/3lb - crystal 60 (have a pound in stock)
1lb - corn suger last 15 minutes of boil
1oz Magnum - 60min
1oz Cascade - 15min
1oz Amarillo - 10min
1oz Cascade - 5min
1oz Amarillo - 0min
I have pacman, us-05, or wyeast american ale 2 available to me in my yeast bank in the fridge. leaning toward pacman.
Maybe dry hop with an ounce or so of cascade since I have a bunch of it. The beersmith specs put this at (i typically get around 80% eff BIAB):
Batch size 5.5g
What do you think? I like a citrusy / dry IPA. I also have 1/2 pound crystal 10 and a half pound of vienna in my cabinet.
I tried to keep the cascades and amarillo at the end of the boil. In what Ive read and brewed this gave me great aroma / flavor.
Thanks for all help this great community given me!
