Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: 260 bil. cells
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.075

Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14

Tasting Notes: Fresh hop flavor

After I brewed this, I was actually really surprised at how close it was in a side by side comparison with Arrogant Bastard. The color and mouthfeel are identical. The hop flavor/aroma is more pronounced in my version, which is to be expected with the massive wet hop addition, late in the boil. I've tried dry hopping, but I try to turn this beer around rather quickly because of the wet hops and I get great aroma without them. Not an exact clone, but definitely an Arrogant Bastard inspired beer. I brew this every fall, with freshly harvested Chinook Hops.

13 lbs. Maris Otter
2 lbs. Vienna Malt
1.5 lbs Crystal/Carmel- 120L

Mash: (single infusion: 1.25 water/grain)
60 minutes @ 152 degrees F
10 minutes @ 168 degrees F

1 oz Columbus @ 90 minutes
1 oz of Chinook @ 15 minutes + Whirlfloc
12 oz Wet Chinook @ 5 minutes (can be subbed for 2 - 2.5 oz of pellet hops)

260 billion cells of WY1272

Carbonate this beer quickly and drink fresh. It is really fantastic.

Default Fermenting times

What were your approximate time in primary? Secondary? How long did bottle conditioning take and how much priming sugar/carbonation does this style require?
