1.5# Corn Sugar (Dextrose)
1# Muntons Light Dry Malt Extract
1# American Crystal 40L
60 min 2 oz Columbus ~ pellet 15.4 » 105.8
boil 30 min oz 1 Australian Galaxy ~ pellet 13 » 27.6
boil 5 min 2 oz Australian Galaxy ~ pellet 13 » 16.9
and then dry hop with another two or three ounces of galaxy, mash at 150 and ferment with us-05. Any input of what could make this better let me know. I was thinking of mashing some carapils as well but then id have to get more DME. Thanks!
Grain bill is ok.
I'd definitely change up the hopping, though. IPAs are all about hops flavor and aroma, and not about tongue numbingly bitterness. I'd add more late hops, in a more balanced spread. Like this:
.75 oz columbus 60 minutes (or to 40 IBUs with this addition)
1 oz galaxy 15 minutes
1 oz galaxy 5 minutes
1 oz galaxy 0 minutes
Dryhop with galaxy and/or columbus hops for 5-7 days.
