I doing a Hopville Perpetual IPA clone:

12 lb Briess Pilsen malt
1 lb, 8oz Briess Munich malt 20L
1 lb Briess Crystal 20L
1.062 OG
1.020 FG

Hops
1.25 oz Target pellets, 60 min
1 oz Chinook pellets, 30 min
0.7 oz Mt. Hood pellets, 10 min
1 oz Cluster leaf, 1 min
1 oz Mt. Hood leaf, 1 min
1 oz Cascade leaf, 7 days
1 oz Citra leaf, 1 day

Misc
5 tsp Fermax yeast nutrient, 45 min
1 wirlflock, 45 min

Mash
Conversion / Saccharification Rest
1.5 qts/lb strike water to grist
68 F Grain temp at mash-in
Fly Sparge
2.153 gal (8.611 qts) at 171F
Kettle Yield 5.8 gals

What does 7 days for the cascade mean? Same for the Citra, what does 1 day mean?

How long should I keep it in the primary and secondary?

Thanks!

I assume that is days before packaging so 7 days dry hopping with Cascade and 1 day with Citra

Sounds like Perpetual at 1.020 FG, high mash temp & toasty malts, and with those earthy hops in the mix. I personally found the real beer to be incredibly sweet.

To answer your question...

Primary time = 2-3 weeks. Then 7 days of Cascade in the secondary. Remove the Cascade at that point, keg and add the Citra directly to the keg. If you're not kegging, then just dryhop with the Cascade & Citra for 7 days and proceed to bottle.

FYI - Yeast Nutrient and Whirlfloc go in the boil at 15 minutes left... not 45.

That's good, I didn't use either in the boil. I added the nutrient with the yeast for fermentation, clean sanitize spoon...

Thank you,
