Hey everyone, just made an Imperial IPA using some hops I had leftover from last year.
Here's the recipe I used:

13 lb Two row
1 lb British Crystal 1
8 oz Cara Pils
4 oz Red Wheat
1 lb corn sugar

OG came out to about 1.090 for 5 gallons.

My hop schedule was:

.75 oz warrior 60 min
.5 oz simcoe 60 min
1 oz warrior 10 min
1 oz simcoe 10 min
2 oz mittlefrue 5 min

I pitched two US-05 packets into the primary for a quick 62*F healthy fermentation! (see attached picture)

After the primary fermentation I plan on racking to the secondary with 4 oz Centennial hops for about one week. Followed by dry hopping again in the keg with 1 oz tetthang.

How does this hop plan look? I'm fairly new to determining what hops are best for what and was hoping for a little noble hop kick to my IPA.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I have used it in another recipe by itself and enjoyed it quite a bit. I guess I'll see how this turns out.. Hopefully drinkable
