Process:
Mash at 148F for 60m.
Fly sparge
Boil for 60
Whirlpool for 20m
Fermented at basement temps (around 65F ambient)

I have brewed a bunch of IPAs in the past couple years. The grain bill is solid, and I haven't changed that too much except for adjusting the percentages based upon what I have on hand. I like the Munich and Vienna for what they add to the body and flavor. The wheat and carapils help with the head retention.

In the past, I was using a simcoe/amarillo hopping schedule, but came to realize it's too fruity. The cascade, simcoe, citra flavor/aroma combo seems to have hit the sweetspot for me.

I typically will only change 1 thing for a new batch. Not this time though. This was my first time doing a mash hop, a FWH and a whirlpool. I have no idea which of these worked for me, or if it was a combination of all three. Whatever the case, I'm very happy with the outcome.

Will add pics later.

Here's a pic I took last night. Sorry for the cell phone image. I'm not a photographer with fancy fill lights, nor do I care to entertain such silliness.
