Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Nottingham Dry   
Yeast Starter: No   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.077   
Final Gravity: 1.026   
IBU: 69.2   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 8.8 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days @ 68   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @68   

This was based off one of my favorite extract recipes. I dabbled with other AG IPAs and was never quite as satisfied. This recipe is definitely as wonderful as my original. I tweaked it for AG and went all out and it's a winner!

Recipe: Ambrosia IPA
Brewer: Orpheus
Style: Imperial IPA
TYPE: All Grain

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 6.41 gal
Estimated OG: 1.089 SG
Estimated Color: 8.8 SRM
Estimated IBU: 69.2 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 85.00 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
13.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 93.10 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 6.90 %
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] (Dry Hop 21 days) Hops -
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (Dry Hop 21 days) Hops -
3.00 oz Northern Brewer [8.50 %] (60 min) Hops 69.2 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (1 min) (Aroma) Hops -
4.00 oz Oak Chips (Secondary 14.0 days) Misc
1 Pkgs Nottingham (Danstar #-) Yeast-Ale

Notes: I actually took 1 # of the base malt and toasted it in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes prior to crushing with the rest of the grains.

I was only going to dry hop for 2 weeks and add the oak for 1 week but I neglected my secondary for an extra week and I'm glad I did!

I read the rave reviews this got in the other thread, so I think I definitely want to make this.

Orpheus, what temperature did you mash at? Is it just a single infusion mash?

I'm not at the point where I can tell what the temp should be based on the grain bill/desired malt profile, so please excuse the n00bish question.

No problems,

I used a single infusion mash @ 154 degrees for 60 minutes. I just plugged all the ingredients into BeerSmith myself and let the program tell me my temps, etc.

This keg was my 'Chanukah keg." The thing kept giving beer. It recently kicked, but the last couple glasses were simply heaven!

My next batch is going to be a stout, but I'll have to get this beer going again ASAP.

How come you dont have a yeast starter for this batch? Since it's gravity reading is above 1.050, the yeast might not survive that long.

No need for a starter with dry yeast.

The cell count in dry is way higher than liquid, so no starter needed.

I made a batch using this recipe and it turned out great. I had to make a few substitutions because my local brew shop didn't have a few of the ingredients, but I tried to stick as close to the recipe as possible. It turned out to be one of the best beers I've made. The oak chips are a nice touch.
