Default Founders Centennial IPA

Great stuff. Its difficult to find midwestern beer up here in New England but I was able to grab a six of this and was blown away. Highly recommended. I would love a recipe for this.

I've had a 6 of it and found it pretty tasty. For an all centennial brew, I pref Two Hearted over the Founders.

Founders is a bit harder to come by out here in Cali - yet to have this one.Ballast Point has to be one of the best all Centennial IPAs out there.

Often emailing the brewer works out - Founder's is great for that!

For your grain bill, use around 10% Carapils, 5% Munich, 5% Crystal 50-60, and 2.5% Caramunich 45. Target a 16.5 Plato OG and it should terminate between 3 and 3.5 Plato. Target 65 IBUs and make sure your flavor strike in the boil and the dry hop are both enormous. Good luck, hope this helps!

I get Centennial IPA all the time. I prefer the 2H from Bells, but they are both very nice. I'm still waiting for some Founders KBS to show up at my bottle shop. I might have to hijack a truck!

Centennial IPA is one of my two favorite IPAs (Bear Republic Racer 5 being the other). I sorta like Two Hearted... but there is just something about Founders Centennial that I think is really clean and well balanced.

I went to Founders last summer. I know the KBS gets a lot of love on beer websites... but I gotta say- everything Founders does is pretty damn awesome! Really quality brewery. And the brewpub is a great stop if you find yourself in Grand Rapids, MI.

Plus, they have parties througout the year. Just had their BLACK party, and this summer, another Founders Fest Street Party!

Now, THB, it's not really my thing. Wife and I went last year and it was hot and the beer was not cheap. But they had street performers and some very good music. If you live down that way, or are into parties with strangers, it's probably right you your alley.

The biggest thrill was trying some Oaked Maple Bourbon IIPA... And the house band was very good! We left before the headlining group though.

10% seems like alot of Carapils to me. I am trying to brew a Founders Centennial clone this weekend and I am trying to figure out an appropriate malt bill. Anyone tried this malt bill with any success or other suggestions?
