This recipe should get me right to the outer BJCP edge of and IPA in OG, SRM, IBU and if I can mash it correctly...the top end of the final gravity range (at 1.018).

Looking for malty sweet. I don't want to have any "seemed a bit thin" regrets when I'm sipping on this one in December.

Outer Limits IPA

Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 7.22 gal
Estimated OG: 1.075 SG
Estimated Color: 16.0 SRM
Estimated IBU: 65.6 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.0 %
Boil Time: 75 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount
11.00 lb Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
1.75 lb Munich Malt (9.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Honey Malt (25.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM)

0.75 oz Nugget [13.00%] (60 min) (First Wort Hop)
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.90%] (45 min)
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (30 min)
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.90%] (15 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [7.80%] (10 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [6.10%] (5 min)
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (0 min)

2.00 oz Glacier [5.60%] (Dry Hop 5 days)


Mash it at 154 for 45 minutes.
Toss in a slurry of Notty.



If it turns out well, I'll post up the recipe on the database...now how do you do that???

Drool.

I'd skip the 5/0 additions and dry hop the *^&@ out of it.

That beer good make.

Yeah...I reserve the right to dry hop the keg right up until the last dLop. (that's Chinese for drop)

Now I just need to find time to brew it.

I had to actually go [shiver] buy [/shiver] a couple sixers of IPA's to get my hop fix.

Have you dry hopped an IPA with Glacier before? With such an American IPA hop schedule I'm not sure your gonna be happy with what the Glacier is going to bring to the table. Tends to be very earthy.

Of course I could be wrong and it could be the best thing ever. I've never dry hopped an IPA with Glacier before.

I agree. I dryhopped an American Brown with Glacier and it was good for that style, but I'm not sure how well it will go with an IPA, as it will be more earthy and green. It's not what I normally associate with an IPA. That doesn't mean that it won't be good, but if you're shooting for the nose of most commercial examples I find that Amarillo, Simcoe and Cascade work really well.

If it were me, I would do this with the hop schedule:

1.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (First Wort Hop)
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00%] (60 min)
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.90%] (30 min)
0.75 oz Nugget [13.00%] (15 min)
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.90%] (15 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [7.80%] (10 min)
0.50 oz Cascade [6.10%] (0 min)

2.00 oz Glacier [5.60%] (Dry Hop 5 days)


Stylistically, I would assume the schedule above would blow out the IBUs, but I brew mainly for me, not judges. Any way you look at it, this should be a winner.

I did a similar style pushing IPA recently. It was very good, but finished a bit sweet for me. Some maltiness up front is good, but IMO the best IPA's finish nice and dry. I have another IPA in primary that hopefully fits the bill a bit better.
