I brewed this fantastic recipe 2.5 months ago. The keg was long gone, but I still have a few bottles. Cracked one last night and it was even better than I remembered! Awesome beer!

Damn. Just found the,.25 of wheat I was supposed to use with this. Hope it didn't make a huge difference

I take every opportunity to substitute chinook also ;-)

Don't worry about the lack of a 60minute hop addition. The bitterness is spot on.

This IPA won gold in the IBU challenge at the IBU Open in Iowa earlier this year and gold at 8 Seconds of Froth a few months ago.

If you brew, let me know what you think.


so you had to use 2 viles of yeast for a 5 gallon batch?

im scaling up to 10 gallons and using wyeast 1056.......still think ill need 4 bags then?

Thanks in advance

Cheers!

I no longer use multiple bags/vials...I always make starters now. I highly recommend starters. You can use the mr.malty calculator to figure out how much yeast you should use.

Got all the supplies to make 10gal this weekend. It's been a while since I've done this brew. My technique has come leaps and bounds from last time I made this recipe. I'm excited for the results. What does everyone's preference seem to be dry hopping vs not? I may just split this into 2x5gal secondaries and dry hop one. Anyone have thoughts on how long out until ideal flavor is reached? If I can stand it, I may try and reserve a few bottles for the 6 and 12 month marks.

Some brewers claim that you can't make a true IPA without dry hopping. ;-)

As for cellering, in my opinion, the fresher this is, the better. 12 months will mellow this (just like any beer) but I prefer it crisp and lively.

I know this will fade a bit in fermentation but 2oz to dry hop seems like a lil much. And I'm a huge hop head
Dry hopping is primarily for aroma, so don't worry about it :P
