so i brewed a batch last sunday, let it ferment for the last week or so and transfered it over to secondary (i filtered). I had a quick taste (pre-carbonation) and its a pretty hoppy beer, and really really tasty. Now i think mine may have turned out a little different than the original recipe due to some issues i had during my brew process, ie my kettle would fire up so i had to transfer back to my HLT, as a result i didnt have anything to filter out the trub prior to transferring to my fermenter and some hops made it in there. all in all it turned out pretty well, very drinkable. gonna let it sit and age now according to the recipe and let the flavours mellow out a bit. looking forwards to a cold one 2 weeks from now

I brewed this yesterday. OG came in a little low (1.061) because I messed up my numbers calculating for a 60 minute boil and adjusting for equipment loss with my system. I'll let you know how it turns out in a month. Thanks for sharing your recipe

One month later...

Just tapped the keg. This is a very, very good beer. Mine finished low at 1.010, even at a 62 degrees ferment. 6.7% abv. This is a nicely balanced, but dry IPA. I substituted the Chinook for Simcoe, as I couldn't find Chinook, and that worked very well.

I brewed this again (my first time doing a second on any recipes here), with some minor variations based upon what I had on hand. Am expecting good things (again!)

What a great IPA recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it. I unfortunately only brewed 5 gallons of this incredible IPA because my 10 gallon Rubbermaid mash tun can't comfortably handle the grain required to make 10 gallons. Dang. Next time I'll do 7.5 gallons as the corny keg is getting light pretty quickly. The beer is a big hit with all of my friends.

I substituted Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast with good results. I also made a yeast starter on a stir plate with 6 oz light DME to about 1800ml water.

I moved to DC over a year ago. Way too few homebrewers out here.

Not many in DC, most are in VA and Maryland. The serious brewers (and I am not as good or serious as them) belong to BURP.

Hey sorry for the newb question, but what would be the extract recipe for this? Does anyone know? Or partial mash. I love IPAs would like to do a similar recipe but I am not ready for all-grain yet. I just brewed my first batch, don't know how it turned out yet. Looking for recipes for my second batch. Thanks so much.
