So I'm assuming that all the hops are pellet due to your picture?

thanks for the recipe. I'm looking to perfect an IPA recipe to always have on tap. I'll give this a try soon.

Could White Labs #007 (Dry English Ale) be substituted for the Safale-04, and still be close to the original finished product?

That would be a good substitute. Just pitch it cool and give it plenty of time in the primary (3-4 weeks at least).

I brewed this yesterday. Despite some equipment problems, the brew went pretty smooth. I miscalculated my boil-off rate and ended up with nearly 6 gallons of 1.070 wort in the carboy.

I discovered that the valve on the output of my March pump had a small crack in it. I was super bummed. We recently had tempt drop below 0 for a prolonged time, and there must have been some water trapped in it. I think I lost about a quart of sweet wort through the duration of the mash.

I'm trying White Labs WLP-051 California Ale V. I love trying new yeasts, and it is supposed to be good for IPAs.

Will post back in a couple of months with comments on my results.

Prost!

Sorry...yeah. I only use pellets. Buying multiple varieties in bulk is easier in pellet form. Plus...they was down my shop sink easier.

My gravity is stuck at 1.032 took a reading a week ago and now a week later still stuck there? Any ideas because that's a little to high for my taste from staring at 1.062.

Rouse the yeast? What yeast did you use? Agitate it a bit? Warm it up a bit? I used White Labs California Ale V and went from 1.070 to 1.015.

Yep. Step that ambient temp up to 70 degrees and get a racking cane in there and stir up that yeast (gently).
