i've used vienna as the base malt for many of my recipes. it makes a great steam beer, and this weekend i'll be making a vienna alt with a friend.

the first time i made this SMaSH recipe it was honestly one of the best beers i'd ever tasted.

Was this still a stove top? At almost six gallons, I'd never get a boil on my range.

yes, it works ok on mine. i can get a light rolling boil for anything 6 gallons or less.

BUT, if you cannot get a boil, you can just leave the wort in the TWO pots and split the hops accordingly. like i did with my RIS 08/08/08:

Vienna as the base malt makes an absolutely AMAZING hoppy beer. So does Maris Otter. Both are about 3-4 SRM.

I keep babbling about wanting to do a vienna/summit SMaSH IPA, but I still can't find summit hops for under $4 an ounce. I need 7 ounces.

So, I read this and feel jealous. Gets me thinking, what can I do to get more heat from the stovetop. I pop the top off and find the orifice. In a stroke of genius (maybe not), bigger is better goes through my head. I keep stepping it up slowly until the only drill size jumps from .047 to .052. Why not? Well now I have a huge flame with too much gas and not enough air.

Anyone got one of those drills that makes the hole smaller

I think you need an air bit.

LOL. Well I want to do it as a 20 minute IPA. There is just something you can't beat about an IPA where all the hops are dumped in for the last few minutes of the boil... It's like rolling around in a field of hops.

So, something like
1oz 0:20
2oz 0:10
2oz 0:00 Flameout
2oz Dry Hop
then?

I hear ya, I can't wait to find some cheap Summit someday, cuz that hop is teh bees knees! I'd do about the same 7oz hopping schedule for Amarillo, too, for the record. 7oz Late Hop Amarillo IPA would be bad-ass!
