Here is what I plan to brew tomorrow. It is essentially a 6 gallon version of Tasty's longshot winner with a different hop schedule. This would be my biggest beer to date. Any thoughts:

It looks good to me. I would mash lower, but I am not a Long Shot winner!

I have never mash hopped, I just cannot bring myself to do it. I would rather use the hops later in the boil or dry hop.

When I made my Pliny clone, I mashed at 152, it worked out well.

I would use US-05 for a dry yeast, it is a beast on big beers and will ferment it out dry. I am not saying notty is not a good choice, I have just had GREAT results with 05 in bigger beers.

I think you will end up wanting to add more dry hops in the end, but you can decide on that later.

148 is what I would use, maybe 150. But what Tasty says is he likes the body and such he gets from his higher temp. Perhaps stick with his recipe first and then adapt according to what you like.

I will most likely be upping the dry hop schedule. I think I have another couple of ounces of simcoe in the freezer, just cant find them yet. The recipe should have the simcoe addition as whole hops and the 2 ounces will be going in my hopback. Ideally, I would like to to dry hop with an 2 ounces of of each simcoe and amarillo.

I list 153F on the recipe because that's what I mash this beer at. This temperature can create a fermentation challenge so I pay close attention to pitch size, aeration (multiple days), and fermentation temperature. I'll rouse the fermentor as the fermentation slows and raise the temperature to about 72F (from 68F) once it's 90% fermented.

If your having trouble getting the desired attenuation in your other beers, I'd definitely lower the mash temperature.

You may also consider decreasing the base malt and increasing the amount of sugar up to 5% of the fermentables.

Note that this recipe is really not a Double IPA. It's more like a tripple IPA or if it doesn't attenuate, a Barleywine. I make another version that's 1.080 which I've grown to like better.

Now I'd better get back to the BN forum.

Tasty
