    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    @secretlevel I wash them in hot soapy water first to remove residues and rinse before use. I dont get any metallic smell and have never had that taste in any beers in 30+ brews. This is an old "trick" that I found here somewhere. They are stainless steel so you could through them in PBW too...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    @Noob_Brewer get two stainless steel scrubbies that look like below. ($3) at grocery store. Make sure it is the kind that looks coiled. Stick fingers through center of one, stretch it open and insert the second one inside. Stick finger in the center scrubby to open enough so you can slip it...

    No oxygen dry hopping

    @jturman35 @mkblackmart @murphyslaw @duelerx here are the images. Again smaller sized so hopefully will come through. My Process/setup is similar to @mcl posted after me. Here is what I have learned / changed after 9 batches - tgis only works if you spund. Dont need the balllock pressure...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    If you can do a split batch I recommend the following to see which you prefer. Both options do this: Add a soft crash to 58* to remove some yeast after FG before final hops; use ferm gases to purge your serving kegs of oxygen; do a closed transfer. Option 1: move your ALL of your day 3 hops...

    Best NEIPA hop combos

    Dont fear the hops dropping - they always drop regardless of temp. (See attached 76* on left, 36* on the right). Extraction of the compounds continue even while at the bottom because the liquid is still in contact with the hop material. Similar to @couchsending I have been dry hopping at this...

    Correct. I am usually around 6.7% ABV - 9oz, but my efficiency is higher or yeast are hungrier and ABV hits 7% I will add another ounce to the dryhop.

    Absolutely can use Motueka in DH - I prefer in low quantity though so that that it blends. In a six gal batch I typically use 9-10oz pellets, for motueka I would use 1.5-2oz of the blend. NHC Entry Boil: None WP: 3oz each: Citra, Bravo, I7 180* for 30min (65IBUs) DH - soft crash to 58* 24hrs...

    Best NEIPA hop combos

    Motueka is the heaviest hitter for lime of all the hops I have tried. In the dry hop, in my experience, the lime can be over powering - even alongside mosaic & galaxy (similar to sabro with wood flavor). It has its place but not on the cold side for me (except my quarantine beer I just...

    Best NEIPA hop combos

    Here is my suggestion based on what you have Whirlpool: Motueka, CTZ, Strata (equal parts) Dry Hop: Citra Cryo, Mosaic Cryo, Riwaka (1:1:2 - so equates to equal parts using pellets) Sidebar - Citra, I7, and Bravo or Simcoe (all three equal parts) is the absolute best whirlpool blend I have...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Caution on leaving PRV open - if the beer is carbonated at all (aka spunded) it will foam during the transfer if the PRV is open. In my experience (I always spund) briefly venting the keg via PRV while filling minimizes the foam and allows me to get a full keg.
