    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    My latest batch, a "kitchen sink NEIPA". Usually I'll use 2 or 3 hops, this time I went for 7 just for fun. I chose Simcoe, CTZ, and Mosaic on the hot side after reading Janish's survivables article. I like the idea of getting "danker base" to build off of, and save the brighter fruitier...

    Everything but kitchen sink NEIPA

    Any reason you're not doing a whirlpool? I would throw at least 3-4 oz into the whirlpool and then 6-8 oz in the dry hop. I actually just brewed a kitchen sink NEIPA myself. I've had good results with CTZ, Mosaic and Simcoe in the whirlpool and Amarillo, Citra, Idaho 7 and Strata in the dry...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Last time I dry hopped around 50 degrees, they all dropped to the bottom of the carboy right away. Aroma was less pungent than my typical batch. I think it could work if you have a way of suspending or rousing the hops, but since then I always raise back up to 60-65 degrees before dry hopping.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    This is good stuff. I stuff crashed before the first addition though, so I'm really just wondering if it's worth doing a second time.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Anyone doing their dry hop in two separate additions and soft crashing in between? I decided to split my dry hop but I'm not sure if its worth trying to get the first dry hop out of suspension first or not.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    1. Oxygen is all I can really think of but it sounds like you've got that under control... another thing you could try is to brew the Trillium Melcher Street clone. I think there is something about that 100% CTZ whirlpool and big fruity dry hop (doesn't have to be Mosaic) that really brings...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I've used Juice ~20 times and Barbarian ~10 times. Both great, but I give Juice the slight edge. Only other yeast I've used in a NEIPA was Sacch Trois once and I let it ferment in the mid-upper 70's, but I wasn't a fan of the intense bubblegum esters.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I have not but I'm actually very intent on using Simcoe a lot more in my IPAs, so I will keep that combo in mind. Thanks!

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    They're not ranked within each category, except for the 1st which was my all time favorite. Pretty much anything that includes Columbus uses the Trillium Melcher St recipe which is all Columbus in the boil and whirlpool, 1 oz of Columbus in the dry hop and 6.5 oz of the other hop in the dry hop.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Also here is an updated tally of the 24 NEIPA hop combos I've tried so far. I ranked them from 1 (favorite) to 5 (least favorite). Keep in mind I've changed more than just the hops on each of these brews, so take it with a grain of salt. Rank Hop Combo 1 Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Very good points, I shared those specific combos because they are the ones that have won me medals. I actually have since dialed my 60 min addition down to 20 IBU and I like the difference, although both have been good. I think there's definitely something to be said for layering hop flavor...

    Italian Pilsner Discussion

    I'm drinking this now and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. This has actually gotten me closer to the pilsner I want to drink on a regular basis, regardless of what you want to call it. Its simply hoppier and more exciting. Aroma is that of a really fresh German Pils, with just a...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I don't think dry hopping on day 11 is too late, I would probably do that rather than rush it. Crashing on day 5 seems too soon. I find myself in this situation sometimes for similar reasons, and usually I'll just dry hop without a soft crash. Not ideal, but the beer always turns out well.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Anyone have good luck with a kitchen sink NEIPA? I always pick 1 to 3 hops, but I thought it would be fun to try a whole bunch for once (I see a lot of really good Modern Times beers with 5-6 hops). Current plan is equal parts Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo, CTZ, Simcoe, and Idaho 7.

    Lazy Lagering?

    My lagers are usually ready in 4 weeks. 2 weeks to ferment at 50 degrees, ramping up to 65 towards the end. And then 2 weeks to lager and carb at the same time around 38 degrees. It might come down to the yeast though... I haven't used S-23, but I have noticed that 34/70 takes about a week...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I brewed an IPA (disclaimer: its a west coast) using this logic for the first time. Usually for either style I'll bitter at 60, one big whirlpool addition, and one big dry hop addition. This time I split it into way more additions and I'm curious to see if it actually adds more depth or maybe...

    Italian Pilsner Discussion

    I'll report back in a few weeeks for sure. I don't recall the exact AA on my hops, I just used the Beersmith default of 4.0% and 4.5% for Hallertauer and Tettnang respectively. I've used the same water profile in all four pilsners I've brewed so far and have been happy with it, crisp but not...

    Italian Pilsner Discussion

    I brewed this up as my first attempt on an Italian Pilsner, I'll be kegging in a few days. I may have gone overboard on the hops, but when I was putting the recipe together I decided I'd risk going too big rather than not big enough. I've never had a pilsner I thought was too hoppy. Also, for...
