I was working on a recipe that I'd appreciate some input on from the veterans, before I spend the $$ and fermenter time!

The concept is a black IPA that is:
1. thin/light in texture and mouthfeel (from extra light DME),
2. very dark color (from low quantity of black malt. don't want too much to limit malt flavor addition),
3. dry finish (hoping the dextrose helps here)

Small Batch (2.5g):
  • 8 oz Black malt (steeped in a gallon at ~148*F)
  • 2.5 lb extra light DME
  • 6 oz dextrose

Hops:
  • 0.4 oz Warrior (60 min)
  • 1/3 oz Cascade (15 min)
  • 1/3 oz Cascade (5 min)
  • 1/4 oz Cascade (dry hop)

California Ale Yest (WLP001)

Primary for 2 weeks
  • 1/3 oz dried Juniper Berries in secondary for 2 weeks

keg; enjoy

OG 1.057
FG 1.01
ABV 6.1%
IBU 59


thanks in advance for any input
