so i have alot of different grains laying around as well as hops that are loosing their AA's by the day. Anyway i wanted to use all of them in some super odd superbrew so i threw this togeather. I would need 2 row and i threw some 6row in the recipe too because of all the specialty grain(i dont have experience with using 6row so please let me know if im off base). Think itd be good?

Use the ale yeast.

Drop the flaked wheat or you'll never have a clear beer.

Careful with the chocolate. Just a slight amount too much and the beer will be darker than you want. I'd do it without since you have enough crystals in there.

I like the hops additions.

Your OG borders on the high side for a regualr IPA.

Overall though, sounds like a solid start.

and i forgot- i have some saaz to throw in there too from my trippel...

Is it worth a little bit of wheat for added head? I figure i can cold crash it for a bit to get it cleared up. After all it will be sitting in my kegs for a while

i think it looks fine as is. that's not too much chocolate IMO, it'll round out the flavor and darken it up a bit, maybe a little dark for an IPA, but as long as it's tasty.

a little caravienne goes a long way, that should add some very nice maltiness.

i would add the saaz in at the end, it will soften the flavors.
looks good :mug:

I'd get rid of the centennial, the hallertaaur, the saaz, the cara vienna, the wheat, and the chocolate...other than that it looks great!


Thas just what I would do, its your beer though.

Most malts with a low diastatic power, still have enough enzymes to self convert. Specialty grains like crystal don't need any enzymes, since thay have already been converted by the maltster, and most other specialty grains will have enough diastatic power to self convert. 6-row is used when there is a high portion (over 20%) of adjuncts like corn or rice in the brew, because those adjuncts contain no enzymes.

I'd change up the hop schedule to get more citrus flavor/aroma from the Centennial. You'll need to check the IBU's, though, to see if this gives you enough.

0.25 oz. Willamette Whole 5.00 60 min.

0.25 oz. Willamette Whole 5.00 10 min.
0.50 oz. Hallertauer Whole 4.00 10 min.

0.25 oz. Centennial Whole 10.50 0 min.

i'll second the hop additions change. no reason for that 30 minute addition. maybe find some carafa II laying around and make a black ipa.

upped the grain to accomidate 5.5 gal batch (i figure ill lose a bit to hop absorption) and got rid of 6-row. I guess i misunderstood the use of it. As for more chocolate to make a black ipaif i had carafa i would throw it in to make things interesting but im thinking the chocolate will impart too much smoke flavor.

You start out by saying that you already want to make this recipe. Since you want to make it you want to like it too. It will turn into beer no matter what you do. Probably good beer. Your buddies will all say it's the best beer they've had since your last homebrew, and may well be. Why the heck not?

i obviously dont want it to suck but typically all these types of hops and grains are not nessesarily used in conjunction. Its going to be an odd brew but i dont wanna WASTE the grains. i figured i tweak and keep checking back. Either way im gona throw in what i was told on here. Brewing this next week. ill repost on how it comes out

just to update, this got brewed and ended up as a malty IPA....it wasnt dark enough to be considered black and the flavor isnt all that cohesive. Its drinkable for sure but i cant help wishing i would have pulled out the biscut. The munich comes through ALOT for some reason.... Pitched the wlp001. Its drinkable and i might actually enjoy it, but its not something i would brew again....well see how it ages
