So I have been on an IPA binge the last couple weeks and decided I want to do one for my next brew. Through tastings I have decided I like a crisp and really hoppy IPA (similar to Full Sail's IPA or Deschutes Inversion IPA if any of you have tried them)
I will be doing a full boil and would like to use steeping grains. Anyone have a good recipe?
Also to keep it light is it a good idea to add the LME or DME late in the boil?


Thanks!

This is a decent IPA, IMO.

6 lbs Light malt extract
3 lbs Amber malt extract
2 oz Centennial Hops 60 mins
2 oz Kent Goldings Hops 10 mins

5 gallons, nice and simple, and pretty tasty, too.

What would I be looking for OG and FG wise? I like that...a nice simple recipe with an easy hop schedule....Thanks for that!

Dan, Qbrew say OG should be 1.066 and FG is 1.017. 6.6% by volume.

Enjoy, Rick

Whoa, that's a nice ABV. Very cool. I'm trying to think of some steeping grains to throw in there. Can't wait to get my boil kettle and wort chiller in so I can start gathering all the ingredients.

Thanks Rick!

If your going to use steeping grains, I would say to lose the amber extract, as this would make the brew too dark. Replace it with light extract, and remember that steeping grains will add even more gravity, so perhaps 1 pound of crystal and 8 pounds of light DME, unless you want a higher OG.

This sounds pretty perfect. I am into the more hoppy IPA's as well, as I've discovered. I took the last two weeks and bought just about every IPA I could get my hands on. The only ones I really liked were really hoppy. I love the Northern Brewer as well!

Thanks!

I am really enjoying my DFH 60min IPA clone right now. The continuous hoping is slightly tricky, but not bad at all. I'd reccomend it to anyone. My thread about it is in the recipe section.

Could you post the link, please? I can't find it! Is it posted in the database? (I feel like such a moron, but I can't locate it.)
