I live in Eastern Washington and like most people from this area. I like a hoppy IPA. Two weeks ago I brewed a nice IPA and even dry hopped it but wasn't quite satisfied with the hoppieness. Any real hoppy IPA recipies out there?sweepking said:Of the beers I have made to date, my pumpkin porter turned out the best. Otto's Octoberfest is a close second. I hope my Christmas Ale beats both of them!
The Professor said:I made an IPA with Amarillo hops that was excellent. If you haven't tried them they are like a super cascade. My hop bill was as follows
For 10 gallons (cut in half for 5)
Columbus 2 oz 60 min
Amarillo 1 oz 30 min
Amarillo 1 oz 25 min
Amarillo 1 oz 20 min
Amarillo 1 oz 15 min
Amarillo 1 oz 10 min
Amarillo 1 oz 5 min
Amarillo 1 oz 0 min (steep off of the heat)
Amarillo 2 oz dry hop in secondary for 2 weeks.
Use your favorite grains/extract to make a beer or see below:
I reccomend using (for 10 gallons, use 1/2 for 5)
1.5 lb vienna malt
1.5 lb munich malt
2 lbs crystal
22 lbs 2 row barley or equivelent malt extract (16 lbs or so)
Use either california ale or Irish ale yeast.
Nice and hoppy with a great flavor and aroma. I sure delight for any hop lover.
I grew cascades last summer but I was working on a masters and didn't worry about taking care of them. This summer I will preserve enough to last a years worth of brewing. I am planning to plant another variety this spring. Haven't decided what to plant yet. But I do like hoppy beer and I want to plant something that has proven to do well in my area. Maybe I will try to find some northern brewer.The Professor said:We just got them at our homebrew shop this summer. You can usually buy a pound of them on Ebay for about 12-15 dollars. If not then maybe use half cascade and half northern brewer.
I make a rasberry flavored belgian wit using a lactic mash and 2 lbs of frozen rasberries every summer and it is about my favorite.Michael_Currie said:Mine so far is a Munich style Lager I found locally. I've brewed several batches and each turn out more tasty each time.
