Gold Rush IPA
« on: June 07, 2013, 05:23:38 PM »
I got some notes on my Chinook IPA, and made this.  I was planning on using Chinook in here as well, but I couldn't get a hold of any.

Gold Rush IPA

10 gal into the carboys

24lb - 2-Row
1lb8oz - Crystal 60
12oz - CaraPils

2 oz Nugget Leaf(%14.1) @ 60
5 oz Citra (%13.7) @ 20
3 oz Cascade (%9.1) @ 7
5 oz Citra (%13.7) @ 7
2 oz Cascade (%9.1) @ 0
3 oz Cascade Dry Hop for 5 days

2 Packets US-05

Mashed at 153 for 60 min, Sparged at 168 for 15 min.

75% efficiency

This was my first 10 gal batch too.

That looks delicious, but honestly, I'd ditch the cara-pils.  You have plenty of grain there for body, plenty of hops for head retention and mouthfeel.  It serves no real purpose.

That said...I'd love to try it!  :shakes:

I thought of that when I was typing that post. "With that much grain, what is 12 oz of CaraPils adding to it?"

It will be at Fhilo's place for the meeting tomorrow :cheers:

You should search for a video in YouTube called Brewing on the Ones. Great ideas there.
