American IPA Brewed with All Simpsons Malt

June 19th, 2017

So I have all this Simpson’s pale malt now.   I will brew this IPA and then I will brew a third run at the Fuller’s Golden pride in which I’ll reduce the Crystal by half again.

Used Brewer’s Friend to try and further rehabilitate my water since I got my report back from Ward labs.    My IPAs are always hit and miss.   They’re always pretty good but sometimes they’re phenomenal and win awards at Dixie Cup or Clash of the Carboys.   Generally the same recipe but now I’m paying closer attention to total oil content on hops as well as trying to remove water as a somewhat unknown.   The hop additions will be all whirlpool.   All that being said this beer is very much a new approach.

In addition to the recipe below I will be adding an ounce or two of Ariana hops which are said to add a big fruity note as a dry hop.

Update 6/22/2017

So I’m not going to trust my memory for hop inventory anymore.  Ended up having to sub out hops.   All whilrpool.  2 ounces each of Centennial, Mosaic and Citra.    Still going to stick with my dry hop plan.   Brew day went well overall.
