    Hi all,

    I've been out of the game a while, but have recently gotten back into it by showing a mate a few extract brews. After getting the basics down, he'd like to go partial with a well balanced IPA, so came up with the recipe below.

    Would be great to get some feedback and reasoning behind any suggested changes.

    Any amount of help is appreciated.

    Cheers
    Rob

    my only input would be drop the DME and go another 2kg.of grain your going to mash anyway so just throw some more grain in:) oh and if preboil doesnt meet required gravity from lower mash efficiency then use your DME to crrect it here. looks like a nice malty/hoppy IPA beer other than that.

    That's a good idea, so pretty much go all grain, and add in DME where required to meet OG.

    Cheers for the suggestion

    How are you going to mash?

    With a lower ~2 L/kg due to more grain? Still in a bag. Or are you asking something completely different...

    Love Columbus and Simcoe!! I would maybe first wort with Columbus and save the Simcoe for a 20 minute addition. I find that it adds a depth of flavor when it's used in the middle of the boil. That's going to be a nice danky IPA. Very similar to my preferred house IPA.

    no was just wonderkng which merhod you take when mashing. if mashing in a bag grind up them.grains finer it will give you better extraction and if you can sparge thw grain bag some to fet that few more points of gravity. good luck

    use the quick water requirements in recipie to determine water needed too;)
