Notes

Going to try introducing 3 things: 1) first wort hopping, 2) waiting longer in primary before dry hopping 3) using a secondary vessel.

Recipe adjustments: More bittering. VERY late addition hops. Ease off on the Amarillo tiger.

I want to make a super clear but pungent IPA of the style we enjoy in San Diego. Simple malt bill, clean bittering, and all late addition hops of Centennial for flavor, and Amarillo for the nose.

Steps:

  • Brew beer & ferment.
  • Wait 2 more weeks
  • Transfer to secondary & dry hop.
  • Wait 3 days
  • Dry hop again
  • Wait 3 days
  • Keg & add gelatin.
  • Carb up the keg

    ==== 2/8/14 ====
  • Well, here goes again. This time I did 13lb 2-row, 1lb Carapils, 1lb C10.
  • Got some belgian 550 to mix it up and do a belgian ipa.
  • Going to ferment at 66º then raise it to 68º after the first couple weeks.
  • Going to wait 3 full weeks before transfering to secondary and dry hopping.
  • Using all fresh hops from the store (not from my freezer) and not going to freeze them. Just putting them in the fridge.
  • Also trying first wart hopping.
  • Also bumped the boil from 60 to 90.
  • OG: 1.065 (hydro reading. Dead on)
  • Blunder: I did mix up my final hops. So I added 1oz Cent and 1oz Amarillo at the 5min mark, then 1 oz Amarillo at the 0 min mark.
