Still need to work this out but hoping if I post this I'll actually follow through :P

 

  • Verdant IPA yeast
  • Golden Promise for the base and probably some light crystal but nothing too crazy
  • Hops will be a combo of chinook, citra, bravo, and azacca
  • OG of about 1.060-1.065
  • minimal IBUs
  • dry hopped

Looks good. I just made a tasty one with Hornindal yeast and a Citra/Vic Secret hop combo. I'll be making another shortly for some family who are coming in mid June. I'm going to try out the Cryp Pop hops in that.

I would add some wheat in the base grain bill but that is because I have a metric ton to use up.  Looks delicious to me.  I would most likely keep the water about 100/100 and enjoy the hell out of it.

I think I have some I should probably use up. Probably just 5lb or so. Might toss some in.

Don't flounce or anything because I'm going to need your tips this summer when I use the Voss kviek dry yeast I've got in the fridge.

just measured grain:

 

22lb GP

2.5 lb white wheat

0.5 lb C15

0.5 lb C20

 

I could have used all C15 but I was trying to use up the C20 after finishing a bag of C15.

 

OG should be 1.065-1.070 :P

hops:

 

0.5oz Bravo @ 30

2oz chinook, 1oz citra, 1oz bravo @ flameout

2oz chinook, 2oz citra, 0.5oz bravo, 3oz azacca hop stand

 

dry hop I'm not sure yet.  I think I'm going to maybe just do this one in the serving kegs.  probabably a similar amount as the hop stand per keg.

I have I think 10 lbs of golden promise I need to use (bought after you all want its praises). Maybe in my next IPA.

It is good stuff. One of my favorite pro Brewers uses it almost exclusively for his ales apparently.

Voss is ok but for a hoppy, fruity, IPA, I prefer Hornindal yeast. Hornindal has made some of my best tropical IPAs. Regardless of what you use, ferment it hot - real hot. 90's is good.

Just in case I flounce or go underground for awhile. :)

I got them both to about 90.

 

What mash pH would you shoot for on a beer like this?  my default is 5.3 for pretty much everything except occasionally on a darker/roasty beer I'll let it creep up to 5.4 or 5.5.

Golden Promise is simply a malt variety.  What the maltsters do with is what makes the difference.  For instance, I find Simpson's GP is very different from Fawcett GP..  Saying "I'm using Golden Promise" is kinda like saying "I'm eating food".

I agree different malters have variation but it should be less of a difference versus some other general malt type. I'll admit I haven't tried a variety of GP (just TF as far as I can remember) but I have tried a variety of other types of malt (pilsner, Munich, Marris otter) and in general they have more in common across brands then not.

so you think that best malz munich is more different than some other brand of munich compared to best malz pilsner?  they are all kind of shooting for the same ballpark with these types of malt.

huh, mash pH was much higher than predicted at 5.5+.  added an additional 3.2mL of lactic to see what this will do.  I'm assuming lactic effects things pretty much immediately upon mixing it in.  if this doesn't drop it a lot I'm just going to say f it and leave it alone.

damn, I wouldn't think 2.5lb of wheat would make for a slow drain of the mash tun but this one took a llllooooonnnnggg time.  finally chilling now even though I started heating my water at 5:30AM :-/
