I've been busy trying to make the perfect IPA. Here's my latest recipe.
- 9 pounds, Pale Malt
- 3/4 pound, Crystal Malt
- 1/2 pound, Carapils Malt
- 1--1/2 ounce, (4.9%) Kent Goldings (60 Minutes)
- 1--1/2 ounce, (4.9%) Kent Goldings (15 Minutes)
- 1/4 ounce, Kent Goldings (dry)
- 1 teaspoon, Irish Moss (15 Minutes)
- 2 teaspoons, Gypsum
- 2 ounces, Oak Chips
- Wyeast 1059 American Ale
Mash Pale malt at 153 F for 30-60 minutes. Test after 30 minutes. Add
Crystal and Carapils and mash-out at 168 F for 10 minutes. Sparge. Bring
to boil. In a saucepan, boil the oak for no more than 10 minutes, then
strain the liquid into your boiling kettle. Boil the wort, adding
boiling hops after 30 minutes and the flavor hops and Irish Moss after
75 minutes. Chill and pitch a quart of 1059 starter.
Dry hop in the secondary fermenter. The beer will clear in the bottle.
