This beer was excellent. I was able to pass it around to many folks who weren't IPA fans and they thought it was pretty good. So my "stats": OG: 1.069 FG: 1.007 Yeast: Safale US-05 (1 packet) ABV(calc'd): 6.7 So when the directions say to take your time with the fly sparge... DO IT. I calculated what I thought was a flow rate that would take an hour. When I came out, and saw that my HLT was still half full, I panicked and increased the flow rate. Fortunately I checked the OG before I did and it was around 1.065 pre boil. The final pre-boil OG was 1.056.... womp womp... I would recommend letting a slow sparge take its course, don't rush it. I might have been lucky and had a universal favorite due to the lower ABV. I think the grain bill and the hops contributed to an excellent beer. Those of you seeking a high ABV will still enjoy this, whereas those of you wanting something to share with friends may create a great all around ale that non-IPA fans will still enjoy. WILL DEFINITELY BUY AGAIN. 'Nuff said.
I just kegged the beer last week and pulled the first pint yesterday. It's a great tasting IPA with a good color. I prefer a little more hop aroma, and would add a second dry hop addition next time I make this. Also, the yeast listed in the instructions does not match the yeast on the order page. I used a white labs 001 California Ale yeast, while the instructions called for a 005 British Ale yeast. 001 is what I typically use for my IPA's, but I'd be interested to see what characters the 005 adds the next time I make it.
This is a very good tasting hop combo. I ground the grain finer for BIAB and came close to the numbers. I kegged it. I will brew this one again for sure!
Freshly tapped kegged taste, was really good. Dry hop bag opened in secondary so bits floating but I'm going to love this and brew in rotation for sure. Thanks AiH!
