Ok guys, I want to brew an arrogant bastard-type beer or India Red Ale, if you will for the holidays. It doesn’t have to be an exact replica, just want it to be somewhat similar, or in the same style. I have done a little research and found/came-up with a couple recipes. Please take a look and let me know what you would change for each of them and which one you think would be best. Also, I am an extract brewer (haven’t made the jump to AG) and all of the recipes will be dry-hopped after primary fermentation for 7-14 days. Here they are: Recipe 1 Batch Size: 5 gal OG: 1.080 FG: 1.018 9lbs Briess Golden Light DME (90%) - 4lbs early, 5lbs late addition 1.5 lb Special B (10%) 1 oz Chinook (60) 1 oz Chinook (30) 1 oz Chinook (15) 1 oz Chinook (flameout) 2 units Irish Ale Yeast 1 Whirfloc tablet Recipe 2 Batch Size: 5 gal OG: 1.080 FG: 1.020 3.00 lb Amber D.M.E. 0.50 lb Belgian Special "B" 0.50 lb Belgian aromatic malt 0.50 lb Belgian biscuit 0.50 lb CaraMunich 5.00 lb Light D.M.E. 0.30 lb Pale Chocolate 1.00 oz Chinook(75 minutes) 1.50 oz Chinook(45 minutes) 1.00 oz Chinook(20 Minutes) 1.00 oz Chinook(flameout) 2 units Irish Ale Yeast 1 Whirfloc tablet Probably going to dry-hop with Simcoe, as I have quite a bit leftover from a previous brew. Let me know what you guys think or what you would change. Cheers!
