Single Hop IPA recipes? (First All Grain)

Discussion in 'Homebrewing' started by BigCheese, Sep 17, 2012.

  1. So my buddy just got new brew equipment so that we can brew All Grain, very pumped.

    We wanted to do a single Hop IPA. I was leaning towards Amarillo as I've yet to use it in a brew and want to see what kinda flavors it brings for me. Was also considering Simcoe or Centennial.

    Thinking Something along the lines of 6-7%, ~65 IBU, with a hefty serving of late boil hops and a week of dry hopping.

    Any recipes or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You want a single hop IPA recipe from him? I don't think so - there are bittering hops and then there are flavor/aroma hops, silly.

    I've got a pretty decent one.... Would hold up with a single hop easily. Nice sweetness, nice base. I enjoy it a fair bit and get compliments and requests for it. Nice and bready to hold up to tons of hops if you want.

    Do a 60, 15, 5, 0 addition, figure out the IBU's to the way you like them. Use a simple 1056 or US05.

    Mash for 60 @ 151*.. Should be in the neighborhood of 1.070-ish.. 1.072 or so.. Finish around 1.012/1.010 or so I guess..
