Hop Fool! [Based on Hop Fu! by Kelsey McNair (see Zymurgy, Sept./Oct. 2014, pp. 58, 68)] West Coast IPA (on the thin border between IPA and IIPA) All Grain 5 gallons into keg Target Parameters Target OG: 1.067 Target FG: 1.011 (Mash low, boys and girls; I'll probably shoot for 149 F for 90 min) Target ABV: 7.4% Target IBUs: 118 (Tinseth, calculated value only with no accounting for saturation of alpha acids) Target SRM: 7 Grain Bill (exact amounts should be adjusted based on system efficiency) 92% Rahr 2-Row 3.6 L 3% Patagonia Crystal 35 L 3% Caramel Pils 10 L Hops 1 oz Chinook 12% (First Wort Hopping) (90 minute boil total) 2 oz Belma 12% (60 min) 1 oz Columbus 16% (30 min) 1 oz Simcoe 13% (10 min) 1 oz Amarillo 8% (10 min) 1 oz Simcoe 13% (0 min) 1 oz Amarillo 8% (0 min) 1 oz Citra 14% (0 min) 1 oz Centennial 9% (0 min) 1 oz Columbus 16% (0 min) + 15 minute hop stand at 185 F (no extra hops added) Dry Hops 2 oz Centennial 2 oz Simcoe 2 oz Amarillo (Following Hop Fu! schedule, which comes from Vinny Cilurzo) Yeast Wyeast 1187 (Ringwood). This should be the preference of the brewer. I wanted to do an IPA with something other than the canonical Chico yeast. Wort transferred directly onto the yeast cake from a previous APA. Water ~11 gallons RO total, treated as indicated Mash: 4.5 gallons RO treated with 1 gm CaCl and 9 gm CaSO4 plus 1 oz Weyermann Acid Malt. Predicted mash pH is 5.42 (using MpH Calculator) Sparge: 5.5 gallons RO (following Hop Fu! lead here) Additional: Added as needed to bring pre boil volume up to required amount to hit target post-boil volume. Notes This beer is still to be brewed. I'll report back later on how this comes out.
