Currently on a quest to perfect a beer recipe I've had in my mind for a long time; a dead-simple Simcoe singlehop IPA using conan yeast. This is a PicoBrew recipe, so actual outcomes may vary slightly from its calculations. Peace Walker (Version 1.0) American IPA (New England/Vermont style) All Grain Batch size: 2.5 gallons OG - 1.0664 FG - 1.0133 ABV - 6.9% SRM - 15 IBU - 66 Efficiency Target - 80% Grain Bill: 8 lbs American 2-Row 1 lb American Crystal 60L Hop Bill: .25 oz Simcoe @ 40min .5 oz Simcoe @ 20min 1 oz. Simcoe @ 10min 1.25oz. Simcoe @ 1min 1 oz. Simcoe dry hop @ 3 days in fermenter Yeast - Yeast Bay Vermont ale ("Conan") Water - 3.8 gallons 1 campden tablet during heatup 1/2 whirlfloc tablet @ 10min Mashed @ 152F for 60min. No sparge (PicoBrew RIMS system) Boil time - 40min. @ 207F Fermentation time: 14 days Kegged; carbonated with rolling keg method for 1min @ 30PSI Results: I'm a retard and didn't use a mesh bag or anything when I dry hopped, so my keg dip tube got clogged with hop sludge. Had to re-keg and re-carbonate. Despite this farkup, it turned out pretty damn good. I definitely used WAY too much crystal; it's a bit diffcult to carbonate and throws a buttload of foam at me. Actually that's probably just my kegging/dispensing ineptitude (dispensing from a picnic tap hose in my fridge). The taste, however, is pretty on point for what I was going for; crushably sweet grapefruit on the nose and on the taste, with mild bitterness and a complimentary malt backing. Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out, but will continue futzing with this recipe. For version 2.0, will probably switch out the 2-row for golden promise, cut down a bit on the crystal (and use a lighter crystal), and add some oats. Sticking with the hop bill as is unless you other, likely more experienced homebrewers, have suggestions. Anyway, cheers!
