pale ale, India pale ale, extract
Source: P.J. Maloney (firstname.lastname@example.org),
I just finished my third IPA. All three have been wonderful, and I've
never used oak chips. For my money, the hop selection is key. May I
recommend the following.
- 8 lb. Alexander's Sun Country Pale (Klages) Extract
- 1 lb. 64l Crystal malt
- 2 tsp. gypsum
- 3/4 oz. Norther Brewer Hops (about 9.8 alpha)
- 1 oz. Cascade hops (4.6 alpha)
- 1.5 oz. Cascade hops (4.6 alpha) (dry hopping)
- Wyeast American Ale Yeast
Crack grains and steep in two quarts 150-155 degree water for 45
minutes. Collect runoff and sparge with additional 1.5 gallons water
at 170 degrees. Add malt extract & gypsum and bring to boil. Add
Northern Brew hops. After 30 minutes, add Cascades. After another 15
minutes, turn off the heat, let cool and then strain into enough cold
water to make 5 gallons. Pitch yeast once the wort's at 75 degrees.
Ferment for one week. Rack to secondary, adding 1.5 oz. Cascade at
this time. Bottle after another week. Serve very cold.
