I brewed again this weekend trying to build up my stock after the three year hiatus. I started with the Dead Ringer IPA recipe from Northern Brewer, but went a bit higher on malt color and extract amount. The name is from the single hop that I used with a bit of a stretch (Centennial = 100, Benjamin Franklin on $100) and I’m dry hopping as well as using a well attenuating yeast (Safale US-05), of which I pitched two packets.
I’m fermenting in a 7.5gal carboy and will rack after a week into a 5gal carboy for a two or three week secondary before bottling.
The recipe I used is:
- 9 lbs 8 oz Pale Liquid Extract (Breiss bulk)
- 1 lb Crystal Malt (60°L) for 30 minutes at 160
- 1 oz Centennial (9%) for 1 hour
- 1 oz Centennial (8.7%) for 20 minutes
- 2 oz Centennial (8.7% for 5 minutes
- 22 g Safale US-05 (two packets)
I will dry hop with:
- 1 oz Centennial (8.7%) after racking to secondary
My OG was 1.062 (down from an expected 1.067 which may be because I was a bit over 5 galons to the primary).
