I tried to make a relatively inexpensive IPA. While you must spend money on hops, save some by using corn sugar. Had to go with DME to get a lighter color.


  • 3 # extra pale DME
  • 3 # pale LME
  • 2 # corn sugar
  • 2 oz simcoe 10 min.
  • 2 oz sterling 10min.
  • 1 oz simcoe dry hop
  • 1 oz sterling dry hop
  • I package safale t-58

Voted best beer by my family, and I’ve been brewing for 36 years. Beautiful orangey yellow color (SRM ~8), nice hop finish, smooth. Even my non-IPA fans enjoyed it a lot. I cut the bottling sugar to 85 gm, and that seems to give the perfect level of carbonation.
Hoping I can replicate this one!
