Beer Style: American IPA
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
I got the name from using 4 Hops that all start with the Letter C, very clever... This brew ended up Citrusy with a Clean Finish. Very Hoppy but doen't have a Bite to it. The color is a Golden Copper Haze, because I chose not to use any Finings like Irish Moss. The aroma is Citrusy, Grapefruity.
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: 1.012
Alcohol by Vol: 5.24%

Yield: 5.00 US Gallons
I do a very simple procedure...
Heat 2 Gals to 165, then steep Vienna and Crystals for 30 mins
Remove Grains and add DME and heat to a Boil
5 mins after boil, begin adding Hops add intended intervals
After 60 mins, turn off heat and cover, Prepare Ice Bath
I like to have 2 gals of Ice Cold Water from my Freezer ready in the Fermenter, before I add the Wort. Then I throw in some Ice, and a Freezer Pack (after being sanitized) and then fill the Fermenter up with more Ice Cold Water. (I havent invested in any cool toys like Wort Chillers)
Bring the temp down to reccommended Levels (Below 80) and pitch Yeast. I didnt use a starter, but i am sure it wouldnt hurt.
I have the luxury of a Converted Freezer Chest to store my Fermenter. I Fermented at 58 to reduce any esters being produced. (I am going to try 65 next time to see if there is a difference)
I brewed this a couple of months ago and it came out Great. I have a few Friends that love IPS's and asked me to take a shot at it and I got great reviews and will continue to Brew this year round to keep in stock.
