Beer Style: American IPA  (14B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 4.5 US gallons

American IPA


This should be classified as an Imperial IPA but it didn't have the listing. It has a nice caramel head when poured and stays for a minute before settling down. The first thing you notice is the hops then the hops followed by a warm glow in the stomach. The Cascade adds that fruity note needed to carry the flavor through.

I mashed 5 Gallons at 152 F. for 60 min. Sparge with 5 gallons at 170 F. Bring to boil, add hops at the ranges. Filter into carboy. I left no leaf matter in the fermenter. Let ferment for 2 weeks in primary. Finish 1 week clearing in secondary. Add to keg or bottle with 2/3 cup table sugar. Age 2 weeks in bottle or force carbonate at will. 3 days before serving out of a keg add the hops or boiled hop solution (my preference).
