TCB Everyday IPA

Recipe by: Taft Canyon Brewers
10 Gallon Batch

22 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row)
1.5 lbs Acidulated Malt 10L
1lb Biscuit Malt
1lb Vienna Malt
.5lbs Honey Malt

2 oz Nugget Whole Leaf 13%AA (60 minutes)
2 oz Nugget Whole Leaf 13%AA (10 minutes)
2 oz Centennial Whole Leaf 9.5%AA (15 minutes)
2 oz East Kent Goldings (EKG) Mt. 6.3%AA (5 minutes)
2 oz Citra Whole Leaf (Dry Hop) – to base beer (3 days in fermenter)
1 Tsp Hop Tech Cascade hop oil  – to batch with Clarity Ferm

Yeast: Equinox Brewing Company American Ale Yeast (fresh)

Did not add Whirfloc, instead split the batch into two 5-gallon batches and added Clarity Ferm (White Labs) to 1.2 to see what happens.

Mash Steps:

 151 degrees for 60 minutes

90 Minute Boil

Fermentation Temperature: 68 degrees

Original Gravity: 1.062 (I missed my target of 1.068)
IBUs: 66
Final Gravity:1.012
Final ABV: 6.6%

Notes: Nugget hops were acquired by a friend from New Belgium Brewing Company – AA% is based on default in BeerSmith. Grain bill in recipe is identical to the CBB HopRocket IPA recipe from Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine’s Spring 2014 issue. I mixed up the hops and did not use a hop rocket for this batch. Primary fermentation took forever on this (8 days). Neither version of the beer was clear going into the secondary fermenters.

Brewed: February 26, 2015
Racked: March 23, 2015 (Dry-hopped)
Kegged: April 2, 2015
