"Cleaning Out The Closet" IPA - Requesting advice

Recommended Posts

I just moved to a new house, and wanted to use up my old beer ingredients before placing another order. Here's what I was thinking:

2.4 Gallon Batch
2 lb Briess Traditional Dark DME (1.043)
1 lb Briess Sparkling Amber DME (1.043)
.5 lb Carapils, Steeped

Yeast harvested from Bell's Oberon (Same yeast as their Amber Ale, Best Brown Ale, and Two-Hearted Ale I believe), stepped up using stir plate.

60 minutes 0.5 oz Northern Brewer pellets 8.0% AA
45 minutes 0.25 oz Cascade pellets 5.0% AA
30 minutes 0.25 oz Cascade pellets 5.0% AA
15 minutes 0.25 oz Cascade pellets 5.0% AA
0 minutes 0.25 oz Cascade pellets 5.0% AA

QBrew gives me the following info:
IBU 52 SRM 14
OG 1.056 FG 1.014
ABV 5.5%

The other option would be to leave out the Northern Brewer hops and go for a more malty, less hoppy beer, but I'd probably also have to modify boil times.

EDIT: I also have 1 oz of Hallertauer 4.6% AA that could be thrown into the mix

What you got there looks good...

I love Hallertau but it would be out of style for what looks like a darker IPA...

Looks good though!

Let us know how it comes out!

:cheers:

I went with the original recipe, and hit 1.057 OG. It's krausening out of control, I had to loosen the lid this morning to prevent an explosion. Smells amazing, will let you know how it turns out in 6 weeks or so.
