Recipe Notes:
1. Fill keg with cold water to the 4-quart mark on the back.
2. Place unopened cans of HME hot water to make the liquid easier to pour.
3. Place 1/2 oz. of Cascade pellet hop, divided, into the 2 hop sack tying it closed then trim away excess material.
4. Using the sanitized measuring cup, place 5 cups of water into a clean pot mixing in Golden Light DME and bring to 210*, then:
- add Cascade hops, boil for 10 minutes
- add Cascade hops, boil 2 minutes and remove from heat.
5. Stir HME into this water. Mix and allow to cool.
6. Pour wort into keg. Bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously to mix well.
7. Sprinkle yeast into keg and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes when temp is below 74*. Stir vigorously again, then screw on lid.
8. After primary fermentation (4-8 days) add 1/2 oz. Columbus pellets into hop sack, and dry hop until cold crash.

Looks good! Only thing I see is that your hop boil schedule is different in the recipe and instruction steps. The recipe has 22 minutes and 7, the steps have 10 minutes and 2.

I would also make sure you boil the DME until it reaches the Hot Break and then start the hop boil IMHO.

I've done something similar to that and it turned out great. I think I also steeped 1/2 lb of crystal 40. ADIPA is my favorite MrB refill.

Thanks slick - that was more of a typo from where I originally planned on 5 minutes on the Columbus hops - for a 22-10-5 schedule. Got everything sanitizing for the moment, should be brewing shortly!

Have you guys sampled any previous beers using the above mentioned ADIPA recipes? I'm planning an ADIPA for my next brew and would like to add some hops to it. Interested to see how your brews turned out.

I've made one that's long gone and made another one that is 2 weeks in the fermenter. Each is a bit different. My latest has 2 cans ADIPA, 1 UME and 1/2 oz each cascade and centennial hops which is similar to the recipe above. The smell was awesome the first 3 days. Can't wait.

Just tasted a beer a friend made that had ADIPA in it but I've not seen the recipe to know what else was in it. It was much heavier than normal and he dry hopped. Tasted a bit like DogFish Head 90 minute IPA. Which wasn't exactly what he was trying for but very nice aroma.

My favorite ADIPA recipe:

2 cans ADIPA
1 lb of amber DME
.25 lb Carapils steeped
.25 lb Crystal 20L steeped

.25 oz Citra 40 min boil
.25 oz Cascade (or Centennial) 30 min
.25 oz Citra 20 min boil
.25 Cascade (Cantennial) 15 min
.25 oz Williamette dry hopped at 14 days
US-05 yeast ferment for 3 weeks

This is a great brew for real hop heads, The IBU is over 90. :P

Wow - just took a hydro sample (which was 1.012) and this one is going to be good! It smelled awesome, and hopefully over time will get slightly hoppier. I think I'll crash this one on Wednesday or so and shoot for bottling it next weekend.

Sounds like some great recipes guys. I'm going with a modified ADIPA for my next batch, just not sure which one yet. The hoppier, the better. :)

Tried a sampler, and it's pretty tasty. Will probably just continue to get better! The Cascade and Columbus hops are really nice on the nose, the flavor is great - a little drier than I was expecting, but really nice beer early on. Gonna probably wait another 2 weeks at least until I move anymore into the fridge.

Pretty pumped, by St Patty's I should have a pretty good selection to choose from and enough to make waiting on future batches much easier!
