Late Hops in IPA

Recommended Posts

OK Hop Heads, I am working an IPA up.  I want it to be balanced w/ a hint of malt but definitely want the Montueka to come thru, but not overpowering.

Commando w/ both.

Does this have enough flavor/ aroma hops???

2.0 Gal

Est OG 1.068

Approx  6.7% ABV,  60 IBUs, 10 SRM

3# Briess Pilsen Lt LME

1 pack Mr B Pale UME

2.5 oz C-60 at 154* 30 Min

1/2 Oz Columbus 15% AA  50 Min

1/4 Oz montueka 7% AA 10 min

1/4 Oz Montueka  3 Min.

S-33 Safale Yeast.

In my opinion, no. I would, at a minimum, increase the 50 minute to 1 oz and the 2 late additions to 1/2 oz each and had at least 1/2 oz dry hopped the last 5-7 days.

Almost all IPA's have some dry hopping.

That's probably right but that's just my opinion. For sure, dry hop because that's one major proof it's an IPA!

I agree with Beer Lord. You need more.

I can tell you right now your IBUs won't be 60. Guaranteed. I don't care what Qbrew or Brewsmith is telling you. Especially with only one ounce of hops.

And you can take that to bank if you are not doing a late addition with your extract and, are using hop sacks. Those are both known causes for low hop utilization.

Agree with Beer lord's amounts as well. Depending on how hoppy you want it I would be inclined to add a hop around the 20 minute mark.

Dry hop commando style with his suggested amounts using the late addition method and you should have a decent beer. 

Well that's my two cents anyways :)
