Busy day today, bottled the Honey Beer which required pasteurised honey and brewed a Centennial Hopped IPA. The original recipe for the Centennial hopped ale is pulled from page 50 of the "250 Clone Brews" magazine.
The recipe is
Centennial Hopped IPA aka "The Ex"
1.4Kg Sorghum Syrup @ 60 minutes
14g Centennial Hops @ 60 minutes
14g Centennial Hops @ 45 minutes
14g Centennial Hops @ 30 minutes
14g Centennial Hops @ 15 minutes
1 x whirlfloc tablet @ 15 minutes
10g Centennial Hops @ 0 minutes
1.4Kg Sorghum syrup @ 0 minutes
*** Cold Crash ***
1 x packet of Yeast nutrient
2 x packets of US-05 yeast
Dry hopping with 10g Centennial Hops @ 7 days
OG: 1041 - Total volume 21L
The original recipe has this beer finishing at 5%, I think this will finish around 4%. This is my first heavily hopped beer and will be my first dry hopped beer. The Centennial Hops are 9.2% AA.
Big thanks to my wife for helping me clean up the malt extract I managed to get it all over the kitchen.
