Red IPA (dry hop heaven) 10 gallon all grain 4/19/2015

This is from a brew I did in 2011 which was a very successful beer. Since I have a conical for the next few weeks I'm going to dry hop like mad!

Aiming for a light IPA with some Red Malts and lots of hop aroma.

Name                                   Lbs
Malt - Rahr 2-Row               20
Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L 1.0
Malt - CaraRed                     1.0

Mash 60 mins @ 153F

Reused Kolsch Yeast - small masonary jar.

Magnum 2 oz 60 mins
Cascade 2 oz 15 mins

Dry Hops with Conical, 2 oz of each. Drained 80% of the hops after 4 days. Remaining hop slug stayed until I kegged on 5/16/2015.

  • Columbus 
  • Centennial
  • Citra
  • Simcoe
With all the hops this produced a total of 8 gallons of beer. Second keg has only 3 gallons. Smells and tastes great.
