Typically I just use the Plinian Legacy from our host, but I haven't caught one of their "20% off any single item" sales.....in fairness to them I think I missed one not long ago?
But I probably need to draw my own recipe up for a DIPA, as everything else I brew is mine, and I hit up the LHBS for ingredients....
Looking to make a big West coast DIPA, crystal clear and bitter with significant flavor and aroma hop presence.
Malt bill, would be heavy on lighter grains for a palette for the hops to work with, 2 row or pilsner malt. Minimal crystal malt if any. Thoughts? Maris Otter reasonable also?
I have some Wyeast 1450 slurry that I want to use for this, that's still pretty fresh...with a vitality starter.
What hops do you use for your big IPAs/DIPAs?
I have some Chinook, Centennial, Amarillo, CTZ on hand. But will still need to buy more.
Planning on FWH, Bittering, late additions, And Double dry hopping(last DH in Keg).
So who brews their own DIPA?
