I stand by the statement that you should have gove with your original recipe
I should have, but I am currently dry hopping with 1 oz of simcoe… Next time!
Drank some last night and boy are these tasty. Crisp and light, floral hop with some bite. Very much a spring beer. Great fluffy white head that I can draw on (must be the oats or decoction)… I could drink a bunch of these! If I brew it again, I would go all simcoe and add a few more lbs of 2-row. Or, drop out the dry hop and let my coors light drinking friend at it, they would love it!
Just like all the others, I will be sad when its gone! Thank goodness I am moving up to 10 gallon batches, these 5 gallon batches seem to be blow out when they start tasting good!
[quote=“ryclo”]Or, drop out the dry hop and let my coors light drinking friend at it, they would love it![/quote]There’s something seriously lacking in a Simcoe IPA if someone who drinks Coors Light could even get past the first whiff from the glass, let alone drink it!
lol, that probably should apply to an IPA of any variety!
I know, it came out more like a hoppy Pale Ale… No where near an IPA honestly, needed more hops and more 2-row I think. Either way, it was good! Gotta start somewhere with new recipes I guess?
I’m quickly learning that myself! It’s really cool to drink a beer you designed, think, “Yummy! But, if I make these changes, it will be closer to what I inteded.”
Everything about this hobby perpetuates this hobby :cheers:
Yep, I love this sport!
