I’m looking for a few suggestions on what to do for a white IPA. I’m looking for grain bill, yeast, hops, and spice considerations.
Grain bill- 5 gal batch
Briess 2 Row - 1.2lbs- 12% -Neutral base malt
Weyermann Pilsner - 5.5lbs - 57% -Good husky/grainy base malt
Briess Red Wheat - 2lbs - 21% -Main source of wheat with lowest color impact
Briess Flaked Wheat - 1lbs- 10% -Extra head retention and haze
WLP500 or WLP001 both on hand
Hops/Finishing hops (40 IBUs)
Citra or Sorachi Ace
Not sure if I will spice it at all. I am looking for a white IPA that has characteristics of both an American IPA and a Wit whose flavors will complement yet never overwhelm. I want focus to be on more atypical hops with definitive tropical or lemon citrus tones. Maybe with a background of spices.
