All Grain Number 10: Old Scratch IPA

June 20, 2012

This is my first attempt at an American IPA using plenty of “C” hops.  It’s a clone of the Sierra Nevada Celebration ale.  The recipe was given out during an interview with Sierra Nevada on The Brewing Network.

5000g Pale Malt
664g Crystal 60 EBC
 
Chinook 12.7% AA @ 60 mins 18g
Cascade 5.7% AA @ 30 mins 30g
Centennial 9.7% AA @ 0 mins 16g
Cascade 5.7% AA @ 15 mins 30g
Centennial 9.7% AA @ 15 mins 16g
 
Pre-boil Volume: 26 Litres
Final Volume: 20 Litres
Original Gravity: 1070
Final Gravity: 1014
Yeast: SO5
Alcohol Content: 7.2% ABV
 

All went swimmingly apart from the usual blockage of my hop filter.  I’ll have to have re-think and install something that actually works.

My dingy brew den in the garage. Once the rest of the house is sorted It’ll be cleaned, tiled and made into a clean room.
