Misiones IPA

I love Simcoe and Amarillo hops and if you do too, you are going to love this IPA recipe. The Hops sing, the Cara 50 lends a toffee baritone underbelly, and then the bitterness takes you in hand on the finish. Very good. Yes indeed.

Ingredients:
4.7kg Pale (2 Row) Malt
0.5kg Cara 50 Malt
0.2kg CaraPils Malt
12g Chinook Hops
50g Amarillo Hops
50g Simcoe Hops
Sachet of SafAle US-05 American Ale Yeast

Mash:

Add 14 litres of water at 75°C to the mash tun and allow to cool to 74°C. Add all grains. Temp should drop to 67°C (Add cool/hot water to reach this temp). Steep for 60 min. Temp should remain constant.

Sparge: (2-Step Batch Sparge)

Step 1: Add 5 litres of water to the mash tun at 76°C. Tap off wort into Boil Pot until water level is just above the surface of grain bed.
Step 2: Add another 8 litres of water to the mash tun at 76°C. Tap off wort into Boil Pot.

Boil (60 min):
Boil Size: 20.5 litres. Add 12g of Chinook at 60 min before the end of the boil (i.e. at beginning), 15g Simcoe at 30 min, 18g Amarillo at 15 min, 20g Simcoe at 5 min, and 20g Amarillo at Flame Out (end of boil).

Ferment:
Cool wort to 22°C, pour/siphon into fermentor, aerate well and pitch yeast. Estimated Original Gravity (OG) is 1.070. Ideal constant fermentation temperature is 17°C. Allow to ferment for a week or two or until Specific Gravity (SG) readings are identical over a 24-hour period. Estimated Final Gravity (FG) is 1.017 SG. Once fermentation is done, rack to a secondary vessel for dry hopping – add 12g Amarillo and 15g Simcoe to the beer. Allow to steep for 5 days. Tap off and bottle/keg.
