I'm about to crack my second keg of this Black IPA, very nice indeed.

What a great way to celebrate the first day of a new year, happy new year mate.

That beer looks great and by the background I can see why you live where you live :D
The countryside down my way is all brown and very dry at this time of the year :|

Any hints on thr recipe, I wouldny mind having a crack at one of those later in the year?

:cheers:

Happy New Year Batz
I saw the old year out by brewing a BlackIPA/IBA/Cascadian dark ale.....
Would you mind sharing your hop bill?
I dosed mine with magnum for bittering, Cascade at 10 min, then both cascade and citra steep at 80 and dry hop.
Made a similar version of this once before and although it was nice, it wasn't outstanding. But with IIPA being on tap all the time, I was looking for a change on that tap.

I can tell you guys my hop bill but it was made only to use up leftover hops.
Cascade 55gm @ 60min
Motueka 77gm @ 30 min
Cascade 61gm @ 30 min
Motueka 77gm @ 15 min
Cascade 61 @ 15 min
Citra 35gm @ 10 min

Dry hopped 30gm of Cascade each 25lt cube.

Dark grains were chocolate and not added until mash out.

50lt Braumeister, I turn out more like 55lt.

i really like my black ipa recipe. it's a good drinker, but very interesting. have made it loads of times for parties and festivals and it's always empty fast. i don't like black ipas to be hoppy porters so this is subtle on the roast. also now i wouldn't make it with any extract, the original recipe was from when i was still figuring out my crush and efficiency. all fits no problem in the BM20. i like it at no higher than 6.5% but have made it up to 7.5 for kicks.

Totally off topic 8)

I have to agree that it is a very nice part of Australia and to keep this post somewhere close to being related to beer, I have actually had a beer and some lunch in the Kin Kin pub many years ago while on holidays on the Sunny coast. :drink:

I dont think I stand a chance of moving there permanently as my wife wont leave the grandkids but I do intend to park our caravan up there for a time so to enjoy the surroundings and, of course, your Black IPA. :lol: :lol:

Thanks for that link for your recipe dinnerstick, it looks great.

My next hop order will have to include some columbus.

How do you manage that ?!
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !
