90-minute Dogfish Head IPA

Unread postby cpa4ny » Tue Apr 29, 2014 3:45 am

Haven't brewed for 3(!) weeks - time to get to work :beerbang:

This weekend I will take a stab at brewing one of my favorite beers - 90-minute Dogfish Head XIPA.

The grist bill calls for an epic 8.25 kg of malt and the wort is continuously hopped.

Attached recipe is from the 150 Classic Clone Recipes magazine published by BYO.

I will be following the recipe fairly closely with two exceptions:

- Will swap Warrior hops for Bravo
- Will use WLP090 San Diego yeast instead of Whitbread

Mash schedule-wise, I will follow DFH's; however, will extend the protein rest to 15-20 mins (using Weyermann Pilsner malt).

Let us know how you go with 8.25 kg of malt.

Will it even fit in the malt pipe?

Or will you do a double batch?
Cheers :cheers:

Would definitely need to split the grist into two halves and mash each half separately.

In my personal experience, ~6 kg of grist is the absolute maximum for a single mash on a 20L BM.

Targeting 1.088 OG - will see how that goes.

good luck! how are you going to do the continuous hopping? pull up a chair and a pint i suppose, settle in for the long haul? (that said, drinking while brewing is not good for my beer)

Thanks!

It won't be a pellet-at-a-time process for sure :wink:

I am considering splitting the hops into 12 pre-measured quantities and add them every 7.5 minutes or so.

Something along these lines:

(I like that guy's blog a lot, actually).

A pint while brewing is ok - as long as it stays one pint and does not become 4-5 pints :drink:

To minimize any temptation, I usually start brewing quite early in the morning - 7-8 am and save that pint until the clean-up time :cheers:

In the double mashing thread I posted an idea, I have not gotten round to trying this, but as you are willing to stick by the BM for the hop additions, maybe this could work for you also...

The idea is, lift the malt pipe from the bottom with some blocks to allow circulation without the pumps.
Fill the maltpipe to the brim and lay the top plat just on top to help water distribution.
Then use the tap, and a container to circulate the wort by hand just let it run from the tap into the container and pour on top of the malt pipe top plate.
This way I think it should be possible to add a couple of kg to the malt pipe, and you may not need to do a double mash?

Just an idea...

Cheers

That's a nice idea - I see what you are saying :cheers:

The proposed way will likely save me one hour in (second) mash time; however, doing manual circulation may be a bit of a PITA.

I will probably leverage off of BM's pump to do all the hard work, even though it will take longer :beer:

Here is the final summary of the brew:

https://www.brewtoad.com/recipes/dfh-90-min-xipa

Hydrometer.JPG
Under the foam - 1.085. A bit short of targeted 1.088, but i can live with that.

Hops.JPG
"Continuous" hopping became 6 additions :-)

After 10 days in the primary, the beer hit the FG of 1.021, which works out to about 75% attenuation (ABV ~ 8.4%)

That's seems to be the upper limit of WLP005 - White Labs gives a range of 67%-74% (credit goes to pure O2 oxygenation).

Dry-hopped it with an oz of Amarillo and 1/2 an oz of Bravo & Simcoe each.

Look forward to the weekend :drink:

Came in @ 1.021.

Thanks luk-cha; agree - I think the beer came in on a lighter color side.

However I suspect that the dry hopping will add to the opacity of the beer, giving it a perception of a darker color.

I guess we'll find out over the weekend :beer:

just looking at you mash schedule perhaps because you split the mash and didn't double the the 90 minutes total the Maynard reaction was a little different, but these are just minor details, as i am sure it will be a tasty beer!

@ 8.4% - this little glass packs a lot of oomph.

Tasting notes - lots of tropical aromas and flavors - guava, passion fruit, papaya.

I think I may have overdone the Amarillo additions :roll:

Tweaks for this recipe?

It finished @ 1.021 and has a bit more body than I would like. I would use more attenuating yeast next time I get around to brew this.
