Brewing this Sunday: Firestone Walker Union Jack-inspired II

Unread postby cpa4ny » Fri Jan 24, 2014 12:35 am

Here's my plan for this coming Sunday - FW Union Jack-inspired IIPA.

Haven't DOUBLE dry-hopped before, but I guess it is what the West Coast IPA brewing greats like Matt Brynildson & Vinnie Cilurzo do nowadays.

By the time the primary fermentation is over, should be getting this guy to help out with all the dry hopping:

Also - hope that the beer can dry out a bit more than the predicted 1.018; 90 seconds injection of pure O2 + a Servo should help me to get there, hopefully.


PREDICTED

1.076 OG
1.018 FG
65 IBU
7.6% ABV
8 SRM
0.86 IBU/OG

Came in slightly short @ 1.072. I bought the hops from Yakima Valley Hops:

http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/

Unlike many other places, they ship overseas and charge only USD 24 international shipping charge for 3.5 pounds.

That's 7 varieties of 8-oz bags :beerbang:

Will surely last me for a while.

The final product :drink:

Lovely hop aromas from 4 oz of hops used in dry-hopping (overall hop usage - 7 oz).
