Title: IPA all grain recipe thats ready to drink in about 1 month
Post by: stoiberbrau on August 04, 2010, 05:33:22 pm
I'm trying to find / develop a recipe for an IPA that will be ready to drink in about a month.  I see several that may do but would like some personal feedback on a recipe that someone has brewed that turned out great.  Work got in the way of brewing this earlier and I would like to serve it at a BBQ we're having in early Sept.  Thanks

Bottled or kegged? Either way you should be able to do it, but if you're bottling it may not leave enough time for a dry hop.

+1 for kegging. Just transfer out of primary into a keg, and throw dryhops in there with a piece of (un-waxed, un-flavored) floss tied to it. That way you can pull out the hops if you dont finish it.

Also - I like to "continually-hop" my IPAs. Just take your hops (I use Magnum, Amarillo, Columbus, and Simcoe), mix it evenly, weigh them, then add equal amounts (by weight) every two minutes. Comes out a lot smoother IMO - no "rough edges".

I made a spreadsheet that calculates IBUs for continually-hopped beers if you want to try it.
