Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Brewing IIPA
« on: April 29, 2010, 07:34:01 AM »
I'm brewing an IIPA with a recipe I designed from beer smith. I know some higher gravity beers have a longer boil time. BeerSmith has my recipe boiling for 60 minutes, but should I boil for 90 minutes. I'm using nearly a pound of hops all totaled(including dry hopping),  I use a partial boil, and late extract addition. My target OG is 1.090, and I have done a starter batch of yeast.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Imperial IPA

I'm new to brewing, I'm about to brew my 5th batch. I'm going to try brewing an Imperial IPA. I've learned to add part of the extract at the start of the boil and the rest at the final 15 minutes of boil for better hop utilization. when I was at the home brew shop the person there mentioned I need to age the beer because of the higher alcohol content. I'm just not sure for how long and wether that's in a secondary fermenter or bottle aging?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Adding Extract

I'm new to homebrew and have been using partial grain recipes. I recently read that adding half or so of your extract at the beginning  of the boil and saving the remainder for about the last 30 minutes to 15 minutes will result in better hop utilization and more fermentables in your fermenter. Is this true? I'm planning to brew again soon and was thinking of trying this technique.
