Hey Guys. I have 5 gallons of rye pale ale finishing up and I am planning to brew an IPA on Saturday and rack onto the WLP001 yeast cake.
I don't have a real recipe yet but this is what I was thinking
70% Two row
OG ~ 1.067
IBUS ~ 70
bitter with Magnum (~35 IBUs)
flavor/aroma with Citra/Simcoe (additions in last 15 minutes)
dry hop with Citra/Simcoe
So the goal is to do a reasonably balanced IPA that is not overly bitter. The plan is to use Citra/Simcoe mainly because I don't want to purchase more hops. My last attempt at an IPA didnt' turn out well because I was too conservative with the hops. Any input?
