Hop Liquor

erockrph:
Armed with the experience from my last insanely-hopped IIPA, and under command to reduce my hops inventory in the freezer per my lovely wife, I thought I'd take another stab at the ridiculous. My ingenious idea: malt liquor meets IIPA.

I basically took Charlie P's O/E 800 recipe and bumped up the gravity with some extra 2-row and a pound of sugar. Then I figured, if malt liquor comes in 40oz bottles, then it would only be fitting to use 40 oz of hops in a 5-gallon batch.

Someone please convince me that this is a horrible idea, otherwise I just may end up brewing this abomination.

YEAST:
Wyeast - Pilsen Lager 2007
Pitch Rate: 2.0 (M cells / ml / deg P)

NOTES:
Centennial "mash hop" addition is runoff into kettle through leaf hops

Centennial 0 minute boil is runoff into fermenter through leaf hops

Divide flameout hops in half. 2nd half goes in after 80-minute hot hopstand.

Add topoff water 1 gallon at a time to kettle after chilling to "sparge" hop trub.

Ferment low 50's. Raise to 68F after 2 weeks and begin dry hop additions. Each addition 2 days apart, bottle 3 days after last dry hop addition.

Sounds tasty. I'm sure it will be interesting making a lager with that hop profile. I say go for it.
Cheers,

I like the idea. 40 Oz of hops in a 5 gallon batch will suck up a lot of that wort, which could be a downside for sure.

topher.bartos:
super hopped Pilsner!!! What do you call it? Imperial India Pilsner Lager?

I like it too!  I would add another gallon of water to compensate for the hop absorbtion though.
