Black IPA
« on: March 16, 2013, 12:19:39 PM »

What do you think guys/gals? Looking for some roast but not over the top. I am worried a bit about the BU-Gu ratio, 1.36 too high? I was thinking of throwing some more hops in at whirlpool too. What about water profile from Bru'n water for this, regular pale ale profile of something else?

Looks pretty good. Maybe consider cold steeping the roasted malts to keep the roastiness under control.

+1 I cold steep with my Black IPA comes out real nice.

An overnight steep should be sufficient. The general rule of thumb I follow is about 2 qt of water per pound. I don't think it would have a significant effect on gravity, but theoretically you wouldn't be able to convert any unconverted starches. Still, that would be no different than using them for steeping grains in an extract batch.

Good to know, I am brewing today, so I think for this time I will just add them to the mash for the last 10 Min.  What water profile am i shooting for here?

Honestly, I would've cut out the chocolate malt and called it good. I think with a pound of roasted malts, it's gonna be pretty roasty, even with the debittered black.
