Session IpA recipe critque
My first shot at this, and at using Mosiac, what do you think, the Moteka in the recipe are actually Mosiac and I will be doing a 30 min hop stand with the 0 minute additions. Thinking I will chill to 150 and then add the 0 min hops...

klickitat jim:
I'd cut the carapils and aromatic in half and bump the base to make up for it. I'd bump up the ibus to at least 50.

What's the mash temp and ratio?

HoosierBrew:
IMO a good BU:GU ratio is around 1:1 for an IPA, so upwards of 50 IBUs as Jim said is where you want to be.  In a beer of that gravity I would dry hop ~ 3 oz for a week to give you some real IPA hop flavor.

+1  to cutting Aromatic to 8oz and CaraPils to 8 oz.

james:
The problem with a lot of session IPAs I've had is they end up way too thin.  Personally I would mash higher (155-158) and increase the amount of crystal malt to around 20% of the total.  I'd probably drop the aromatic out completely since you are using maris otter which has a ton of flavor already

thebigbaker:
I agree.   Personally, I too would drop the aromatic and increase your IBU as Jim stated.  Maybe add some Magnum @ 60 min or move your Chinook to 60. 

"Session IPA" or "Extra Hoppy Pale Ale?" ;)
