Another spectacular fall day before the next cold front means time to brew.  Today an IPA.

10 gallons, OG 1.065

26 lbs. Munton's Maris Otter
1 lb. Weyerman Caramunich
1 lb. wheat malt

Mash at 152°F for 80 min

8 oz. Amarillo FWH
2 oz. Northern Brewer 60 min
1 oz. Warrior 60 min
1 oz. Horizon 60 min
1 lb. Simplicity candi syrup added last 10 min of boil
5 oz. Centennial 5 min
3 oz. Cascade knockout

Split between 2 fermentors.  First one pitched with BRY-97, and to try something new, the second one pitched with Hornindal kveik.

In most of my beers, my only hop addition is FWH.

I know what FWH is and I do it often, but 8 ounces seems like a lot to me even for a 10 gallon batch. The IBU's in this beer would probably make Pliny run home with it's tail between it's legs.

There's an actual physical limit on IBU in beer, and as you add more hops, you can't surpass it.  In fact, past some point of diminishing  returns, adding more hops results in less IBU, as the kettle gets crowded and utilization goes down.  Saturation of iso-alpha acids in lower gravity, hot wort is around or just over 100 mg/L, and lower as gravity increases.  Then a minimum of 20-25% of iso-alpha acids in wort necessarily precipitates out after cooling (solubility  is lower at lower temperatures, these substances are a major component of trub in the fermenter) and with adsorption by yeast and other processes during fermentation.   So really no beer can ever have much more than 80 IBU in reality, no matter how much hops were crammed in or what kind of alleged, calculated bitterness the brewer claims on the label.  IBU aside, what that beer of chumley's can get out of all that FWH is a lot of flavor and aroma.

I brewed a 5 gallon batch of 1.090 wheat wine a few years ago with 4 ounces of first wort hop Amarillo and was so pleased with the results, I have been doing similar additions ever since.

Simple export strength Helles, Barke Pilsner and Saaz.  Another stab at the White Whale.  All the new tweaks to my system I've been incorporating finally clicked, great day.  Next I need to get a couple more Dunkels in the pipeline for the dead of winter....

Making an IPA with Ella hops.  I have a lot of Aussie hops on hand, so I'll try to rip off Umbrella IPA by Pelican Brewing.
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny
