The single malt IPA in the recent Zymurgy sounds pretty good...

50% MO/ 50% Vienna IPA

Got the idea from someone on here and its an amazing mix. I hopped with 1oz each Cascade and Magnum at 60, 30, 15, 5 min and keg-hopped with Cascade. Most well balanced beer I've ever made. Buddy thought I was crazy using magnums late in boil, until he tasted it and went home and made his own.

Would that be a double mash, or should I throw everything in to the mash tun at once?

every thing at once, it FILLS my 10 gal igloo to the brim,

Long mash (I decocted to achieve a step mash) of 3.5 hours, or you could do a long (over 2 hours) cool (148F) single step
and a VERY long boil (4 hours), approximately 9 gallons collected to make 5

Results,  good enough for Charlie to say "Wow!!" at the NHC

Ah, thanks for the link! Well hey, why not? But JESUS 811 calories per pint!?!?! I guess you don't drink it by the pint, eh? And is that 6 months in primary? Oof.

You have to work with it because you are pushing the limits.

I think it could be scaled down to make an ordinary beer in the 1.060 range. Then you could drink two...
