Sweetwater IPA Recipe???
« on: June 26, 2011, 10:29:49 PM »
I might've asked this before (and if so, my apologies), but does anyone have what they think is a good Sweetwater IPA recipe?  I really like this beer a lot and am hoping to replicate it here in Korea.

OG: 1.065
FG: 1.016
ABV: 6.5%
Color: 9.4 SRM

12.5 lbs. Pale Malt(US) 2.0 SRM
0.63 lb. Crystal Malt - 80L
0.50 Munich Malt (9.0 SRM)
0.50 Wheat Malt (2.0 SRM)
1.60 oz. Simcoe (12.4%) 60 minutes
2.00 oz. Amarillo Gold (7.2%) 15 minutes
1.00 oz. Chinook (13%) 0 minutes
2.00 oz. Chinook (13%) Dry Hop
1.00 tsp. Irish Moss 15 minutes

This should get you close.  Though I think they use Chinook, simcoe, goldings, and cascade for the hops

ethalacker... thanks for the input.  i made an attempt at the sweetwater ipa a few weeks ago based upon a different recipe and am waiting for it to condition now.  my grain bill is very similar, however, the hops in mine were 100% simcoe.  i'm curious to see how it turns out.  i really like that beer and want to make it for folks here in korea.
