    First IPA Attempt

    Hopefully last Revised Recipe, based on a beer I tasted over the weekend with Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe. Swapping out the Galaxy for Mosaic and Simcoe. Dropped teh LDME to 1KG, bumped the Dextrose and added the Malto in Coopers IPA kit Light Crystal 300g steeped for 30 minutes Citra 5g @ at flameout Citra 20g @ DRY HOP Mosaic 20g @ DRY HOP Simcoe 20g @ DRY HOP LDME 1 KG Dextrose 550g Maltodextrin 100g US05  Predicted OG 1.056 IBU 42.2 FG 1.013 EBC 18.7 %alc Keg 5.7 Bottle 6.1 Question, would it hurt in throwing the US05 and the Tin yeast in together? I was planning on using US05 either way, but not sure if I'd get any funky flavours using both, or should I use 2 x US05?

    Hey, this was the revised recipe. Based on the Spreadsheet if I dropped the Dex and kept the Malto, the result wouldl mean the FG was too high? Revised Recipe: Coopers IPA kit Crystal 300g steeped for 30 minutes Citra 5g @ 10 minutes before boil end Galaxy 5g @ 10 minutes before boil end Citra 30g @ DRY HOP Galaxy 30g @ DRY HOP LDME 1.5 KG Dextrose 500g US05  Predicted OG 1.057 IBU 43.4 FG 1.012 EBC 18.0 %alc Keg 5.9 Bottle 6.3 Alternatively if I used 300g of Malt & Dex would result in the below? Predicted OG 1.059 IBU 43.4 FG 1.017 EBC 18.0 %alc Keg 5.5 Bottle 5.9 Would be intesresting to see the taste difference in both of those. I'm new to this so haven't experimented around, and this is my first attempt before tweaking it. Hoping to get an IPA Recipe I can come back to, tweaking things as I go

    great thanks again, lots to learn! When yo say more hops, do you mean bump them up to 20g each then more in dry hop? I've seen some recipes with over 100g's of each hop in dry hops but I don't know how much is enouigh and how much is too much Citra 20g @ 10 minutes before boil end Galaxy 20g @ 10 minutes before boil end Citra 30g @ DRY HOP Galaxy 30g @ DRY HOP During boil will also add to the bitterness of the beer right?

    Thanks everyone,! @Hairy thanks. I think I had my terminology wrong. I meant at flame off, some places refer to it as 60 minutes or the end of your boil. @Otto Von Blotto awesome thanks. Yeah I was planning on using US-05, I've used it in all the others so far and very happy with the way it works after rehydration (lots of action the next day) @Smash apologies, I'm after Fruity, Floral, Tropical flavours, with some bitterness but not lasting on the tongue

    Yeah for sure, will do that one but tried to piece this one together from a few different IPA ones I've found with Hops I know (or have had in beers) Revised Recipe: Coopers IPA kit Crystal 300g steeped for 30 minutes Citra 5g @ 60 minutes Galaxy 5g @ 60 minutes Citra 30g @ DRY HOP Galaxy 30g @ DRY HOP LDME 1.5 KG Dextrose 500g US05 Predicted OG 1.057 IBU 52.0 FG 1.012 EBC 18.0 %alc Keg 5.9 Bottle 6.3

    Only my third brew. First was a pale ale, second a stone and wood clone with mini mash an galaxy. Now I'm after an IPA with some hop kick. @Otto Von Blotto so up the Dry malt with equivalent weight?

    ok thanks, is that enough hops quantity wise for boil and dry hop? I was thinking some Mosaic maybe too?

    So reduce the boil time to 30 minutes then?

    Most likley. added at the 60 minute mark of the boil after the 30 minute steep? Prior to moving to the Fermenter, and adding the LDME, Dex & Kit?
