Brew Day, Batch 376: Session IPA V2

The keg gridlock here at Chez Cicerone is breaking up, and we're anticipating a bit of loosening of refrigeration gridlock soon, so I can resume brewing. This is fortunate, as I was getting awfully tetchy; I've been casting about for something to kill for the last few weeks. Today will be a second tilt at this windmill, wherein I lighten the color and toastiness on the malt side, while leaving the very pleasant hop bill substantially intact. Here's the poop:

(10 gallons final volume)

9   lbs. Great Western pale ale malt
3   lb.  Weyermann Melanoidin malt
1/2 lb.  Briess crystal 40L
1/2 lb.  Simpsons Golden Naked Oats (crystal oat malt)
Single infusion mash, 1 qt./lb., at 154F
90 minute boil
1.7   oz. Mt. Hood 7.5 %           60 minutes
2     oz. Northern Brewer 10.0%    30 minutes
1-1/2 oz. Willamette 5.2%          10 minutes
1     oz. Bramling Cross 4.7%       5 minutes
OG was 1.041, with an estimated 55 BUs. Fermentation is being carried out by Wyeast 1098 British ale at around 70F. 

Can't wait to start drinking this one....


  1. Sure sounds good. We just discovered Founder's All Day IPA -- we're liking this concept of hoppier session brews.

  2. Shorts Prolonged Enjoyment was a find as well!
