Next brew session: 20 Jun 2010. Style: IPA

Now that I’m home, settled in, and back in a routine, I’ve put together a nice IPA recipe.  I built it out at BeerTools.  This beer is special for a couple of reasons: 1) First beer brewed in 2010, and 2) I’m brewing it on Father’s Day.   I decided I wanted to brew a beer where I could use my homegrown hops …

Soooo … without knowing the Alpha Acid, I’m taking 15 lbs of malt and using the following hops for my brew: 1) Simcoe (0.5 oz) – bittering (leftovers), 2) Nugget (1.25 oz) – bittering (homegrown), 3) Golding (1 oz) – flavor (I got these while in Belgium (see this post)), 4) Golding (0.5 oz) – aroma, 5) Cascade (0.35 oz) – aroma (homegrown), 6 Cascade (1 oz) – Dry Hop (homegrown).

That leaves me with some Chinook homegrown to use in my next brew … I’m really looking forward to this brew!
