Michella IPA #2

I kegged Michella IPA #1 and on Michelle’s insistence, but I have my doubts about it’s quality. I think I may have let the wort sit on the pelletized hops for too long. So as a backup, I brewed a second IPA yesterday with a different recipe. Joe was also on hand to audit my process and just BS to help pass the time.

Grain bill:

  • 7 lbs LME
  • 1.5 lbs domestic 2-row
  • 0.5 lbs domestic Munich
  • 0.5 lbs domestic rye

Hops:

  • 2 oz Cascade @ 60 min. (5.7% aa)
  • 2 oz Cascade @ 10 min.
  • 2 oz Cascade @ 5 min.
  • 2 oz Simcoe @ 2 min. (whole hops, 14.7% aa)
  • 1.0 oz Simcoe @ secondary

Misc:

  • Fermentis us-58 dry yeast (with 1 liter starter)
  • Irish Moss

The wort tasted nice at pitching and had a temperature corrected OG of 1.053 and an estimated bitterness of 68IBU. Fermentation was active within 5 hours of pitching the yeast. woohoo!
