Homebrewing Recipe: Double IPA (extract)

I’ve been brewing for over 10 years, a couple months ago I realized I’m never brewed a double IPA, so here is my first shot at a double IPA extract.  It’s not a mind numbing dipa, this one only clocks in shy of 7 %abv and 51 IBU’s, but has a ton of aroma hops.

Schedule:

  • Steep Grains 45 min @152
  • Boil 60 minutes (add extract & follow hop schedule above)
  • cool to 60 add yeast
  • Primary 7-10 days
  • Secondary (dry Hop) 14 days
  • Tertiary  14 days
  • Bottle or Keg

With the large amount of hops in the wort, I’d recommend straining them out when going to the primary so they don’t clog your spigot.  I Used a nylon bag for the dry hopping.   The added benefit from using a tertiary vessel is the is amazing well filtered.
