My first batch, I followed a recipe using malt extract to create a West Cost IPA.
The wording of the recipe made me invert the Hop additions...
[Edit] Instead of:
- 2oz of Centinennial at 0mins left in boil
- 1oz of chinook at 10mins left in boil
- 1oz of columbus at 60mins left in boil
I did :
- 2oz of Centinennial at 60mins left in boil
- 1oz of chinook at 50mins left in boil
- 1oz of columbus at 0mins left in boil
From my reading I realised it would be a very bitter beer with poor aroma... I estimated the IBUs at 105. Am I wrong? Will dryhopping with Citra can help my beer to taste something better than just bitterness?
The rest of the recipe:
- 8oz Victory Malt (steeping grain)
- 9 lbs Gold liquid Malt Extract
- 1 pkg Safbrew US-05 Dry Ale Yeast
Original Gravity was at 1.050
