4.4 kg pale two-row

¼ teaspoon of gypsum added to the boil



Fermentis Safale US-05 American Ale, or  White Labs WLP001 California Ale



Mill the grains and mash at 68°C for 60 minutes. Vorlauf until the runnings are clear, then run off into the kettle. Sparge the grains and top up as necessary to obtain 27 litres of wort—or more, depending on your evaporation rate. Boil for 60 minutes, following the hops schedule. After the boil, spin the wort, add the whirlpool hops, and cover. Let rest for 10 minutes. Chill the wort to slightly below fermentation temperature, about 19°C. Aerate the wort and pitch the yeast. Ferment at 20°C. Once primary fermentation activity subsides, dry hop for five days.

  • The bittering addition is different on purpose, right? More bittering for the West Coaster. I'm planning a similar thing with the 4 Play Hazy. Should I boost the bittering in that hop schedule too?

    Yes - West Coast IPAs are more bitter than hazy's. The difference in the bittering is intentional. Brewers Coop
