American IPA – All Grain


General Info

Inspired by Denny Conn's Rye IPA.


Definitely needs less Crystal malt. Perhaps half. Too much residual sweetness and/or not enough attenuation - not much of an IPA in the way of hops due to the overpowering caramel. Sweet initial taste with spiciness from the rye.

Tweaks for next time:

  • Lower mash temp and/or less C60.
  • More aggressive late hopping with a more characterful hop variety.
  • California Ale or 1056 may yield less fruitiness.
