Preparing to cook up my black IPA
Went online today and got all the ingredients for my Black IPA
- 2 cans Coopers light malt extract (Substituted Generic Brand)
- 500 g light dry malt
- 500 g dark crystal grain
- 250 g carafa 3
- 250 g chocolate malt
250 g dextrose
- 60g Citra (Substituted Simcoe)
50g Centennial (Substituted Cascade)
- Safale US-05 Ale Yeast
I substituted a few bits and pieces, most notibly the hops, but also I got some generic brand of light malt extract. Where that may have fallen over is that the cans I bought were only 1kg each, where the recipe called for 2 x 1.5kg (the coopers). This actually reduced the ABV from 5.7% down to 3.8%, so I'll have to get another 1kg of malt before I cook this.
The recipe can be fond here:
I'll be cooking this up next weekend, and maybe making a video of it.
