“Whale Arrow” IPA

Posted in Edibles on June 8, 2010 by jkiparsky

Also known as “IPA 2”, since it’s the second batch of the Boston brewing, and they’ve both been IPA.
This one is a little different from the first, but not by a lot. The most striking difference is that it’s the first time I’ve brewed with spray malt. The dry stuff is significantly cheaper, so let’s see how it comes out.

The recipe comes from the Modern Brewer recipe book, they’re calling it a Harpoon clone.
1 # crystal (40)
1/2 # Belgian Biscuit

3.3 lb light malt extract
3 lb light spray malt

For an hour boil,

3/4 oz galena at t-60
1 oz Cascade at t-15
Irish moss at t-15 (neglected this step!)
1 oz Cascade at t-5 (this was more like t-2, in the pot and off the boil very fast)

Boilup 5/31/10
Racked to secondary 6/5
