Recipe Specifics:

Type: All Grain
SRM: 4.8
IBUS: 156.6
Batch Size: 6 gal
Boil Time: 60 min
Final Bottling Vol: 5 gal
Efficiency: 72.00 %

Notes:

With my system, this is the absolute highest gravity beer I can fit in my mash tun/cooler.

All of the 30 minute hopstands additions are calculated as if they are 10 minute boil additions.

I seem to prefer a double IPA that isn’t completely dried out, which is a little different than most. I like a little bit of the sugars left in the beer to help combat the higher ABV and I appreciate a thicker mouthfeel in pretty much all beers (this one finished at 1.019).
