This is formulated at 70% efficiency, add or subtract 2-row to adjust to your efficiency.
1.25lbs Thomas Fawcett Amber Malt* (see note below)
Mix all hops together, and hop continuously for 90min** (see note below)
Mash at 149-150*
Ferment with WLP007 at 64*. Use a pitch rate calculator for your starter, you want around 300 billion cells.
I like to split the additions in half over the 2 weeks
*Amber malt: Use Thomas Fawcett Amber Malt, don’t just use any old amber malt. If you can’t find Thomas Fawcett Amber, look harder. This is the exact malt DFH uses, and it’s a distinctive flavor. It’s available at quite a few online retailers if your LHBS doesn’t carry it.
**Hopping: Mix all 5oz of hops together, how often you add them is up to you. Some people add a couple pellets every minute, others fill up 30 dixie cups, and add one cup per 3 minutes. Personally I do 10 additions, 0.5oz every 10 minutes, and it turns out excellent.
That’s about it, it’s actually a fairly easy beer to brew other than the continuous hoping. If you can’t find WLP007, use WYeast 1098 – Dry Whitbread, or Safale S04. Definitely use WLP007 if it’s available, the yeast character is dead on.
I just had a slightly tweaked version take 1st place for IIPAs in a competition.
