1. Heat 20 l water to 67 C. 2. Follow the mash-steps 3. Boil for 60 min without hops. Then add hops according to scheme. 4. When timer is at 15 minutes, add Irish Moss and 1/2 tsp of yeast nutritient. 5. The ”0”-hops goes in just before chilling or at ”whirlpool”. 6. Chill the wort rapidly down to 20 C 7. Measure and note the OG Note 1. We have ”cut down” the boil time to 60 min (instead of 80) in recent batches without any loss of quality. Note 2. Start racking over the wort when temp is chilled to 38 C and keep chilling when racking to save time. Note 3. The yeast can be put in when wort temp is below 37 C. Note 4. Be sure of oxygenize solution before fermentation. Next batch: Test to lower total amount to 150g Citra and 150g Cascade, and reduce boil-time to 40 min. We have added 50g of Amarillo as a dry-hop in some batches 5 days prior to racking/bottling-day with great result. This Beer is labeled WIPA Amarillo. History facts: This was the very first beer we made. Brewed in may 2017 at ”Wittja Brygghus”. In original recipe we had 4 mash steps (1:st Mash-in at 42(?) C for X minutes, 2:nd at 62(?)C for X minutes, 3:rd 67(?) C for X minutes and 4:th mash-out at 78 C for X minutes), but two steps has been omitted in later revisions of the recipe to simplify, gain a higher OG without added sugar in boil, and save time. In original batch we also added 6ml of lacto acid in wort when temp 30 C to lower the PH, which we no longer do since our water/wort reaches acceptable PH without it (5,2-5,5). Originally the recipe is a clone of ”Drakens IPA”. An amount of 100g of suger was added to the boil in 1:st original batch to raise the OG to 1055. But you should be able to get OG up to 1060 without added sugar and an FG of 1014-1016.
