The addition of more hops is key in an Imperial IPA which leads to increased bitterness, super hoppy aromas and unique flavors. The added bitterness from the hops is balanced through the use of more malts causing these beers to be much stronger and higher in alcohol content. The Imperial IPA style continues to be one of the most popular styles for homebrewers with beer recipes that continue to push the limits.
Red Rye lager with Munich, Malt Rye, Black Patent malt(for colour), and Columbus hops. Need lotsa rice hulls to keep it mashin. Made approx 20L, with OG measured at 1.060. Measure SG at 9 days post pitch, measures 1.016. Will lager for 4 weeks probably, hopefully the last fermentation occurs. ---It didn't, so must have had a higher mash temp than ideal, or the munich wasn't super fermentable or something,.
