Hi all,

I'm still new to this game (be kind) so i was after a bit of advice. I'm trying to make a strong, malty, hoppy IPA!

I was thinking

1x Coopers IPA tin
2kg of LDME
200grams of Dextrose

Boil:
25grams Amarillo @ 20mins
25grams Cascade @ 20mins
20grams Nelson Sauvin @ 10mins

Filling the fermenter upto 20L, some S05 and fermenting 19-20degress. Then throwing 25grams more cascade in after a few days.

No kegs yet so i'd be botte conditioning. Extract designer spreadsheet suggest around 7.4% with an IBU of 58.6.

Any thoughts on the above? I'm not too sure on my hop additions and amount of malt.

Thanks guys!

knock back the LDME to 1.5kg and up the dry hop to 20g Cascade and 20g Amarillo...

if you want a great IPA, dont be afraid to double dry hop or a massive single.. Id tend to go multiple dry hop additions to it though..

have at it soldier :beerbang:

Yeah, I've made that kit with 2kg of LDME and it was a bit too chewy (and I do tend to like them chewy). Knock it down a touch as Yob advises. You can bump the dex up some if ABV is a primary motivation.

Personally I think that kit shines with English hops but your combination should work well. Go hard late and dry (as advised) and you'll be onto a winner.

(I could have just said "+1" but where's the fun in that?)
