Big Brew Day-Vulcan Warrior IPA

We got together again to brew up Greg’s IPA recipe for 20 gallons of wort. Greg and I each took 5 gallons of wort home and Mark took 10 gallons of wort home. We had a great time, even though Greg forgot to bring the grain mill…thank goodness it is an extract recipe! Here is the recipe by the way:

20 Gallons of Wort
33.00 lbs. Briess LME- Gold
3.00 lbs. Crystal 40L
0.50 lbs. Special B Malt

3 oz of Warrior Hops 60 minutes
2 oz of Warrior Hops 15 minutes
3 oz Cascades Hops 0 minutes

My brew is with S-05 yeast, and I did something really different in an attempt to get that big cascade flavor I wanted.

My procedure, the day after brew day:
Boil 1 gallon of water.
Stir in 1# DME.
Toss my chiller and 2.5oz of cascade.
Boil for 15 minutes.
Chill to around 60F to match the wort closely.
Pitch onto the IPA.
