Imperial IPA • All Grain • 6 gal

Muddy Mo

The capital letters in this brew's name denotes the hop schedule: T=Tettnang, H=Halletaur, A=Amarillo, S=Simcoe, S=Strisselspalt. Loosely based on Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin'. Should be a good recipe for using up all the these hops that have been unopened in the freezer for quite awhile. Brew date: 11/25/12

Ingredients (All Grain6 gal)

  • 8.1 lbs Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    A slightly darker base malt than our Premium 2-Row, our Northwest Pale Ale Malt is produced from well-modified, Western-grown 2-Row barley, with a kilning regimen based closely on traditional British Pale Ale malting practices. Contributes a malty complexity to beer flavor and aroma. Excellent in American Pale Ales and American versions of British beer styles.

  • 6.1 lbs Pacific Northwest Wheat

  • .3 lbs Dark Wheat Malt; Weyermann

    Dark Wheat Malt; Weyermann

    German-grown top-quality wheat (2004 harvest). Product Characteristics: Signature malt for Bavarian Dunkelweizen and similar beers. Adds creaminess, body, and complex wheat flavors, as well as some color to top-fermented beers. Recommended Quantities: Up to 70% in Bavarian-style Weizenbiers Suitability (beer styles): Ales: Dunkelweizen, Weizenbock, Weizendopplebock, pub wheat ales, light or low-alcohol beers

  • 1.9 lbs Torrified Wheat

    Torrified Wheat

    Helps head retention and mouthfeel, used in some pale ales.

  • .5 lbs Rice Hulls

    Rice Hulls

    Rice Hulls are used as a filter medium, mostly used in all grain wheat beers to help prevent a stuck mash.

  • 1 oz Amarillo® - 8.5 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min


    Grown in Washington. A newer multi-use hop with a nice citrus-flower bouquet and medium-high acid content suited for bittering. Used in American Ales and IPAs.

  • 3 oz Hallertauer Tradition - 6.0 AA% pellets; boiled 20 min

    Hallertauer Tradition

    Fine, 'Noble'.

  • 2 oz Simcoe® - 13.0 AA% pellets; boiled 5 min


    Used for aromatic, and especially bittering properties.

  • Danstar Nottingham

    Danstar Nottingham

    The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculant & relatively full attenuation properties. It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt & hops to develop. The recommended fermentation temperature range of this strain is 14° to 21°C (57° to 70°F) with good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures (12°C/54°F) that allow this strain to be used in lager-style beer. With a relatively high alcohol tolerance, Nottingham is a great choice for creation of higher-alcohol specialty beers!

    Wyeast 1450 Denny’s Favorite 50

    This terrific all-round yeast can be used for almost any beer style, and is a mainstay of one of our local homebrewers, Mr. Denny Conn. It is unique in that it produces a big mouthfeel and accentuates the malt, caramel, or fruit character of a beer without being sweet or under-attenuated.
