Having brewed a great session IPA using El Dorado & a good one using Chinook hops I took advantage of the opportunity to brew a slightly stronger, super hoppy IPA using both hops plus some Cascade.
Mash - starting at 68°C and falling to 59°C at the end of 1 hour.
3 Kg of pale malt
Boil - 1 hour 15 mins
15 mins from end - 20g Cascade, 50g Chinook & 100g El Dorado (14.8 % aa) hops
10 mins from end - 5g Irish Moss
Cooled with my wort chiller to 20°C and overdosed with Mangrove Jack's M-44 yeast recovered from my last brew.
Dry hopped with 15g Chinook & 80g El Dorado.
15 litres of wort collected at an OG of 1.044 & an FG of 1.010 which should give me a beer of around 4.5% alcohol, 4.6% once the priming sugar has fermented away.
Bottled after 5 days.
Verdict on bottling: strongly bitter with the Chinook dominating the El Dorado hop character. Hoppiness in spades. This'll do nicely.
