Jersey Red Ryder IPA

Our January 2013 Shop Brew Recipe was for a Red Rye IPA. This beer is intended to have a nice full body, a deep red ruby color, good rye presence in the malt flavors with a nice floral hop aroma and flavor with medium bitterness. The brewing program I use is Beer Smith, which will try to do everything for the brewer except drink his beer. Running the recipe through Beer Smith, I got a target Original Gravity of 1.077, SRM of 17.9 and 66.6 IBUs. The grain bill for this beer named, “Red Ryder IPA”, consists of the following:

Special Instructions / Notes: 

We overshot our intended OG of 1.077 a little, the measured OG was 1.083. Throughout the day, a small number of visitors stopped by,  they enjoyed watching the all grain process, as well as a few party folks who brought brownies and beer.  Our efficient team cleaned all the equipment and the clubhouse and we were completely out by 4:07PM.    There were no major problems with this shop brew.  The grain mill was a bit cantankerous but it accepted its lot in life and worked well once it was tweaked enough, we had our strike water waiting for us thanks to the automatic start up of the HLT, and we hit our mash temp so fast, it was like magic.   Our shop boil kettle does take its sweet time to start that rolling boil, but once it gets going, things start hopping!   We all had a fun time with great weather and a fantastic crew!
