For the Fresh Hops issue of Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine® (Issue 8, Aug/Sept 2015), Jack Harris of Fort George Brewery (Astoria, Oregon) provided this recipe for their wet-hops India pale ale. Says the website, “Fresh IPA is like beer in 3D—without those silly glasses. Expect hints of citrus, resin, and fruit to flood forward, followed by a piney, earthy complexity.”
12 lb (5.4 kg) organic pale malt (2-row)
1 lb (454 g) flaked maize
8 oz (227 g) Crystal 15 malt
0.5 oz (14 g) Simcoe pellets [13% AA] at 90 minutes
2 oz (57 g) Simcoe pellets [13% AA] at 30 minutes
1 lb (454 g) fresh Simcoe wet hops at -knockout
2 oz (57 g) Simcoe pellets dry hop 7 days
Mash the grains for 60 minutes at 154°F (68°C). Boil for 90 minutes, following the hops schedule. Whirlpool and chill, then ferment at 66°F (19°C), dry hop as indicated, and bottle or keg.
Wyeast 1968 London ESB, White Labs WLP002 English Ale, or Fermentis S-04
