Falconer's Flight Black IPA

Postby Kyle_T » Wed Oct 07, 2015 09:42

It's been a little while since my last American ale so it's time to have a another go whilst I decide what to do with my last brew, I will use a 60/40 mix of tap and bottled water and a step mash that worked well last time.

Decided to take a punt on using some pellets this time to see what all the fuss is about:

Black IPA:

Batch: 23 Litres
OG: 1.055
FG: 1.015
ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 45
SRM: 35

Grist:

4.6kg Pale Malt
0.4kg Carafa III Malt
0.3kg Vienna Malt
0.1kg Aromatic Malt

Hop Schedule:

20g FF 7C's @ 90 minutes.
10g FF 7C's @ 15 minutes.
15g FF 7C's @ 10 minutes.
15g FF 7C's @ 8 minutes.
20g FF 7C's @ 5 minutes.
20g FF 7C's @ 3 minutes.
20g FF 7C's @ Aroma: 30 minutes.
80g FF 7C's @ Dry Hop: 14 days.

Yeast:

WLP051 - Californian V Ale Yeast (Avg 72.5% Attenuation).

Mash Profile:

Step 1: 55°C @ 5 minutes.
Step 2: 65°C @ 30 minutes.
Step 3: 67°C @ 60 minutes.
Step 4: 78°C @ 30 minutes.

I haven't run it through my software yet as the laptop battery died but that is pretty much how it will end up. I might use another yeast as well as the California V yeast to see what happens.

Any suggestions?

Next Brew: AG#63.

:nono: :nono:

Let me correct that for you

Falconer's Flight Black IPA Cascadian Dark Ale

Its not Pale and it has nothing to do with an India Pale Ale with all those Yankie Doodle Hop additions.

Like the sound of it though :whistle: :whistle:

My kind of beer if I was drinking it in a blackout room. :D :D

That's must be a new record for you GA :D I wondered how long it would take.

Except it is neither a Cascadian Dark Ale because it's not full of Cascade hops.

It doesn't have to be. Cascadian refers to the mountain range in the states where most of the 'c' hops originated and not just the cascade hop. And in any case I sure there is some cascade somewhere in that Falcorners Flight 7C Hop pellets as they are made from a blend of 7 hops including C's and experimental hops so I would guess that one of the 7 is cascade.

Looks a cracking brew no matter what its called! I was tempted with getting some FF 7C'S so I'm keen to hear how this one turns out.

I find hard to believe they originate from a mountain range, even with some basic searching I put together this:

Cascade: Fuggle & Serebrianker.
Centennial: Brewers Gold, Fuggle, East kent Golding, Bavarian & Unknown.
Chinook: Petham Golding & USDA-male (63012M).
Citra: HBC 394.
Cluster: Dutch, English & American varieties.
Columbus: American.
Crystal: Hallertau, Cascade, Brewer's Gold & Early Green.

Going by the reading most were bred in labs in the states. Not mountain ranges.

It's a variation on my Secret Santa BLACK IPA that I sent to Abey and Calum that got favourable feedback.

If I keg it I'll be sure to bottle some and send it your way :thumb:

Ok a little bit of my bad. Cascadia is used to describe a self -designated region that encompasses British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, western Idaho and northern California, including the Yakima Valley and the Willamette Valley, the two main hop growing areas and also Portland, Oregon also known as “Beervana.

Also the actual C hops may well have had their heritage in Europe but they were breed in the Cascadia region.
