I'm just using previous recipes I've made from books etc as a guide. All had some sort of crystal in there. What's the reason for it being unnecessary Rob?
Should I add a bit more Munich, something else or just bin it off altogether?

Up to you entirely, but you'll find sweetness, body and head retention pretty good on its own at that abv given enough conditioning, and I wouldn't want to risk things getting cloying (or trust beersmiths FG target for that matter.) Having said that, I've never actually brewed a DIPA :whistle:

I would probably drop it to a lighter crystal if you had it. Although I don't think this recipe would be bad at all! Carapils or Caramalt is what I normally use. There are no rules.. try it and see what you think. There's always another Brew on the horizon.

One of my favourite IPA recipes was around a 6%/80IBU IPA and 92.5% MO & 7.5% Amber, which is not something I'd recommend if someone posted it here, but I loved it!
