Batch 138, Brigid's Lament IPA

A variation on St. Brigid's IPA. I'm out of Cascade and Chinook (holy crap, I never expected that!) Well, I had some, but they were leaf hops from my garden from 2010. They smelled like the plastic bag they were stored in, so I threw them out. This batch uses Belma and Galena (I have a lot of Galena from the hop tour last fall, so they are 2012 crop) instead. Belma is a new variety that I haven't used before.

10 gallon batch

OG: 1.063
FG: 1.016
IBU: 89
SRM: 11

23 lbs 2-row
1 lb wheat
0.25 lb chocolate malt

60 minute mash at 152F.

90 minute boil

1/4 oz each Belma, Centennial, and Galena at FWH, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 5, flameout.

I found the baggie with the flameout hops on the garage floor the next day. I think I'll use them to dry hop with.

Wyeast 1272, pitched yeast cake from batch 136.
