Batch 163, Imperial Panama

Same as batch 100, with some adjustments using the notes from last time. Nice smooth brew day, no problems at all. My new Monster Mill is amazing, great crush in no time.

This recipe is based on my Panama Red recipe, but bumped up a little in the 2-row to get the strong beer to double IPA strength.

Recipe Notes


This is a partigyle batch, so the above is the base recipe to make two parts. Here are individual notes for each part:


Strong: Imperial Panama

Single infusion mash, mash in with 10.5 gallons water. Adjust pH to 5.2. Run off all to boil kettle, should have 7 gallons.


Hops schedule above is for this part. Added 1/2 t Irish Moss at 15 minutes.


OG: 1.090, 1.088 actual
FG: 1.023
ABV: 9.0%
IBU: 115
SRM: 18


Small: I'm calling this "Panama Canal".

Single infusion mash, this is second runnings, so add 7 gallons to mash tun, run off to second boil kettle, should have 7 gallons in the kettle.


Hops for small batch is 1 oz Centennial at 60 minutes, 1 oz Cascade at 5 minutes, dry hop in secondary with 1 oz Cascade for 1 week. Added 1/2 t Irish Moss at 15 minutes.


OG: 1.045, 1.045 actual
FG: 1.011
ABV: 4.4%
IBU: 42
SRM: 8


Wyeast 1272 from batch 162. There were about 2 quarts of slurry, put about 1 1/2 cups in the small, the rest in the strong. Oxygenated each for 60 seconds. Really good activity later that evening.

12/11/2014 Racked the small to a keg and added the dry hops. The strong beer is too sweet. I took a cup of fresh yeast from the small and added a pound of white table sugar to attempt to dry it out.

12/28/2014 Finally racked the strong beer to a keg, it's down to 1.010.
