Batch 168, Guava IPA

Second attempt at this Guava IPA recipe. I made all the changes I thought about from last time:

  • Increased the Munich to 5 lbs
  • Increased the guava to 1.5 lbs
  • Used Magnum instead of Citra for bittering
  • Eliminated the crystal
  • Used London Ale III yeast

Guava paste didn't dissolve in hot wort, so put it in the blender with some hot wort until it was smooth. Poured it back into the boil kettle through a strainer, only caught some hops and a couple of pea sized pieces of guava paste.

May 11, 2015: I kept waiting for the FG to drop to around 1.015, then I realized the recipe says it should be 1.019, which is where it was last Friday. Transferred to another bucket for secondary, added 1 oz Citra for dry hopping.
