Beer Style: India Pale Ale 
Recipe Type: partial mash
Yield: 5 gallons

Description:

Adapted from 'Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin Clone' in the July/August 2016 Zymurgy magazine (original recipe found on page 39). Adjusted the LME/Syrup to match PPG of recipe. The original recipe called for 80 SRM crystal malt which is darker than any available GF varieties. It also called for CaraRed malt, which may be substituted with a CaraVienna, and for this recipe was substituted with CaraMillet. It may be worth trying a 50/50 blend of CaraMillet and Vienna Millet Malt, but I don't know how that would compare to a CaraRed. My experience is that CaraMillet attributes an abundance of sweetness to the beer when over 1 to 1 1/2 pounds are used. The before mentioned malts were increased by 60% along with the addition of James' Brown Rice Malt (read ahead for my explanation) in attempt to achieve the SRM of the original recipe, which called for 10 OZ crystal and 8 OZ CaraRed. So adjust them to whatever your comfort level is because 60% is a large deviation. The SRM of the original recipe was 9, so I added the option of using James' Brown Rice Malt to add color without imparting too much flavor. However, it called for a pound to get the color right, so I would suggest 1/2 to 1 pound as an option if color is important.

  • 8 LBS 13 OZ Gluten Free LME (liquid malt extract) or Sorghum Syrup
