    Caramunich, Carapils, Crystal. All have unfermentable sugars and you'd get a pretty sweet beer. The latter recipe looks better.

    I bottled the super IPA yesterday, it smelled fantastic! I can't wait for it to carbonate, though I am a bit worried, the priming sugar mix may have been a bit too warm. I added it to the bottling bucket then transfered the beer into the mixture. Did I kill my chances for this batch carbonating?

    You'll be okay, don't worry, many of us dump the priming solution in hot, and rack on top it.

    Yes, but MaltoDextrin powder is not the same, as it is essentially post-processed & refined from carapils/dextrin malt.

    I gotta say - I tweaked a recipe that Lupulinitus posted on this thread and it it fantastic!!

    5 gal

    13.5# 2-row
    1.3# crystal 30l
    0.6# carapils

    Hops:
    1 oz Amarillo Mash
    .5oz Simcoe Mash
    1 oz Magnum 60 min
    1 oz Cascade 25 min
    1 oz Simcoe 20 min
    1 oz Amarillo 15 min
    1 oz Cascade 13 min
    1.5 oz Simcoe 10 min
    1 oz Amarillo 8 min
    1 oz Simcoe 5 min
    1 oz Amarillo 3 min
    1 oz Simcoe FO

    yeast - WLP001 Califorina Ale

    Infusion Mash 152
    OG 1.068

    I kraeusened with 1 qt gile

    This was/is great!!

    My FG was 1.014

    Not that it matters, but... does this fall under 'double-ipa' status? maybe barleywine?? Being a newbie I'm still working on what I like first and classification second.

    While it certainly as the hop profile for a DIPA or a IIPA, it does not have the malt. The O.G. should be considerably higher.

    Glad you liked it and used it. I always wonder how much of a difference the yeast would make. I use WYEAST 1332XL Northwest Ale exclusively for my IPA's and Porters only because I always like the beers so much and know what to expect from it. I have the same basic recipe fermenting right now except I used Columbus hops instead of the Amarillo's.

    This recipe turned out great. It's a serious RyePA but it is amber in color rather than pale. If you would want it pale use 2 lbs of Crystal 30 rather than the 40 and 80. If you like IPA's, you'll definately enjoy this.
    Here's the label
    http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1...llbillyIRA.jpg

    India Rye Amber 32/32 10 gallons

    27lbs Briess Pale malt
    2lbs Weyerman Rye Malt
    1lb Briess Crystal 40
    1lb Briess Crystal 80
    1lb Muntons Carapils 20
    Hops:
    Mash: 3oz Cascade 5.5%
    Boil: 2oz Columbus 13.7%
    last 25 minutes: 2oz Cascade
    20: 2oz Columbus
    20: 2oz Cascade
    18: 2oz Cascade
    15: 2oz Simcoe
    15: 2oz cascade
    13: 2oz Simcoe 11.9%
    10: 2oz Columbus
    8: 3oz Simcoe
    5: 2oz Columbus
    3: 2oz Cascade
    End: 2oz Columbus
    Keg: 2oz Cascade
    WYEAST 1332XL Northwest Ale
    Mash 154 degrees
    I forgot to take an O.G. when I put it in the fermenter, but the preboil gravity(about 14 gallons) was 1.061.

    That looks like a tasty hop bomb. Just what I like!

    How would you convert it to an extract version? And what do you mean with "I kraeusened with 1 qt gile"?

    Thanks.

    Hopefully someone else can answer your question about converting to extract... i know there is a formula - but i don't have it.

    As to your other question... gile is unfermented wort saved from the post boil. You can use it instead of the corn sugar that is added for carbonation.

    Use 2 cans (8#) of Alexander's Pale LME and you are good to go.
