Been awhile since my buddy and I have been able to brew something, so we got a little crazy. :)

5 gallon batch
-10 lbs 2-row
-4 lbs Marris Otter
-.75 lbs Crystal 40L
-.75 lbs Munich 10L
-6 lbs Briess DME
-1 oz each Citra, Chinnok, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe
-2 oz Simcoe whole cone
-2 vials of WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast

Mash grains @ 150*F for 60 minutes, sparge with water @ 190*F until SG coming from mash reached 1.015. Pre-boil volume was ~7 gallons.

Meanwhile, boiled 6 lbs DME in 1 gallon of water for 30 minutes to use for topping off boil losses and ultimately bump SG up.

At start of 60 minute boil, added 0.5 oz old Cascade pellets for bittering.
@30 minutes, added 0.5 oz each of Columbus and Chinook. Also added 0.5 gallons of DME wort to top off kettle.
@15 minutes, added 0.5 oz each Centennial, Citra and Simcoe
@12 minutes, started "continuous hopping" (sprinkling a few pellets in every couple minutes) with remaining hops until flameout.

Chilled wort to 78*F, transferred to carboy through 1 oz of Simcoe whole cone hop-back, added remaining DME wort and pitched yeast when temp reached 72*F. OG at pitch was 1.100-1.098.

We'll likely dry-hop this with another 1 oz of Simcoe whole cone hops.

This beer was inspired by the 3L bottle we drank the day before of Marin Brewing Co.'s Brass Knuckle Triple IPA. We'll see if ours even holds a candle to theirs. :)
