The only time I have ever enjoyed Curim was when B&C had it on cask one time. It was lovely!

Yeah it was very nice, carlow are too fond of their filtering system

We don't have to go with there *actual* recipe

Right, let's knock one of these out. Poll created, one day, what's the preference?

So get a list of all the hops is the next step?

I don't think Carlow have done a white IPA so it makes sense that we help that happen.

Just to say, on the schedule for this year so far are an imperial stout and a weissbier.

What about asking them what they can get and working with that?

Same thing. So we're asking what's available to use rather than saying what we'd like in advance?

Yeah, no point us asking for fancy hops they don't stock or can't source.

We want fancy.

So going by the feedback from #1 we'd be looking at a grain bill of mostly pale malt. About 5% low crystal and much the same Cara maybe. If we're looking for a decent high abv with a dry ish fg an addition of dextrose will help out.
Without knowing fancy hops for a 1.080 ish IPA any of the standard bittering hops to about 70+ and a butt load of late fancy hops will do the job.
A single specialty hop could also be a nice drawing point. Especially with all the Eastern Europe hipster hops now available.
Finish about 1.010 very drinkable IPA.

The mild was never destined for Carlow- we/they are looking for a celebration beer for the 20th anniversary. Funnily enough "big and bold~" was exactly the term myself and Seamus used when discussing it- it looks like Conor might have got the memo from management...

I'd be more inclined to go to for go for an OG of 1.060. 95% Maris Otter, 5% wheat, 65 IBUs using something like Columbus or Cascade and then shed loads of nice hops in the whirlpool and dryhop.

There's also talk of pitting it in competition with a collab from someone else, but I'm sure that'll come out in the wash if it happens.

So, White IPA is out, defeated by 5 votes to 2. Sticking with Extra IPA for now anyway. New poll up on the gravity: about 1.060 or about 1.080? One day to vote. Go!

Let's be honest. Nigel is the most accomplished home brewer to contribute to this thread by a county mile *cough* Beoir#1 *cough* ... just go with what he recommends!
