This recipe features 5 total kettle hop editions. A 60 minute Warrior bittering addition starts it off followed by 4 Amarillo/Simcoe blend additions. Those start at 15 minutes and happen every 5 minutes up until and including knock out. There is one dry hop addition of the hop blend.

It’s kegging time. Beautiful clear beer going into one of my kegs.
I wish that I could have done a side by side comparison of 60 minute vs 1 hour. I did some searching, even out of state, and didn’t come up with any.
This beer, much like 60 minute, is a tasty and drinkable IPA. IBU and alcohol-wise it’s on the lighter end of the scale for current push-the-limit American IPAs (that I also enjoy). The keg went quickly, I almost did not get the finished in-the-glass picture at the end. I think this was the second to last pint. I enjoyed it very much and the speed at which the keg was depleted is a testament to that.
The taste that I walk away with, from 60 minute, more than hops is the great nutty, roasty flavor of the British Amber Malts. I do get that in 1 Hr IPA. As I said, I like that flavor, so, next time I would add another quarter lb or so. Not that this beer needs it to be more like 60 minute. It’s been a while since I’ve had one of those, so I can’t tell you that for certain. I just like the flavors that that malt adds.

Looking through Great Fermentations Recipe Kit Offerings last week, I was happy to see their continuously hopped “1 Hour IPA” as I am a huge fan of Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA. The recipe features Simpsons Crystal Malt, Carapils, Crisp Amber Malt and Warrior, Amarillo and Simcoe Hops. It’s available in both all grain and extract versions. I placed an order via GF’s Flat Rate Shipping last Friday and it was at my door on Saturday. It’s on the schedule to be brewed this coming weekend.
