My daughter recently tried my Summer IPA, and based on her feedback (as well as my own empirical testing), the hop schedule seems to work pretty well; I thought I'd stick with it for this one, as well.
Brew Day: 2 Nov
11.5 oz 2-row malt, crushed
1.5 oz flaked wheat
Boil (20 min):
19 oz Pilsen DME
4 oz table sugar
14 g Medusa hops (FWH)
10 min hop stand with 1 oz Medusa hops
*Cool wort, pitch yeast via normal process
Yeast: Safale US-05 + 1/2 vial Clarity Firm
Addendum, 14 Nov: Dry hop: 14 g Medusa hops
Addendum, 17 Nov: Bottled today; got 9 good 12 oz bottles and 1 partial fill that's like 90%
Addendum, 2 Dec: Tried the first Medusa IPA tonight. From the picture to the right, you can see it has a straw yellow color, and is a bit more carbonated than it needs to be...I'm going to be backing down on the priming sugar, to about 0.6 oz, rather than a full ounce. After a few minutes of sitting it settle down pretty nicely.
Started off with a bit of sweet fruit in the nose, as well as on the palate. My wife tried it and when I said that to me, it had a hint of pineapple, she agreed. Not bitter at all, with a flavor reminiscent of melon.
As I progressed drinking the beer, the head continued to settle down and there was some light lacing on the glass. Looking through the glass, the head had large bubbles, but in the middle of the glass, the head resembled more of a latte foam.
