In this homebrewing video we’re making a Double IPA (Imperial IPA) with Citra hops. We’re also using a new 240 volt brewing controller from Clawhammer Supply that uses a new ultra low watt density element. This is a big beer recipe with a big 18 pound grain bill and a bunch of Citra hops. In order to mash in all the grains, we sparge after the mash in order to have the right amount of water for the boil. Watch this video to learn how to easily brew big beers at home along with important techniques like sparging. This recipe and brew system is perfect for expert and beginner homebrewers. You should brew this beer with some friends and then take it to a cookout, game day party, wedding, or wherever there’s thirsty people. We recommend pairing a big beer like this with foods like steak, hamburgers, french fries, and hot dogs. Let us know in the comments how this recipe worked for you if you try it out. Check out the resources below for a full recipe, brewing equipment, and an educational article about Citra hops.
