Weekend Brewtime!

This weekend will bring to a close a 18 month brewing absence from my all grain system and brewing with my father in-law and mother in-law. We have brewed several time together since my wife and I moved to Oregon, but it has been too long since the last time.(May of 2012) Needless to say its time. No I'm on the fence with what to brew and anytime I'm on the fence I usually just brew both. So we will be seeing a IPA and  NW IPA being made this weekend.

The IPA will be the easy partial mash, with the recipe as follows:

8 lbs Light LME
1.5 lbs 20°L Crystal
.5 lbs Victory Malt
1 oz Magnum
2 oz Simcoe
2 oz Cascade
1 tsp Irish Moss
1 tsp Gypsum
Wyeast 1056 American Ale

Predicted 1.064 OG - 1.012 FG for a 6.8% ABV and 82 IBU's

The next will be a North West IPA that I have been trying to prefect for a while, the recipe is as follows:

8.5 lbs Maris Otter
1.5 lbs 40°L Crystal
1 lb Light Munich Malt
2 oz Amarillo
1 oz Cascade
1 oz Willamette
1 tsp Irish Moss
1 tsp Gypsum
Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale

Predicted 1.062 OG - 1.013 FG for a 6.5% abv and 77 IBU's
