Weyerbacher Double Simcoe Double IPA Recipe

Weyerbacher discontinued their Double Simcoe Double IPA recently, and also released the recipe below. If you like that beer and want to try brewing your own, this recipe should get you on the right track quickly.

Note: I know this is a DIPA, but the stated hops amounts at flameout and dry-hop seem awfully high to me.

The Recipe

The recipe is based on the following specifications:

  • Batch size: 5.5 gallons
  • Total grain bill: 16.25 pounds
  • OG: 1.085 (23 Brix)
  • SRM: 7.6
  • IBU: 92.8
  • Brewhouse efficiency: 75%
  • Boil time: 60 minutes
The ingredients:
  • 12.5 pounds of Muntons 2-row Pale Malt (76.9%)
  • 2.25 pounds of Muntons Crystal 150 (13.8%)
  • 1.5 pounds of Weyermann Munich (9.2%)
  • 2.1 oz. Simcoe pellets @ 60 min.
  • 8.0 oz. Simcoe pellets @ 0 minutes
  • 8.0 oz. Simcoe pellets for dry hopping
  • 1 Whirlfloc tablet @ 15 minutes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Yeastex @ 15 minutes
  • Wyeast 1272 American Ale II yeast
Mash Schedule
  • Mash at 154F for 60 minutes
  • Mash out at 167F for 10 minutes
  • Fly sparge 5 gallons
Boil Schedule
  • 60 minutes total boil time
  • Add 2.1 ounces Simcoe pellets at 60 minutes
  • Add 1 Whirlfloc tablet at 15 minutes
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon Yeastex at 15 minutes
  • Add 8 oz. Simcoe at flame out
Fermentation Schedule:

This wasn't part of the published recipe, but I'm drawing it from the official specs for the yeast.
  • Chill wort to 60-72F and pitch yeast
  • Ferment 1-2 weeks until final gravity is reached
  • 3-4 days before bottling, dry hop with 8 oz. Simcoe pellets
  • Bottle with corn sugar
