I'm getting ready to brew this beer and was curious to why it has such a long mash time? I always mash for 90 minutes and sometimes wonder if that actually makes a difference over a 60 minute mash. But a 2 hour mash is a first for me.

Thanks, Richard

Hi Richard,

The starch to sugar conversion works slower the lower the mash temperature. This one's a very low 148F so I err on the side of caution and mash longer even though 90 mins is likely enough.

Can I use Marris Otter instead of a domestic 2-row? Would that make ir=t too malty?

You could use Maris Otter but as you mentioned it would change the taste. It would be richer/breadier and slightly darker in colour. Whether that's "too" malty would be open to interpretation. I'm not sure. If I did use MO I'd probably also replace the Munich with MO and possibly part of the 10L crystal. Not sure. Lot of options here - none of them necessarily "wrong". Let us know how it turns out!

I think that would make a very interesting NEIPA style beer! If you do go ahead with this, please let us know how it turns out!

Just tapped this today. I ended up making the recipe as is. Itís not what I expected. Iíve been corrupted by Treehouse and every other NEIPA. This beer definitely has that west coast ipa bitterness I havenít drank in a while. It still tastes great though!

Yep! This is definitely not an NEIPA style.

Over the last ~6 months I've found myself going back and forth between various IPAs styles as I got tired of mostly mostly making NEIPAs. I need to make this one again!

This thread will remain open for questions. Cheers!

Oops! That was a cut & paste error. I've fixed it now.

Thanks for pointing that out and welcome to the forum!
