Flying Dog – Raging Bitch Clone on Rye – Belgian IPA Imperial – Grain to Glass – Part 2 of 2


This is a tribute to Fly Dog’s Raging Bitch beer. Essentially I found as many clone versions of it as possible to come up with my version of it. I intentionally substituted the first bittering hop addition of Warrior for Columbus as I was out of Warrior. I also added 1 lb of Rye to play on the spiciness of the already spicy brew.

Raging Bitch on Rye – Clone on Rye
5.25 gallon recipe with 90 minute boil – OG 1.0175 FG (estimated) 1.014
Currently this beer is dry hoping but is actually at 1.008 FG which would make this 8.8% by volume.
8 lbs Pale Malt, Marris Otter
6 lbs Pale Malt Belgian 2-Row
1 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 60L
1 lb Rye Malt 1 oz Columbus (16.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) at 60 mins
0.50 oz Columbus (16.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) at 15 mins
0.50 oz Amarillo (8.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) at 15 mins
0.50 oz Columbus (16.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) at 5 mins
0.50 oz Amarillo (8.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) at 5 mins
5 minute additions:
Added 1 heaping tsp of Wyeast Yeast Nutrient
Added 4 oz cooled wort with 1/4 tsp of Super Moss HB
1 oz Amarillo (8.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) Whirlpool for 10 mins at 150F
1 oz Columbus (16.2% Alpha) (28.3 grams) Whirlpool for 10 mins at 150F Belgian Ardennes – Wyeast 3522
Dry Hop Schedule:
1 oz Columbus Cryo (28.3 grams) 7 Days
1 oz Amarillo Cryo (28.3 grams) 7 Days

Equipment I used to brew this batch of beer:
Jaded Brewing Scylla
Anvil Foundry 10.5 Gallon All-in-One brewing system with recirculation pump kit
Awesome propane burner – Great quality
Five Star Super Moss HB
Wyeast Yeast Nutrient
Gelatin – cheap bulk for clarifying
Hop filter for brewing
Glass Carboy
Plastic Carboy for measuring
Tilt Hydrometer during fermentation
Best Hydrometer I’ve ever used and a great company
Hop filter for dry hopping

Double Simcoe Double IPA by Weyerbacher Brewing

Double Simcoe Double IPA by Weyerbacher Brewing is an American 2x IPA or Imperial IPA at 9% ABV and sporting 90 IBUs. Double Simcoe pours deep copper color with a nice off white head with subtle hints of grapefruit but with the first sip you realize this is not your ordinary 2x IPA. After your first sip you realize this double IPA has a solid malt backbone with a subtly caramelized apricot flavors with a bit of pine and citrus with a dry caramel malt flavor. Love the joker on the label on the neck of the bottle which hints to the creativity and aggressive flavors you are about to sample.
