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 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

Citrus Rye IPA, Grain to Glass – Part 2 of 2

Extremely citrus forward Citrus Rye IPA without any citrus added to the brew, as all of the citrus came from the hops and yeasts used. I took an old Red Rye IPA recipe that I had brewed before and modified it using ingredients from beer kits I bought during the holidays. Just remember if you buy a beer kit you can always just use the parts to make your own recipes.

Imperial Citrus A38 (only yeast I planned on using) Sadly the fermentation staled so I added on the 6th day: Imperial Barbarian A04 yeast On the 7th day I added: Bootleg Biology – Funk Weapon #3 which within 24 hours fermentation started up again.
