As we all know, it's the new hop season. So it's time to clear out some of the old to make way for the eight pounds that arrived this week. Here's what I came up with -- Hop 10 Cubed. It's got 10 different hops, 100 grams each, for a total of 1000 grams (which is 10 cubed (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) ). It also has 10 different malts/grains. I'm also planning on dry hopping in secondary for 10 days continuously, but whether or not that actually happens is up to my laziness.

Without further ado, I give you . . .

Hop 10 Cubed
OG = 1.075 (80% efficiency), FG = 1.019, IBUs = 300 (yeah, right! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/devil.gif) ), SRM = 10.54

Grains
2.75 lbs Crisp Maris Otter
2.75 lbs Weyermann Pilsner
3 lbs Weyermann light Munich
2 lbs Weyermann Rye
1.25 lbs Weyermann light Wheat
0.75 lbs Weyermann Carafoam
0.75 lbs Dingemans Caravienne
0.75 lbs Weyermann Melanoidin
0.75 lbs Dingemans Biscuit
0.25 lbs Flaked Barley

Hops
100 grams each Amarillo, Centennial, Crystal, Liberty, Magnum, Newport, N Brewer, Simcoe, Vanguard, Willamette. Mix together in large bucket and add as follows:
100 g in mash
100 g first wort
100 g each at 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 5 and end of boil

Yeast
1 pack Nottingham dry
1 pack Safale S-04

Mash in around six gallons of room temp water (need extra water to account for mash hops) with 10 g gypsum and 21 g (1 tablespoon) pH Stabilizer. Slowly heat to 150F over 30-45 min. Hold at 150F for 60 min. Sparge with enough 180F water to collect 32 liters in brewpot. This will boil down to 27 liters after 80 minutes, which should allow for 5-5.5 gallons of wort after allowing for hop absorption (this allows for 5-7 liters of wort loss to hops! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/crazy.gif) ). Boil for 20 minutes before starting hop additions (see above for schedule). 15 minutes before the end of boil, add Servo capsule. 10 min before the end of boil, add Whirlfloc tablet.

After boil, chill to <70F, aerate, and add yeast. Ferment at 66-70F for around 7 days or until gravity stops dropping. Transfer to secondary and dry hop with 3 g each of Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe and Willamette each day for ten days. One week after last dry hop addition, transfer to serving keg or bottle. Condition until drinkable, ~2-3 weeks. Enjoy!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

Holy hops! That will be one incredible beer. I think the hop aroma may fry your eye brows off CJ! When are you planning on making this hop monster? I gotta hear how it comes out... Nice one.

With luck, I'll be brewing on Tuesday morning my time -- which is Monday night your time. Should be drinking it around mid-November!

Actually it was all done in metric -- I just dinked around with it so that you Imperialists could understand! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/devil.gif)

Looks very similar to Drew's Hopocolypse actually...but I think it might actually have a few more ozs of hops! Guess I should be thankful I'm close enough to one of you to actually taste the results! Monster beer.

I'm curious, why the Nottingham/S-04 combination?
Touch of yeast flavor, but relatively dry finish?

Hmmm, SRM of 10.54 must be the part of the SRM scale that represents bright green (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/hehe.gif)

Damn, I missed that thread. I'll go check it out right now! But, Go to Hell was my inspiration -- I just wanted to avoid the GTH "it's a little light on the hops" comment. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif)

Er, because I have those two in my fridge? (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/blush.gif) I didn't want to start a new smack pack, but I really need to get rid of hops. I looked at my dry yeast supply, and I have a pack of each that is dated this month, so I figured why not. I'm hoping the Safale will give a hint of interesting esters while the Nottingham will ferment clean and relatively low, like you said.

Actually I didn't really have a color in mind for this one, I just combined grains that looked interesting -- plus, I will admit, grains that I have a lot of or that I have no specific plans for using, like the Rye. But, with all those hops in there, I wouldn't be too surprised if it comes out with a cloudy greenish tint to it! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif)

Everything's ready to go -- just waiting for my daughter to get to work before starting. No sense pissing off two women during the same brewday! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif)

Edit: I just checked Drew's recipe. Man, there are some major hoppin' fools on this board! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/notworthy.gif)

Between Hopocalypse, and Hop Cubed, this sounds like a fantastic idea for a new Halloween movie thriller (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/devil.gif)

It would scare the bejeebus out of BMC drinkers, and leave them scarred (or scared) forever (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif)

Keep us posted!

Holding mash at 150F now. Man was that a bugger to mix!

Hops are all ready to go -- mash hops are already in, and the rest are mixed in a bucket just waiting their turn.

Hloy crap, 1000 grams = 35.7 ounces of hops. I feel so inadequate to think my biggest hop monster was 8 oz (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/notworthy.gif)

Go CJ. I can smell it brewing from here in Australia.
Between Drewsleu's Hopapocolypse and your Hop 10 Cubed, I have enough inspiration for my Inifinity + 1 which is like the Hop 10 Cubed (100 + 1) of everything (except IBU's (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif) )
Keep posting, as I'm refreshing, and want to see a sea of hops in the kettle (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif)

Beers,
Doc

I'll snap some more pictures later on, once I have a chance to breathe!
