I'm gonna try to suck a friend into homebrewing tomorrow. Anyone have a recommendation for a LME IPA or partial mash IPA? I really can't tell if I've got a winner by looking at online recipes.

The brewer's best IPA kit makes a pretty good beer. I don't have my recipe sheet from that one, (brewed it many years ago) but as I recall I enjoyed it a lot.

Brew on,
jeff

Sister Star of the Sun is a truly wonderful IPA. It remains one of my all-time favorites. There's no reason it couldn't be brewed as a partial mash recipe, or even extract with steeped dark crystal malt. Substitute half a pound of wheat extract for the malted wheat.

I'll try it Bill. I've heard enough brewers who rave about it, and the recipe is pretty simple.

Does anyone substitute table sugar in place of malt extract? I recall reading in BYO maybe about high finishing gravities from unfermentables in extract, and to replace some syrup with sugar.

I feel like a noob.

It depends on the extract you use. Some produces wort that is just as fermentable as if you brewed all-grain, but there are extracts that are less so and would benefit from substitution with, say, 5-10 percent sugar. I know Dan Listermann swears by the Canadian LME he sells and says it is highly fermentable.

Laglander is the extract that has the most unfermentables. Most of the others are not too bad. 5% sugar would be saftey insurance and not too noticable if the extract did ferment out.
