A variation of BYO Dogfish Head 60-minute IPA.
Substituted best guess replacements for grain. SWMBO likes organic.
Rounded amounts to half pounds and quarter ounces.
Substituted: 14oz of Tamarind concentrate for 14oz Amber LME;
Substituted: leftover hops.
The ished readings are from BYO.
I don't use software, and haven't taken the hydrometer out of the original packaging. Two strikes.
Third strike: mash rose to 160, slowly dropped to 150, then repeated. First brew at new house, and I'm disappointed with the electric range.
This is my first variation to a kit or recipe.
Best tasting wort to date. I'm a regular tamarind drinker, often taking Jumex for work lunches.
