It was between and ESB, and English IPA or a Pumpkin Ale for me today. I decided since I don't have any marris otter I shouldn't try and fake it. Went with the pumpkin ale.

I really need to do a hoppy brew though, think I'm gonna have to order me a 25kg sac of marris otter.

I've got about 40kg of Maris left.

This is the hoppiest one I've done.
60+ IBU I normally do around 30 - 40.

I'm considering oak chips in the secondary.

The boil kettle worked okay as a HLT.

How long do you intend on letting it condition (at least, in theory), Orfy?

I always use my boil kettle as the HLT. Hopefully I'll get the two keggles from Edwort soon and can get past that stage.

As far as IBU's go, I haven't hit many at all in my last 8 batches, I really need to do a an IPA of some sort.

I've not thought about it yest. I'll keg it so I'll probably sample one a week to check. When I'm happy I'll start on it. I think It may need 6 weeks+ though.

That's what I was thinking. I recently proved to myself (again) how much conditioning over time helps a brew. Especially when the ibus are pretty high, a good amount of time in the keg/bottle really helps the hops and malt meld. Good luck with it!
