i'm hoping these will be hoppy enough for my tastes. thank you for looking and thank you in advance for any replys
They both sound good. Cascades is a bit overworked in the Pacific Northwest in my opinion, but it doesthe job.
That sounds good. My personal preference when I make IPA is the Three C's, (Cent. Chin. Cas. in that order) but that just me.
any one else?? i know that cascade is used alot, but this is a kit beer so i don't really have a choice. i haven't brewed in about 8 years, so i'm going to do a few kits to get back into the swing of things. my memory seems to be pretty good about brewing though(from what i can tell before my stuff comes) one book that i have read and think is great is "brewing the worlds great beers" it has tons of stuff in it, recipes, how to's it even teaches ag brewing. worth a look. i must have studied this book for about 6 months because there was so much info in it!!
