Have any of you made any great beers without really having a proper recipe?
I have some milled grains in a bucket that are a couple of months old but I cannot remember what is in there! Mainly 2-row with some munich or vienna and C40 i'm guessing.
Anyway I am going to brew today and add enough hops to IPA levels and hope for the best...
If its great i won't be able to replicate it but never mind!
That's what I'd do. I went to my LHBS and they completely messed up my grain order (and then crushed it and put it all into one bag). So I just let it ride and it turned out great. Not quite what you're talking about but you should just brew the stuff.
