Is it worth it or not?
 
I came up with this recipe as joke one day. Now I'm think of trying it. I'll do a 2.5 or 3 gal first, but this is the full 5 gal recipe.

Do you folks think if will be any good or am I make uber hopped paint thinner?

You won't know till you try it :D. It looks good to me. At some point the IBUs actually taper off and you stop getting as much "bang for your buck".

Yeah, I know. That's why I was wondering about doing. It started as a gag on another forum about using 1 lb of hops in 5 gals of beer.
This is what it spawned.


I think I might try to brew it in a few weeks. Of course something that big will have to condition for months.
