Just curious if you tasted the sample when it was at 1.023? I recently brewed an IPA that finished at 1.020 and I thought that was going to be way too high, but it really created a perfect balance for the bitterness (I'm a little heavy handed with the hops). All I am saying is let your palate be your guide next time. I really hope you follow up with us on this beer as I am interested in IBU vs terminal gravity as well as initial gravity...

IBU's were close to 200. Most were from the first wort hop and are really smooth bitterness. That being said the beer was too sweet for my taste. The bitterness lingered on the back end but were completely overwhelmed up front by the sweet malt flavor. I felt it would have been better dried out a little further. I had read that the AE would stop had limited "branching" and didn't think it would be this explosive. This second ferment has been much more aggressive than the first. I'll keep this thread updated.

No, a little town in Canada called Osage.

Sounds like that AE is really working. I bought some once upon a time to use in a stuck lager but chickened out and never used it.

Krausen has dropped and so I took a hydro sample.

0.99. Wow... I was just hoping to get to 1.01 or so.

On the upside it did taste fantastic and the yeast profile is making its way through the hops. Can't wait to get this dry hopped and bottled to see what it is all about.

Yeah, sort of overshot the landing but if you are happy with the results that's good.
