Nah that's just what I did. I use demijohns for primaries, and I knew I wanted to wait for secondary to dry hop, so I racked to a demijohn for a secondary so I could dry hop the batch as a whole. Usually I go to two carboys for secondary.

I figured a couple weeks was enough. It probably could have gone longer. But I wanted the demijohn. Since I wanted the beer to batch age more, I racked to carboys. Thus the tertiary fermenter.

Thanks Janx!!! Good information. I had wondered about racking to a third to allow for a final conditioning before bottling.

I tell you what though, my love for hops has grown immensely because of this recipe. Do you know of any other high hopped recipes? Or any other Bear Republic recipes?

From drinking many of their beers, they seem to share my love of hops. Man is that some good beer!!!

That's the best and the hoppiest Bear Republic makes I think. To be honest, I almost never drink any of their other beers when I'm there because I love the HRR too much

A couple of other beers that I'm interested in trying to replicate are the Indica Pale Ale from Lost Coast (not quite as hopp as HRR, but a really great bitter beer with a unique malt character), and Moylan's IPA (a beast of an IPA...I know it has Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial...sound familiar? ). The brewer at Moylan's was really nice, and may help me concoct a recipe if I asked. I'll have to see the next time I'm down there.

I usually just wing recipes. I use a IBU calculator and get the bittering hops right, then layer a ton of hops over the course of the last 20 minutes or so for flavor and aroma...you really can't do too much. Add some crystal and/or medium dark adjunct grains to round out the grain bill and you got yourself an IPA.

I'll look through my recipes tomorrow and see if I can't find a standout or two. Cheers!

this is a really nice IPA, in my opinion, strong and way hoppy. I'm drinking one now and have more in primary, need to rack this weekend.

one more thing about Hop Rod - that recipe says 7.2%ABV; the original is 8% according to the bottle!

Tony,
Check out Brew Your Own magazine. They cloned 8 or 10 "hop-head" brews. Maybe 3-4 isues back????? Most ranged from 80-100 IBU's. Some were in the 60-70 range.

Going to Bear Rep this weekend and can't wait.

Think we might try to hit up 3rd street also on Friday night - Saturday and Sunday will be all about wine tasting and then maybe a Brewery in SF on the way home Monday.

Not sure if I could ask for a better weekend.
