I'm brewing this recipe this weekend! It will be the first time I brew an IPA and the first time I dry hop. My LHBS has real Centennial and not "Centennial Type" for the first time also. Should be a good one!

Ok, so i just kegged this and it is really good. However, it definitely does not have the hoppy power of the real Stone or even Ruination. Any suggestions or input? Anyone else feel the same? How can I get a little more hoppy punch but still maintain the integrity of all the flavors the beer should have per the recipe?

Consider checking your water profile- there may be something in there hindering your hop progress.

This beer rocks ! let it condition for at least 2-3 weeks you will be amazed......
I would like to add 1oz of citra as I really like the citrus hint. Any suggestion on when to add to the boil?

Also this is interesting I bottled 2 gallons and kegged 3 gallons....the bottled beer has just a little more body than the kegged beer and is a little darker, any input on this and why ??



thank you...

Ed, do you ever have problems with hops residue getting in your keg valves and poppets ?
