Mine is in the keg. Don't know if it's supposed to be that way, but it ended up being very malty. Reminds me of a 90 Minute from Dogfish Head.

wiskey,

I brewed this batch twice. The first one turned out to be one of my best batches, and the second turned out to be one of my worst.

Further tips:

-If doing all grain, take into consideration your efficiency, as you may end up well over the intended starting gravity.
-Be careful with hop additions and boil over after their addition.
-Use Fermcap to help prevent boil overs.
-Set up camp next to the boil because the continuous hop additions don't allow for much free time.
-Make sure to use a blow off tube, because if you go with standard air lock, you can expect a huge mess.

As a side note, I chose to go with Wyeast American Ale II #1272 and fermented at lower temps to get the citrus flavor on my first batch and the grapefruit/citrus complemented the hops perfect IMO. It was kind of close(I wish) to Bell's Hopslam.

Thanks for the tips boot! I bought the extract kit due to me being lazy, but I plan on keeping a close eye on the boil regardless. When you say you fermented at the lower end of the temp, what was is consistently at? I also went with the Wyeast 1056 rather than changing the recipe, just to get a baseline.

Centennial would be wonderful. Ever thought of using Citra to dryhop?

I had the ambient temp of my fridge set between 58-60 and the temp on the carboy was around 61-63 degrees. I had done a few batches with 1056 and I wanted to give 1272 a try to see if there was a difference, and for me, it was a great match for this beer.

I brewed this about 3 months ago (extract version). I followed the recipe exactly. Only difference was I repitched with T-58 at bottling. My beer was fully carbed at the 2 week mark. Let me tell you guys this kit is pricey, but it is my best brew yet! It's really hard for me not to drink it all in one sitting. It's got high ABU's, but just like DFH's 90 min it's got a strong malt backbone that balances it out. It's got a strong mango flavor with floral notes in it. If you like Port Brewery's Mongo IIPA and Firestone Double Jack, then you will LOVE this beer!

It's pretty easy too. I directly pitched the S-05 into it without a starter and fermented between 68-70°F. No hassles!

I'm definitely brewing this one again after the Nugget Nectar and Pliny clones I have lined up.

Default So, what really is the Hopburst mix?

Have made this twice and all time favorite of family & friends. Super flavor and unbelievable balance for having so much hops. No carbonation issues, as I kegged it and hit the CO2

Has anyone figured out really what is in the HopBurst blend. I've seen lots of guesses - but no definitive answer.

Best guess so far is: 3oz each of Cascade, Crystal, Goldings - E.K. and Warrior
