Default Anyone brewed Ferocious?

Has anyone brewed Ferocious from Midwest Supplies? I just ordered it. This will be my second brew ever. My first brew is still in the primary. Its been there for a week and has one more to go.

If anyone has brewed Ferocious do you have any recommendations or tips to ensure success?

It's a clone of Surly Furious...The greatest IPA ever made!

I'm sure it's a great kit

This is on my list. I got my beginners kit from Midwest, but I got their HopHead extract kit for my first batch...

Northern brewer actually has a surly furious kit, not a clone...a collaboration with surly's masterbrewer. If done right, it's AMAZING!

It does say on Midwest's description of Ferocious that it was, "Created with the brewers of Surly Brewing in Minnesota..." fwiw. Midwest's kit is also slightly cheaper than NB's btw.

Yeah, I actually read that yesterday while on midwest's website. Midwest's recipe is different though. The nb kit is perfect...a buddy of mine has brewed it several times, and it's amazing

I'm sure NB's kit is great, but MW's has a ton of 5* reviews of it's own and I'm sure there isn't that much of a deviation...

I'm sure the Midwest version is good, and all this talk has made me wanna buy their version...that's why I was on the site the other day.

I will say, there is actually a very big difference in the recipe from one to the other. Check it out.

Brewed MW's version of this clone over the weekend and it smells great in the fermenter! Have one ounce of each of Ahtanum, Amarillo and Simcoe for the dry hop which I'm planning to add in 2 weeks...
