I cracked open the first bottle of my second batch yesterday, and it was effing great!! It was based off Midwest's Ferocious IPA extract kit, but I modded it a good deal, just to play around. I added the extract 25/75 at boil and 55 minutes, added a pound of honey at flame out, and changed the hops up, adding Cascade and Chinook to the mix, while dropping the Warrior. i used White Labs Ale yeast. I added whirfloc late in the boil, and cold crashed two days before bottling, after sitting in the primary for three and a half weeks. I dry-hopped in the primary, in a hop bag. It might be one of the best IPAs I've literally ever had! It's very grapefruity, which i love. If I wasn't hooked on homebrewing before this batch, I sure as hell am now!
I will be making this one again!
Thanks to all of you on this forum for your awesome advice for a n00b like myself!
