Congratulations! Huzzah! And thanks for sharing the recipe. I've changed the title of your recipe thread to indicate that it medaled at the NHC.

Using Magnum Whole as an example, 20.5 is the alpha acid content and 31.1 is the IBUs.

Watch the grain bill. My efficiency is through the roof (92-95%) so go by the percentages

Yup, the red ????? is the IBU's per hop addition

What hops should I grow? Hop grower's comparison table. Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking: a hop-bursted IPA w/ Conan, a farmhouse with ECY08 & brett blend
Fermenting: sour cherry mead
Aging: a bunch of belgian and soured stuff, and acerglyn.
Up next: either an imperial stout or something to use up my homegrown hops... TBD.
