I just made 10 gallons of this, I used whole leaf hops with a hop bag, I now understand why so many people use them. my gravity was 1.052 and I pitched US-05 instead because that's what I had on hand. It tasted and smelled great in the keggle. I can't wait to drink this in a few months.
I brewed up a batch of this BIAB about a month ago. It spent 24 days in primary. I had one this weekend after only 5 days in the bottle. Very tasty for being so young. I used Cascades for bittering and Amarillo as late additions. IBUs are around 35. It ended up being 6.5ABV. Very nice color.
