You bet your ass! My five month brewing hiatus is almost over!

I will tweak the hop additions. I just wanted to get the IBUs straight first. I think I have some gypsum that I can use, as opposed to the Burton salts. I want the goldfish character, so I'm not skimping...

This was my resurrection brew and everything went conspicuously smoothly. I wanted to throw some whirlfloc in but I couldn't find any. So thus far, other than being cloudy - it should be all good. Hopefully my bottling skills are still up to par. I don't want to screw this one up...

What did you go with for carbonation on this? I'm thinking low since its English. Maybe like 1.8-2.0 for more of a cask level carbonation...

Yeah, pretty low. I don't calculate my volumes (I know, bad!) but I just adjust my system to get it where I like it.

i love the name! pure genius- you have no idea actually ive been reveling at that for a while.....although i do think of small retarded children. Is that bad?

Also just wondering about the 133 intermediate rest. What were you hoping to get from that?

I'm on my 3rd batch of this in the last year! It's my SWMBOs favorite recipe, guess I'll be keeping it around for a while!

Yep, same here...she loves it. Extended cold aging really makes it awesomer, too. I haven't made one in awhile, though, and wifey's clamoring for some (and an IPA too).

What dose the Burton salt add?
I have a real flat taste. (it might be green still)
