I kegged this beer and had multiple people taste it, compare it to flower power ipa, and nobody could tell the difference between my homebrew and flower power. I use a large grain bill because I only get about 65% efficiency. If your efficiency is more, then you might be able to slightly lower your grain bill, but why mess with this recipe at all if you like Ithaca Flower Power. I have made this beer many times, so you should feel comfortable to be able to reproduce this.

I've brewed it a number of times, and yes just like the original-- which I love as well. When I batch sparge, i collect until I get about 6.8-7.0 gallons preboil, then boil down to a batch size of 5.3. I'm surre yo will enjoy this beer.Attachment 58110

Here it is about 5 days after it was in my kegerator. It's in a frosted glass as well.

Do I need to do anything different of I am going to bottle it? How much priming sugar should I use?

Dumpsterboy 04-20-2012 08:51 PM

I am not to sure about bottling. I only keg my beers, maybe someone could chime in and answer that question for you.
