I've always been a fan of hops straight into the carboy. Primarily because I don't want any influence in flavor from something like a cheesecloth. It's ok in the boil, but I hesitate to throw in a cheesecloth to my fermenting brew. Even the slightest dust, dirt, or whatever can tweak the brew in an unknown way. I like to eliminate variables.

I've been meaning to get around to this recipe for some time and after what I just did for my 29 lb grain barleywine, I think I will go the same route for the Tits-Up: rescale the recipe for two 3.5 gallon batches (mayb3 4.0 gallon) and put into two 5 gallon glass carboys for primary, then combine into a 6 gallon glass carboy for secondary. Helps not only with giving me extra room in my 8 gallon boil kettle but also eases the mashing and dealing with sludge loss when transferring.

This was my first time making a beer this large so I figured my normal 70-72% efficiency would be down a bit, more like the 64 that the recipe was designed for.

Managed to still hit 70+% so needless to say my gravity is a bit high. Add to that my boil off was a bit higher than normal...

6 gallons of 1.090 wort will soon be bubbling away in my basement tonight. I just got done cleaning up.

Just discovered the recipe section of the forum.

This looks a lot like the ipas and double ipas ive been brewing up. Ive found I like to stay away from the medium or darker crystals. Even c40 im not too fond of for beers with the columbus.cascase.amarillo.citra.centennial type hops. Honey malt and c10 to 20 with varying amounts of sugar so the beer finishes dry is a match made in heaven. I tend to stay away from any other specialty malts and stick with vienna or munich for part of the base if im looking for a different malt profile. I must say, MO is really peaking my interest instead of the standard 2row for the majority of my base malt.

I never had a beer judged but am pretty confident my ipas would do well if this one did. Maybe this will be my first brew of a recipe other than my own.

Looks good muncher

Overshot a bit, but even the wort tastes great. Can't wait to sit down with a pint of it.
