Why do I read IPA recipes at 4:00PM on a weekday?

Man I'm thirsty.

You know, Wayne, it's funny. I was paging through my old brewing notebook, and I found an IPA I made sometime in the early '90's, around '93 or '94.

It was an extract clone (I have no clue who by) of "Wayne Waananen's Vail Pale Ale."

My notes say it was pretty good.

I'm glad you tried it out. I was giving away 5 gallon recipe sheets for the beers at beer fests, so homebrewers could try them out.

Maybe you picked one up at GABF.

I also posted a variation of the recipe on HBD in '95.

I brewed this up a week ago tomorrow as my first ever all-grain brew. I figured I'd let you know, Wayne1, as both a point of interest, and a nod-of-the-cap to what is sure to be a delicious recipe.

Many thanks for posting it - a big help to a newbie like me.

For what it's worth, after week one, things are bubbling away sweetly and everything looks amazing. I'll probably just let it settle out in primary at 20C for the full month and then carefully bottle. I'm not as concerned about clarity, and if I'm lucky, this will be plenty clear after that long anyways.

Looking forward to letting everyone know how it turns out.
