Default Falconers Flight Extra IPA

Hey guys,

Some pics from my first brew - Falconers Flight Extra IPA.

http://s1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/BeKindBrew/

I would say for a first time it went pretty damn well.
We were getting pretty active fermentation within 12 hours of pitching the yeast.

Right now it's still dry hopping. We had pellet Hops so we put the hops in into the bag, to cut down on debris. I plan on letting it sit for at least 10 in secondary (probably just the full 2 weeks though).

It sat for 10 total in primary.. but we needed to use it.

I'll post more when its done...

****Fingers crossed****

Cool burner/stove - is it effective?

Works great... My buddy manages a rental store, so it was a free loaner... Which makes it even better

Did you get this kit from AHS? If so, I'm curious to read the progress because I just bottled the same recipe.

Not gonna lie ... I've been kinda lazy, haven't checked on it in days. I know the temp us stable so I'm not worried... Planning on bottling this Sunday if everything goes according to plan. I'll Update then.

From what the guy at the Lhbs said he thinks that the the falconer is a newtype of hop? Is this true... Anyone have any info on this?

Yeah, it's a new hop, it smelled really good; I can't wait to try it.

Actually it's not a new strain, it's a proprietary hop blend.

Bottled it a few days ago... Tastes great, very nice ipa. Only problem we had was that once we were done sampling we were about 5 beers short of the 48 we were hoping to get

Yeah, mine has been bottle conditioning for about two weeks. I know it's early, but I wanted to try a bottle yesterday, and ended up drinking two; it's good stuff!
