I brewed the extract version last year and agree with MMJfan. The ginger is too strong in the

I brewed up my batch of this last night. I badly miscalculated my boil off rate so I wound up

Get yourself a plastic tote and some frozen jugs of water and make a cheap swamp cooler to keep
your fern temps down. It's worth it because this is a great recipe! If you don't understand

Long story short... I bought ingredients to brew the 60 Minute IPA in Sam Calagione's Extreme
Brewing book. Life got busy and I didn't get to brew it this spring. Now it's summer and I'm
