I believe my og was around 1.068-1.070 and I used wlp 007 the dry english ale strain, next time
Ill try either 001 or the new san diego strain 090. Part of my recipe included sugar although I

Id personally scale back the dark malts, and I don't care for the taste of chocolate malt in a
black IPA, but that's just my opinion. I'm drinking a pint of mine right now and it had 1.25
lbs of caraf...

I went with .120 and I think its way overkill. Id guess it weighs more than 100lbs and I'd feel
comfortable using it as a jack stand for a Peterbuilt. Its is however a bit more forgiving when

I'm in the process of building my Brutus out of 2x2x.120 and I can tell you its waaayy
