    I cracked the first bottle of this. 2-3 weeks in the bottle it's nicely carbed.Hoppy nose;
    dark, brown color; interesting bitterness at finish. It also tastes stronger than 3.1% (from
    the buzz test I ...

    Well, a few things.You shouldn't have dry hopped it while the gravity was so high. It's
    fermenting and will blow off the volatile aroma compounds in the hops, rendering your dry
    hopping less than effe...

    Quick follow up (and another question!)Dry hopped it yesterday about 7 days in G has dropped
    from 1.060 to 1.030 which is looking nice, as I wasn't seeing a lot of airlock activity and was
    a little wo...

    No offense but your beer might not taste good at all. That much crystal and special b in the
    will be gross. It certainly won't be anything near an ipa.Can you direct me to a good IPA
    recipe?

    Yeah my first all grain, didn't mill properly is my thinking. Anyway got 1.060 (thanks for the
    correction) from this batch so that isn't a concern now.Thanks for the clarification on the
    smelly bucket...

    If you are having bottle bomb issues you may need to look at things other than the recipe,
    mostly you are bottling too early and not letting the beer finish fermenting. Start there. As
    far as your gra...

    I think you guys are in a different position from me, I've made 2 lots of bottle bombs followed
    by a starting gravity of 10.020 and as my 4th brew I won't need any imagination to taste a
    delicious and...

    Well... truth be told there is no Victory, its special B. I was in the store reading the recipe
    looking at the wall of grains and coundn't find it so opted for the most exciting sounding
    option.I deci...
