    I know this topic is fairly redundant, but I didn't find any great answers with my search and
    wanted some interaction with people for this. I recently got my mitts on three pin lock kegs
    and a 10 lb c...

    I am curious in hearing a recipe for this as well. I have a 7% ABV all columbus IPA at home and

    I brewed an IPA (2.5 gallon) on Monday that took 3.5 hours from start to finish. Felt like

    ambient temp ~66 deg to see if I get better results.
