Posted in thread: To squeeze the grains or not. on 09-17-2014 at 06:20 PM

Posted in thread: First time hop stand and IPA recipe advice? on 09-16-2014 at 11:13 PM
Are you using the DME to gain more alcohol without using more 2 Row? Personally I would ditch

These are all great ups for your IPA. How much are you planning on using, or how much do you

I followed this info from Flyguy when I made mine. Worked perfect and couldn't be happier with
