They label Gumballhead as an American Wheat, not an IPA. But you are right though, it is
amazing.In your defense, FFF labels a lot of their beers a Pale Ale (Zombie Dust, Alpha King
are some popular e...

Yeah...I would definitely give it at least 3-4 weeks before bottling since it's a pretty big
beer. I usually don't secondary unless I'm adding something like fruit or oak, but that's a
whole 'nother t...

Yeah, I always use the coldest setting.

I wouldn't get too hung up on the numbers. If anything, I'd shoot a little low, like 10% ABV

for the beer t...

Quadruples are the hardest beer I've ever brewed, and the only beer I've tried to make that
turned out undrinkable (twice). A 1.115 OG with only 70% attenuation would be undrinkably sweet

I think weather definitely has a lot to do with it. I've spent today planning a trip to the
lake in July with some old friends and am just giddy at the thought of sitting out on a pontoon

I am thinking it is primarily a change in aroma which I honestly don't fully mind. I just
wonder how I am supposed to know what the flavor is and isn't designed to be. Supposedly it is
