I'd be very interested to hear what you guys shoot for when formulating your IPA hop combos. Do you hope to get a specific character out of that combination? A general hop range, like dank + pine;...

It's great. I did one recently: http://www.bear-flavored.com/2013/05/recipe-and-tasting-notes-100-brett.html

One of my most popular batches even among people who "don't normally like IPAs."

You need to drink Heady within 2-3 weeks of canning, preferably one week, honestly. I mean, for maximum, peak flavor. By six weeks, I would have to imagine it just tastes like a fairly standard...

Were we still debating whether to use dextrose? I would assume the turbinado would just replace that. Can't imagine it's a very large amount, probably >4%. And maybe he varies the percentage of sugar...

You know how Rogue brewed a beer recently with yeast cultivated from their brewer's beard?

Again, I would not store the Brett in the fridge. It will die off much faster. Store it at room temp.
