Brewing an IIPA. Using Vinnie/PTE type process but different hopping. (chinook, sorachi, citra, simcoe, centennial, columbus [dry only]).

Tommorrow I am doing a 25% maize 75% 2-row with a little bit of crystal hops for flavor wort that will be a cream ale (san fran lager yeast at a relatively warm temp) and american lager (ayinger yeast).

My brew partner and I brewed 12 gallons of a belgian dubbel and 12 gallons of amber ale AND bottled 6 gallons of Jamil's Black Widow Porter and 6 gallons of a cascade IPA . 9 hours for everything from start to finish, including a run to the LHBS to crush grain because my grain crusher seized up while grinding the second batch. I planned this long day because my wife and three daughters are out of town. My son (11) helped us brew. He has a soccer game this evening and then we are getting tacos and watching a guy movie later (Predator) . All in all it will be a perfect day.
