Been a month or two, but I finally got around to making a couple new brews. These are both firsts for me... a Black IPA and an Oatmeal Coffee Stout. The coffee will be added once fermentation is complete.

Black IPA so far seems awesome. No real signs of roastyness.. just has a nice pitch black color. Chinook, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops :drool:
The stout seems great as well. Flavor has some nice roast to it but the texture is fvckin awesome. The oatmeal made it very creamy.

Cant wait for these to be drinkable























Little bit o yeast

Very nicely done!!!
I have a question, does your hop bag seem to keep the hop particles from giving you an inch of trup after boil? I recently did an IPA, used pellets, and after 4oz of hops, it was rediculous the amount of hop trub and cold break.

Yea, it does a great job of keeping the crud off the bottom. There's been a few times where i havent used it and wished I had..lol

Thanks for the pics. I don't think I've ever had a Black IPA. I need to look into this.
