Can't let this thread die off. I brewed the AHS mini mash (no citra) yesterday. It was only 20* out. I did use some of the snow in the yard as the water source. Probably only a gallon, but enough to let me call it a Snow Torpedo. SG was 1.065 (close enough to the target of 1.072).
Primary: Skeeter Pee
Secondary: Meads: Carmel Apple, Wines: Sangiovese, Dragon's Blood, Viognier, Beer: None
On Deck: Dragon's Blood Blueberry, Double Dragon's Blood Original, Pinot Noir

So this is what I brewed on 8 dec and tapped today.

10 gallon all grain-90 min boil

28lbs 2-row
1 1/2lbs crystal 60l
2.5oz magnum (60 min)
1 Wirloft tablet (15 min)
2oz magnum (5 min)
2oz crystal (5 min)
2 packs wyeast 1056 American ale yeast
1.4oz magnum (dry)
1.4oz crystal (dry)
1.4oz citra (dry)

Mashed in 10 gallons water at 167 degrees f
Steeped at 156 degrees f for 60 min
Fly sparged 175 degrees f for 15/20 min

Fermented 5 days. Then dry hopped in the primary for 9 days. Secondary for 8 days. Kegged and force carbed 24 hours.

O.G. 1.075 F.G. 1.016 ABV 8%
IBUs according to beer smith 66.9

This turned out amazing. By far the best IPA I've ever had. I've never had a SN torpedo but I'm going to go to the store and pick up a 6 pack just to compare the two. If u like IPAs you should definitely try this one. Enjoy.
