Finally brewed this today. Used dry yeast, and added 1.5lbs honey after adding the extract. The sheet listed 1.040 O.G., I measured 1.050 with the honey. I'll leave this in primary for probably 3 weeks. After seeing some of those videos, went with the blowoff tube instead of the tiny airlock

I think I'm going to brew sierra madre and caribou slobber this weekend and bottle my ipa, glorious!

I had no issues fermenting in a bucket, the krausen was no bigger then others I've brewed in the past, prob 2 inches or so. Let me know how your batches turn out.

I added 1 pound of honey, and 1 oz of cracked peppercorn to this kit, and I love it, really good ice cold.

I brewed this as my 2nd batch. I used a 6g glass carboy with an airlock. I had no issues at all during fermentation. I added 3oz of blueberry extract. It took a little longer for the flavors to even out than I expected. After 3 weeks in the bottles it was very good though.
