Tried this in the Recipe forum, but no luck. Maybe it's too difficult to respond to, but still, thought I'd try again. Especially interested in any other hop suggestions...Thanks.
I made a pretty good IIPA - but it was MB sized and used a can of Cowboy Lager.
Below is the recipe modified for 5 gallons, but without the MB hop and malt info. Extract brewing. I'd be interested in any suggestions for specialty grains to maybe adjust for what the Cowboy had (or suggestions in general).
Also - though it was dang good, I wouldn't have minded more citrus/fruit notes in the final product. Any other hop suggestions are appreciated - particular if they might add these flavors.
Aiming for a high 7-8% abv and certainly IBUs 100+. Will obviously up the DME and probably will use S-o5 again. Thanks.
