Yup, gonna make this one next. Prolly this weekend...

Going to use the recipe just as it is on the first page, only to substitute whatever hops are available. I'll reply back with my results...

Definitely keep me posted! I love hearing some of the variations that people have found with hop combos.

This is the first recipe on this forum I've tried to replicate. I had a disaster of a brew day. Stuck CFC and I was sucking on tubes between cursing my arse off. Ended up calling in sick to work and sticking the wort in the tub.

Despite that, thing is it turned out really pretty good due to an excellent grain bill. Smooth as all hell. I threw the dry hops in with the yeast because I just wanted to forget about the disaster in the carboy, and I regret it. Absolutely no aroma, but I think the Serachi (first time using) goes well with the dark malts. I wish I had waited for the yeast to settle to dry hop this because with some aroma i'm sure this would be an absolutely incredible brew. Thanks for posting it.

Brewed up 11 gallons of this yesterday. I was playing with beersmith making adjustments and didn't revert back to original when I weighed things out. Ended up with 2.5 oz magnum and over 115 IBU..shortened the boil to 50 minutes trying to compensate as much as I could. After all was said and done, I was at about 100. Hoping it won't be too bitter, so I am expecting to dry hop with a bunch more hops hoping to even out bitterness and aroma.

After 2 weeks, I tried a sample. Very bitter, but also a nice roasty smooth taste. Can't wait to dry hop this and get it carbed. I think I am going to dry hop with double the amount to get a huge aroma up front to balance the strong bitterness of my mistake when brewing.

I didn't see this post before, but I have added habanero's to my version of this beer and it came out great. I wish I would have added more though. I racked one gallon into a small jug and dropped 2 cut up habs into it. The habs were really not that hot so the heat was very subdued. I do plan to do it again at some point and up the heat. In my opinion the strong hop bitterness pairs very well with the peppers. Try Habanero Sculpin if you get a chance. Just my $0.02.

Kept base grains and warrior and swapped to cascade and citra for additions. Brewed last week and first sample hit 1.060 and tastes phenomenal. Cascade to DH soon. Thanks for the groundwork!
