brewed this up yesterday. OG came out at 1.075, made some changes to the hop additions as well, had to sub Centennial for the Amarillo. Also, using 1272 instead of S-05 for the yeast.

Everything else is exact, looking forward to this one being done, it will be my first kegged beer. Don't think this keg is going to last long.

Oh man!!! I can't wait for this thing to be done... it has a crazy vigorous fermentation going right now and is smelling awesome.

Ah just brewed this and it came out incredible!
I scaled it down to a ~3 gallon brew and tweaked the grain bill just slightly:

7lbs - 2-Row
1lb - Crystal 40
1lb - Carapils
.5lbs Munich

I'm wondering... would you guys consider this an American IPA or an Imperial IPA (based on BJCP style guidelines that is)

Technically, I think it fits the latter. IBUs too high for regular IPA.

So.... I hope my beer is still good.

I went out to check on it last night, as I do everyday. My ferm chamber is in my shop out back, an old fridge with a temp controller attached. Anyways, I opened up the refrigerator door and was surprised by a lack of an airlock or bung in my BB. It was laying in the back of the fridge in a pile of gunk that at one time I can only assume was krausen.

I boiled this batch up on Saturday and pitched, attaching my blow off hose and let it ride. Checked it on monday and the krausen had fallen to what I was considering a safe level since the air lock vessel I was using for the blow-off was filthy from all the junk that got blown into it. So, since it appeared safe I changed out the blowoff for my airlock and bung.

Fast forward to yesterday, I went out to check it and found that at some point between Tuesday afternoon, I say that because I have a habit of making daily checks on the ferm chamber as I'm sure most of you do, and Wednesday afternoon the fermentation had taken off again and caused the krausen to rise back up and get into my airlock, stopping it up and causing the building pressure to blow it out of the BB. I had another bung and airlock in the cabinet so I did a quick wash, rinse and sanitize and put that one in place.

All that being said, I'm hoping that with the CO2 production and the krausen coming out of my BB that it kept out any bacteria.

I know, RDWHAHB, but I just hope that everything is ok with this one as I was really looking forward to this one being my first keg beer.

mine came out to 8.2%, but I overshot the OG just a tad.

Brewed this up today with my brother. I made zero substitutions or alterations. Ended up with EXACTLY 6 gallons after a 90 min boil. Added oak chips to fermenter as perscribed. Gravity reading was 1.082. Hydro taste test was very rich, sweet then the hops kick in and hang out forever. I like it already! Looking forward to adding the 3 ounces of hops for dry hopping. Cheers!
