Be careful - your keg may spring a leak. Or at least, that is how you will have to explain it to your SWMBO when you kick in in two weeks

It is a very easy drinking, smooth beer. The more you drink it, the more you will be addicted. I remember many a weekday I was tipping one back, one after another....

I think the only think mine was lacking was the hop aroma (doing that this time around)

Enjoy!

Trust me.. I was 2.5 pints in last night, when I had to call it quits. I had a significant buzz on before dinner! My carbonation isn't quite right though. I did 36 hours at 30psi, and then 24 hours at 14psi. Needs another few days I think.

Ha ha - good stuff.

When my buddy came over he said the same thing. He was like... "trust me I can hold my liquor, but after a pint and a half, I can already feel it".

Shortly after he came over and started his first home brew batch at my house.

Man.. I love hoppy IPA's, my favorite style by far, but I really wish they didn't have to have such high ABV's

Rick500- Do you think it would be better to use and american 2-row for the base grains, or something like maris otter? I am trying to decide which bag of grains to buy, and which is more versatile.

Thanks!

I think it depends what you want to brew. 2-rwo is more neutral than MO, and is usually used for American Style Ales, etc.

I buy 2-row by the 55lb bag, and am always running out. It comes down to personal preference though, but I think MO gives a more Malty tone. I like my IPA's to be fairly neutral so the hops can come through!

Thanks for the info - what brand (Briess/NW, etc?) of 2row do you like (my first bag).

I figured for the styling that american 2row would be where it is at for this IPA. I figure for many american IPAs - which I love, so it makes sense to buy that.

I live in Canada, but I believe it's Weyermann. Seems great to me, but I don't really know the difference The price is right though.. we pay $35 taxes in for 55lbs.

Very cool - thanks for the tip! I can't wait to BIAB this stuff.

Off topic but...

I used to live in Potsdam, NY - right near Canada. Spent a lot of time up in Ontario and really loved it - I know, Ontario is huge

We used to cruise up to montreal, and then when i was in Buffalo, Ny for a while I was going to little niagara and some of the great place up there.

I think you'll notice a huge improvement in your beers. When I went to AG from extract it was like a revelation...
