It would probably be interesting to do an "early american" IPA with it. I also think some of the early american beers (Like Ben Franklins, Washington's or T-Jefferson's recipes would be interesting to do with them.)
The last time I used it was in a Mad Elf clone and it fit in really well.

This beer sat in a bucket for more than a month.......
Wow this makes me feel a lot better. I'm brand new to brewing and the thing I still haven't gotten a hold on is calming down. I started with John Palmer's book and tried to absorb all the science in it. I'm focusing too much on the little things before I get comfortable brewing.

Thanks for keeping this beginner grounded.

Commoners made beer for thousands of years in squalor. People micromanage the process to much. If beer wasn't forgiving I doubt it would have stayed this popular for so long.

The only time micro managing is appropriate is if your trying to recreate exact beers for comp or commercial use. Most recipe will turn out at least good at any mash temp within range. Or many different hop types or additions. Or really any way you brew em.

revvy I had a question for you. You mentioned hot side aeration to be a myth. I don't agree or disagree due to extensive info both supporting and debunking it. I was wondering what your personal opinion was. You can PM me if would like. Thanks

We brewed this last night (BiaB) and wow we got terrible efficiency. We hit our strike and sparge temps. We realized we were under when we took the pre boil grav, but we did a partial boil and couldn't figure out what our diluted final grav would be. We added a bit of brown sugar cause we didnt have any dme. Final grav is 1.040 (58% efficiency). It should still be great.

Im brewing this next weekend,im trying to get rid of hops because i have more than grain.And im trying to use them up. Any reason not to add some more hops at flame out?-think i might. Im going to use some "gingered" ale beer slurry also, I dont think it would hurt, it was 05 yeast. Probably using galena hops also but possibly hallertau,or both even. Ill post back my results.I believe in sticking to particular ingredinets for good results for recipes but sometimes good things happen otherwise,im hoping this is the case,i need to use up my supply before they use me up.

Brewing this up as I type. Started with 8.5 gallons pre boil with a Sg of 1.036. My numbers in beersmith must be wrong somewhere cause it says my mash efficiency is 112%. Not really possible.

Edit: into the carboy at 1.050. I will take it

I have a whiskey barrel I've been itching to use. I was contemplating using it for a batch of this brew I have in the primary right now. On the other hand, I've also thought about just trying it as is this time since I've never brewed it before. Anyone have any experience going this route?
