I would have to say my favorite home brew that i've done to date was a version of the Darth Vader IPA http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/dart...ck-ipa-218904/
I wanted to make it alittle differnet so used 80L crystal and .75# of special roast instead of only a half pound.
I also changed up the hops and used the following schedule:
1 oz Magnum 17% - 60 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 45 min.
1 oz Fuggles 5.2% - 15 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 0 min.
Dry hop 1 oz cascade for 7 days.
And used nottingham instead of 05.
Came out amazing. Huge aroma up front, the first sip is amazingly roasty, but then the bitterness and hop flavor comes in. It was a hit, even with people that don't like hoppy beers.
