Whats the recipe on this one look like? I've been playing with IPA recipes a lot lately and am looking for new inspiration.
Also, where in south Georgia are you?(Just curious if there are any other brewers hiding around my area)

Just bottled a batch of Dead Ringer a week ago. Total time from pitching yeast to bottling was 17 days. It took 9 days to ferment completely at a steady 66 F in the basement (and was probably actually done in less than a week). Then dry hopped for 8 days - just because my original plan for bottling got pushed back a day, because I forgot about some previous plans. Could've been ready to bottle in only 2 weeks from pitching yeast, if I had been in a hurry.

I don't know how long it takes to carb up when you keg it, but 3 weeks should definitely be possible.

Call me indecisive, but I ordered the Dead Ringer and I'm planning on brewing it this weekend. We'll see how it turns out!

I didn't get the e-mail about it until after I placed the order.

Only 6 of the collector's kit bundles left. Has anybody figured out why the poster's were numbered out of 250 when they said there were 500 of them?

OK, I brewed this today, but the OG reading I took is way off from what the recipe sheet says it should be. It says it should be 1.064, but I got 1.14.

Are you sure the hydrometer is accurate? Try it in plain water to be sure.
What kit did you get, the all grain or extract? Did you do anything different or followed the directions?

I just kegged this tonite, OG was 1.064, FG 1.016, almost perfect. Tasted good in the test jar.
