Default Drunken crow ipa

A few weeks back I brewed my first IPA, and self made recipe.
My neighbor being the only critic so far, thinks it is amazing.

11 lbs mo 2 row pale malt
1 lb caramalt
1 pound biscuit.
8 oz Munich (ran out of Munich)

1 oz Columbus hops 75 minutes
1 oz liberty 30 minutes
1 oz Columbus whole leaf ten minutes

1/4 oz dry hop in secondary (columbus, I had an abundance)

Wyeast 1272 activator, and Wilkinson dry ale yeast pack on day 5.

The og was 1.072, dropped to 1.03, made a starter of the ale yeast, brought it down to 1.024.

I was hoping for lower, but I am more than satisfied. I set the psi on 10 for a week, and cannot stop drinking it, and I'm not much for IPA.

My brown ale just finished primary, so if it turns out good, I will post later.
Cheers.

Finished another keg of this. i hate to hear that sad gurgle at the bottom of the keg.

this has been moved to my circulation list, i will brew this as often as possible, and when i get more kegs i intend to keep this one on tap. the first week or so it was probably too bitter, and gave me a hang over, but if you let it mellow out an extra week after carbing it is more than delicious.

i carbed at 10 psi, and served at 10.

can't wait to brew again.
