Made a Coppers English Bitter (don't be a hater yet..!!!:O) Did a partial mash with 1.5# 2row and some biscuit malt & Carapils & Crystal60 (150gram total {50grams each}). Boiled everything (wort, Coopers Hop LME, and 500grams of Coopers Light Dry Malt) for 20min with 0.5oz of East Kent Golding in about 1.25 gal of liquid..
Topped everything to 5gal and used Notty for yeast..

This was the 1st beer I ever made about 4yrs ago,, Do the same brew every year to remember where I started and how far I have come..

I just picked up the ingredients to do a Red Ale in my new fermenter. I also just bottled a winter ale that should be ready to sample next Sunday.

I'll be brewing a black ipa/cda tomorrow. Second batch on my own, third overall. Hopefully it'll be as good as the first two brews.

My first beer of 2013, and the last at my current residence.. So it's a bit of bittersweet, yet exciting brew for me.

It's gonna be a basic grist for an IIPA.. 2row/Munich/Vienna/C40, and then 3/4# of hops for a 5g batch.

Chinook, Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade, Citra all together in there... Should round out around 8.25% ABV, and 85 IBU's.

About to put it into the fermenter now after I've let it sit from cooling/whirlpooling.

9oz of hops in the boil, with 3oz to go for dry hopping.
