Some explanation...

For this batch I used Jolly Pumpkin dregs stepped up a bunch of times, but if I were brewing this at the brewery I'd use brett brux. I like JP dregs a little more but both are good. There are no flavoring hops, just dry hops. That's because I want to give this two months in primary before dry hopping and packaging so the FG can stabilize, and the hop flavor would be lost by then. Kinda low IBUs for a triple IPA, but since brett can add a little tartness I think it will balance out. If it doesn't, I'll add more bittering hop tea at bottling.

Should be a pretty interesting brew to say the least. I'll post how it turns out.

Just racked this to secondary. Definitely went the right direction with this. After one month, the JP dregs took it from 1.100 to 0.99! It tastes very strong, malty, a bit fruity, a bit funky, and a little tart. It has a very nice aroma. Would not want any more IBUs or any less. Also...14% ABV! I didn't do anything besides pitch a ton of JP dregs...no ramping up temps or swirling the fermenter.

I am going to secondary this for another month and then dry hop.
