You are right.SWMBO and I went to Bridgeport for lunch yesterday and they had the IPA on cask. It was much lighter than mine but the taste was very similar. It's not a very hippy beer.

So I put one of these in the freezer for 22 minutes and this thing came up and I got called away and it ended up being three hours.

I certainly wouldn't want you to get in trouble with the feds for intentionally concentrating alcohol, but I rather enjoyed accidently having concentrated the hops flavor.

All I am saying is if you to get paged and your FWH brew looks part frozen when you finally get back home you probably have a tasty treat waiting for you.

And I got one bottle of biermuncher's original recipe DH in the RIS swap, from biermuncher.

I have to go all grain, not negotiable. Partial Mash is good beer, but now I know better.

Just mind boggling. If I had used that much Crystal in a PM batch my beer would be much darker, and now I think I know what extract twang is.

This one bottle of "free" beer is going to cost me several hundred dollars.

And we bring yet another to the dark side of all grain brewing...

That's what I'm looking for! Bridgeport is the only beer that smells like roses and lychees. The commercial description on Ratebeer lists Cascade, Chinook, Goldings, Crystal and Ahtanum. Any idea which one brings that lychee?

Maybe I'll just have to make a fruit beer with actual lychees....

Cracked open a bottle of Bridgeport and poured a pint of this clone. Pretty damn close! I think another month of aging and it will be spot on.

I'm planning on making a couple more batchs in the next few weeks. I haven't been able to find Phoenix hops anywhere, at my LHBS, or online.
Last batch I substituted Columbus hops. What is everyone else doing? Have you guys been able to get Phoenix hops?

This thread is what caused me to join this forum. I'm going to go buy all the ingredients, and give this one a go. Bridgeport IPA has been my staple beer for years, and now after some extract batches, I want to go all grain. Thanks a million. Will do proper introduction later when I have more time.
