Yet another throw out thread to the wiser heads.
I'm going to bottle a recipe-followed IPA this weekend. First ever batch, things seem to be going well, yay me. I'm thinking I'm inclined to turn right around and try another batch but this time just make up a very, very basic recipe.
I've got a hops vine - from pictures on the ol' web, I'm pretty sure they're Millenium. I'm thinking using these plus probably about five or six pounds of DME and some kind of smack pack ale yeast and see what happens. I'm hoping for kind of an aleish result with an alcohol percentage in the 5-6 range.
1) Any ideas on what I can expect?
2) Think it'll suck? Be decent? Wha?
3) Think I'm in the ballpark on alcohol?
