Biermuncher, if you're getting into hoppy IPAs then I would recommend buying your hops in bulk! I used to pay $2-$2.50/ounce, now I pay $12-$14 per lb. I usually hold back and get 3 or so lbs per order, or me and a buddy will get upwards of 10lbs in a group order. I use hopsdirect.com and have been happy with their packaging (foil and vacuum sealed) and shipping times. I'm not affiliated, but I like them. Cheers!

Thanks but I've been buying by the pound for about 2 years now.

BM I plan on brewing this for my next batch, I may have missed it in the thread but has anyone tried this with Wyeast 1056 with a nice big starter?

What would you guys suggest for these hops which are on hand for me. Galena, Pearle, Cascade, Amarillo, Willamette and Citra. Really don't want to buy more hops because I need to get rid of these ones. Thanks everyone.

BM, is the corn sugar used in the actual mash or in the boil? Sorry if this is a stupid rookie question, my first thought was in the boil but you listed it with the rest of the grains for the mash so I just wanted some clarification.

The corn sugar goes into the boil pot at the time of sparging. Stir it up good before flame on so the sugar does sit on the bottom and scorch.

Awesome Thanks, BM. I'm actually brewing this again next weekend. The last batch came in about 10 points low on the gravity due to a poor crush. Luckily I had ordered a Barley Crusher and we'll see how the efficiency improves over the last batch.

My first batch also came out quite a bit low but holy crap is it good. Only been in the bottle 2 weeks and my brew partner convinced me to throw one in the fridge to try while we brewed this weekend. It was incredible. I would put it up against some of my favorite big IPA's. It's hard to beat Pliny but I would drink it right up with Sculpin or Just outstanding. I bottled the 2nd batch today which is good because we ended up drinking 4 more bottles of the first batch yesterday. In honor of your tribute to Pliny I found it fitting that we bottled it mostly in Pliny and Blind Pig bottles. Luckily I can get that stuff most of the time and have a large collection of those nice 18 oz bottles on hand. this will definitely be a regular at my place.
