    Best DIPA Recipe, and favorite hop additions

    Just looking for a really good hazy Ipa recipe, I’m not quite as experience with malts yet to put together a good grain bill. I’m looking for something resembling “Dead Wax” by foam brewers in VT. Overall though I’m just looking for a really good super hazy IPA though, so anything helps.

    No hydrometer for testing primary fermentation

    About 5 days ago I brewed an IPA and set it aside for primary fermentation. It started bubbling no problem but I noticed that I accidentally overfilled the sanitizer solution in the airlock which made it more difficult for the bubbles to get out, so now on Day 5 it is bubbling every 30-60...
