- Tried the wort before pitching the yeast , it was pretty bitter but still pallet able

My fourth beer i brewed kinda just playing with ideas . Ive enjoyed a couple black and dark ipas recently and thought i would give this a try.

Sparge water temp was 170˚ for 60 min , aprox. 5.5 gallons

Boiled 8 gallons wort for 90 mins ,hop additions at

60 min 1 oz centennial

45 min 1 oz centennial

30 min 1 oz centennial

15 min 1 oz centennial

5 min 1.5 lb honey and 1 cup dry malt extract

Cooled in an ice bath over 1 hour.
