Insane hopping levels

2014-01-10 8:21am

I know the level of hopping on this seems insane but it's based on historical IPA hopping levels. I'll be splitting it and adding Brett C to half then aging for about 9months to a year. I'll also dry hop in secondary for that time and then add further dry hops for a week or so before bottling. I've made an historical IPA before using Challenger and Goldings at similar but not quite so insane levels and it was amazing after aging.

Plain version - very good

It's pretty harsh in that it's extremely bitter and hoppy but it's very complex and very drinkable. I love it. Not sure I'm going to be able to wait 9 months for the brett version!
