Figure i'd start one. (shocking i know)
So what's on your brew schedule? All i got is a blackberry wheat i'll be brewing next weekend.
My first created recipe has been ready for about a week now. I gotta say, it's the best beer i've brewed. I call it 3rd prime IPA. It's exactly what i was hoping it to be. Great hop flavor, and malt backbone. I know i might be biased, but i think it's one of the better IPA's i've ever had. And i'm usually very critical of my homebrews.
Its 52 IBU's and 6.3% ABV. I had a thread about it awhile back. Initially it was going to be a pale ale, but i went a little hop heavy. I used Warrior, Chinook, Cascade and Citra, and dry hopped with Cascade and Citra. I whirlpool hopped my first wort hops (warrior). I'll go check my old thread and post the grains used.
I need to let one of the resident homebrewers try it, so i can get some good feedback. Only problem, is that i only got 35 beers out of the batch.
Also, been thinking of some summer brew additions. Blood Orange is one. Fig is another, however i don't know how much flavor would come through. Figs are a little more subdued than an orange or blackberry. Maybe a hefeweizen with fig?
After the blackberry, i may try my hand at a saison.
ETA: This is the malt bill for the IPA.
8.5 lbs 2 Row
1 lb Crystal 20
