brew day

My first brew: American IPA.  I split the 5 gallons into two batches, one with an American ale yeast and the second with an English ale yeast.

Fermentables: 1.5 lbs – American 2-Row; 8 oz – CaraHell; 8 oz – Cara Vienne

Hop Additions: 2 oz Columbus (bittering); 1 oz Cascade (aroma)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE hoppy beer.  I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful the hops smelled just out of the bag.  I pinched off a bit of one of the pellets to give it a try…very bitter.  I wonder how hops would be in a cake?
