That IPA looks tasty Chad [love]


I am becoming a real fan of IPA's but they have to kick some butt in the taste department, some are very mellow, like the one i tasted from Western Australia the other night, if you going to do an IPA put some bloody hops in it, and i mean HOPS!!!.


I am going to do some oak chips soaked in wild turkey in the stout i am working on.

This IPA turned out way better than I had hoped for. The Oak chips were an experiment that seemed to work out very well. They truly add another flavour profile to an already rich malty brew.


I have plans to put down another one coming up soon. This time I plan to add some crystal malt to improve the head retention and I may substitute the cascade for amarillo.[unsure] Soaking the chips in whiskey would add something I'm sure.[devil]

Must add my latest.


Made a Wosiusco Ale formally Mt Selwyn Pale Ale.

Tried it at 3 weeks in the bottle, it is A1, but you will need to like Galaxy hops. But a very nice drink for such an early taste.
