Thanks to all who came over to Jeff’s last night to brew with us. I think we had around 30 people ? which is close to a record. We had our hefeweizen and our scotch ale on tap. I was actually so busy running around that I didn’t have either. Except for the glass of combination hefe-scotch ale Joel poured for me. Thanks Joel.
Among those noticeably absent from Jeff’s house was Jeff, who was stuck at work. Fortunately, Joel and I were able to put on our brewmaster boots and pulled off what should become a nice IPA.
The IPA is one of the first beers we ever brewed (back in the extract days) and we’re still trying to get our recipe just right. To that end, we kept it pretty basic. Grain. Hops. I think there’s some water in there. Maybe some yeast. And Joel’s “special ingredient,” a huge hairball.
