Long story short, the beer was tasty, but not an IPA. More of a bitter. It was so tasty, in fact, that we ended up tweaking the recipe to turn it into a genuine bitter which we brewed last week. (We still don’t have a name).
All that to say, does anyone else have a brewing- or life-related success story that “rose out of the drudges of a cockeyed IPA” (so to speak)? As with any new endeavor, our brewing is bound to encounter more slip-ups and, er, learning opportunities. Any other favorite mistakes out there?
