Notes

Supposed to be a 10 litre batch of Imperial IPA but completely overdid it on the top-up water and screwed up my OG. So I ended up changing the brewlength on this recipe to 12 litres

Here is the original targets before I cocked up the brew day: OG: 1072, FG: 1012, IBU: 100+, SRM: 12, ABV: 7.7%

I’m expecting this to be really bitter because the IBU is way off the scale for the style due to all those 60 minute Chinook additions.

17/01/2012 – Dry-hopped with 15g cascade. FG: 1.012

22/01/2012 – Bottled with carb drops.

Tasting – Beer was overly bitter, but not undrinkable. It did take quite a while to condition.
