Despite the title, yesterday was wonderful at my house. Steak, asparagus, chocolate covered strawberries and a nice sparkling wine followed by a liter of Amber.
But I'm making an IPA today and I need a clever name.
I'm not sure about Bitter Valentine but that's what it's going to be.
This is a completely new IPA. The old recipe was OK, decent I guess. But I really want to make one that shines, so I started from scratch. Here's the recipe.
I hit the mash temp well and only lost one degree by the end of it. 150 was the target. I want this beer to be a little thinner. I increased the boil to 70 minutes to drive off DMS.
Next I'll make Moose Highland, my Goose Island IPA clone.
Good beer to you.
