We brewed a double IPA with $85 worth of hops. 

Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe to the tune of 28 ounces and 215 IBU.  Two row, a tiny amount of dextrine and Crystal 40 make up the grain bill.

We added 2 pounds of candi sugar to bring it up to 1.069 OG. 
We will pitch WLP001 and WLP090 in the two fermenters.  We also added Fermencap and Clarityferm as well. 

We hit all our numbers and, with a 90 minute mash and a 90 minute boil, it was a very mellow brew day. Only one problem, when carrying one of the fermenters it slipped out of the carrying handle and crashed onto the floor. Fortunately, it was a plastic “Better Bottle” and we righted it with a loss of only a quart of wort.

Two doses of dry hopping lay ahead. Then glorious hop heaven!
