I had an old Trappist yeast that needed using, and since I accidentally popped the nutrient bag when I was moving ingredients the other day, now is the time. So, with a midweek brew, I look for a real quick extract brew day since I have seven extracts left from the contest stash. I decided to do the IPA extract with this Trappist yeast. Should be interesting. Also added a pound of honey and 3/4lb of pilsen DME. Quick hop boil with some old Summit hops (I cut the AA in half as an estimate based on their age) and new Centennial hops. Hit my OG pretty well. This is the first high grav I've done in a while. Hoping for the best...
