Wanted to get something in the last fermenter today, and after some debate, I decided to find out if I properly harvested the Torpedo IPA yeast from my last IPA. I've been on an English Ale kick of late, so this may be the last IPA for a while, as I have several English ales spec'd out and am anxious to get going on them.
I had some chinook, which is a hop that I haven't used yet but was really interested in using. It is described as "medium, spicy, piney, distinctive grapefruit." Sounds right up my alley. Everything else is a scrap of leftover items from previous brews, including an extra can of ADIPA and a bag o' Booster.
No grains on hand today, so straight to the DME/hop boil, making it a pretty quick brew evening.
