Going to be brewing this 10/25/14! Will let everyone know how it comes out.

Fun fact, forgot the Corn Sugar but collected less wort and hit my OG (1.082). Will be interested to see how this tastes vs when I brew it correctly.

Started dry hopping this weekend, 11/8/14. The yeast did too good of a job. Knocking the FG to 1.010 = 9.45% ABV.The taste, however, was fantastic. Couldn't really tell that it was a 9.5% beer. Even drinking out of the test tube with zero filtration the hops we're crazy overpowering. The end was bitter but, again, there was no filtering that disturbance the addition of 4 oz for dryhopping and swirling caused.Has solid potential, can't wait to bottle this weekend (provided my 2nd kid doesn't come between now and then).

Added last round of dry hops last night. Had a false alarm today!! Hunter is probably coming in the next day or two! Can he wait till Sunday?? That'd be great so I can bottle THIS baby!!

Finally bottled. Only got 3 gallons of beer from this brew (granted I only collect 4.5 gallons in lieu of the 5.5 I was aiming for). I did get 4 additional beers from the trub but they are mostly hops. Lost 1.5 gallons to trub. I know there's a lot of hops in this brew but I wasn't expecting the amount of hops at the bottom of the bucket.Anyone know of a really good way to filter hops?
