Notes

I came up with this recipe in order to use the hops I grow at home. I harvested the hops the same day I brewed this recipe.

I am pretty sure the IBUs are wrong as I calculated and IBU of around 110 - 120.

If you want to know what this beer tastes like before brewing go pick up a bottle of Founders Redankulous Beer.

Founders released their beer about 30 days after I brewed this recipe.
