you can brew this just like the recipe and get a good high alcohol bitter IIpa or can cut it down a bit by omitting the corn sugar and change the 90 bitters to 60 reducing the bitterness a bunch, either way its fantastic. Dry hopping goes as follows first batch for 5 to 7 days then pull out and add the second batch for 4 to 5 days, I dry hop the second batch in my keg in a bag under co2, at the end of dry hopping I cold crash in the freezer to drop all particles to the bottom then pull the finished beer off the top and carbonate, you will love this beer

if you cant get WLP007 just use nottingham, works great at 60f for this beer
