Notes

First all grain brew. Intended to semi-emulate some of my favorite IPA's, including the Zythos Double IPA kit from HomeBrewStuff.com (which I've made 4x now) and the gold standard being the Devil Made Me Do It IPA from Haines Brewing Company.

Most of the choices are complete guesses.

Results may be surprising. Hopefully good surprising!

My first all-grain recipe. Brewing tomorrow. What could possibly go wrong?
