Well by those hops you may have guessed it was an IPA! You’d be correct. Went for a NEIPA mashed up with a Black IPA. Style Nazis be damned as I will call it whatever I’d like. Pretty smooth brew day. Over shot efficiency and boil off rate leaving me with 1/4 gal less than I was hoping for and 0.005 higher than anticipated OG. I thought of diluting with water but decided to head home instead and rest.

Barley Wine is chugging away at 57% attenuation its 11.3 ABV in just 1 week! Next weeks brew is a toss up as my yeast starter isn’t err… starting. Will need to assess the yeast this evening and decide from there. That being said, next week is going to be a mixed fermentation from bottle dregs OR if that fails a Kviek.
