Full Name: Luke Kneewalker mistaking Wookie for good lookin' nookie Double IPA
Grain miscalculation resulted in extra sparging and a 90 minute volume reduction boil. Bad as far as time and energy go, but got some nice kettle caramelization that enhanced the maltiness of this beer. Next time - use more grain.
Golden Promise malt and Spalt hops were used because I had them on hand.
I like to use "noble" German hops for the base bittering of my hoppy APA and IPA's. Flavor and aroma are all American!
Big starters and wort oxygenation prevent stuck or slow fermentations, and help with a very clean tasting finished product.
