Louis Cyphre

What a great weekend!! I worked off my Metallica Hang Over brewing a batch of Evil.


Fifteen pounds of grain and five varietals of whole hops. Chinook and Magnum for bittering and Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial for aroma. I hopped the mash, I hopped the boil, I hopped the post boil chilling, and I will dry hop the secondary.

I doubled up on the yeast and created a mosh pit of a starter (love my new erlenmeyers from Research & Development Glass).

That shit got oxygenated!

And that was before pitching the yeasties. It erupted more gnarly Evil from the primary for the first day and a half.

Mathematically it's around 120 IBUs but that doesn't account for the mash hopping, the post boil hopping or the dry hopping. I know who I am.
