Notes:

Inspired by Flying Dog’s Pale Ale, obviously–but bigger IPA Land.

At flameout I put in 0 minute hops and covered the pot halfways. I let this sit for 10 minutes with the burner off. I tried moving the pot closer to the laundry room, but dont, it will spit all over when it’s this hot still.

After I cooled to 68 degrees (took 25 minutes to cool to when constantly moving around the chiller), did a 25 minute whirlpool.

Roused fermenter every 3 days. Checked OG after 2 weeks and it was 1.007

Cold crashed to 36 degrees (differencial +3) after two weeks.
