First Posting after several visits to the site in the last 6 months; seems like big changes have been underway here.
I am getting back to brewing after a 25+ year hiatus. I used to use extracts and made some interesting tasting batches in my time...(after the first case or so I would generally get used to the taste and could finish the batch). Not sure if this was due to the age of the extracts or my technique, but if I had to bet, it would likely be the latter. I'm geared up now with the basic BIAB equipment and have made a test batch of 2.5 gal with so-so results. Rather than using a tried-and-true recipe, I took a less than complete one and then scaled it down - not the best move on my part. For my 2nd, I plan to stick to a known recipe to be sure I've got the basics down. So if anyone can point me to a bomb-proof IPA recipe, hopefully I'll be on by way to beer-bliss.
