Brewday #71 – New Engerland IPA

I haven’t brewed in almost 1.5 year, been working and too lazy, and other stuff to. I wanted to make a real Juicy New England IPA for a long time, and I have so much hops left makes it a good idea.

I got an idea to use the grain basket of the grandfather as a hop spider. I lowered it down and then turned of the boiling, then immediately added 100gr Chinook. I let it sit for 20 minutes. I added 100gr of Calypso. The wort was down to 87C so I put the termostat to 83C so it wouldn’t get to cold during the next 20 minutes.

The grain basket as a hop spider worked great! Look at the pictures all the hops was filtered out.

I’m a genius ;-).
