    Dog fish head 90 min IPA

    Not all American IPAs are truly the same style. Most of the IPAs we have been weened on are West Coast IPAs that are very much hop forward, bitter and dry. So when you describe a west coast ipa as being balanced... well they really aren't . East Coast IPAs, such as DFH's offering are more of a...

    I got mine on order so I'm pretty excited to get it and give it a go. My biggest concern is the sparging method. Once you lift the malt basket out do you let it completely drain before adding your sparge water or do you keep the grains soaked for the whole process? Have you had any...
