really its just an AIPA using Wy3787. The yeast lends it a really nice belgian character on the back end imo.

120L esky mash tun with a Beer Belly false bottom, 2x 40L Birko Urn's as dedicated HLT's, 120L Aluminium pot with Beer Belly hop stopper as a kettle. I no chill so also have lots of cubes floating about.

Beer dosnt last that long at my bar as i have a few thirsty friends but its not like i brew 85L every weekend either so its always nice having 5 cubes just sitting there that i can pitch yeast to anytime. I prob only brew a big batch once a month but i also do BIAB in my urns for small experimental batch's like a 10% Belgian Triple.
