Getting back into some brewing and keen for an English IPA however only have some 2013 English hops on hand which de rate to quite low AA% using the beersmith age calculator. 250g hops in the boil will be interesting. If anyone has some thoughts/comments I'm keen to hear them. Going to get a starter going tomorrow so will be a few days before it goes down. Trying to use up some old ingredients I have lying around.

thanks guys!

was considering something imperial or funked so they'd last for years and drink one on his bday every year blah blah, but i've seen it done so much before, and they're often not really beers i enjoy so it didn't make sense. i wanted it to be accessible by my many non-craft beer drinking friends and family but also for me who doesn't mind a good bland, crisp, refreshing lager now and then :)

rather than sampling a beer each year on his birthday, this beer will be re-brewed every time he reaches a milestone in his life. for example, when he walks, or rides a bike; and when he's older....whatever a milestone is for him.

the beer i decided on was very simple (to start with at least), but each re-brew i'll twist it and tweak it, experiment, and make adjustments and i figure by his 18th birthday and f#$k knows how many re-brews later celebrating all his milestones, it'll be a bloody ripper haha. i'm sure some experiments of it will involve the word imperial :D

Cheers Coodgee, the recipe is one of my better extract recipes adapted to all grain. I figure if it tastes rubbish then I know it was my brewing and not the recipe! Should be good though.

Curious how this goes! You brewed that malt bill before?
Hi Mardoo,

If you were asking me then the answer is 'yes, I've brewed with this malt bill before'. It's strictly 95.5% American Ale and 4.5% toffee, I was just too lazy to type out accurate percentages.

The first time (and only other time) I brewed with it was a 50:50 Galaxy/Mosaic mix also to 40IBU. It had an awesome aroma but I found the bitterness a bit harsh, I don't know whether that was the Galaxy at 60 minutes or not.
When SWMBO tasted it she commented that it was malty and I didn't find that at all, so those reviews may not help you much.

Below is a pic of the original version...it come out quite pale which the Gladfield Toffee is meant to help with. That wasn't something I was necessarily aiming for, I was just trying out a couple of new malts (and trying to get a free t-shirt as part of a Barleyman mid-week madness promo!).

I'm hoping this one will have a better balance with the Magnum for bittering at 60minutes and more of the Galaxy moved to the cube.
Anyway, pitched yeast today so I'll report back in a month or so.
