Recipe: Falconer's Flight Extra IPA

Source: Ingredient Kit - Brewers Best Kit

This is my first home brewing experience. It is a limited edition kit from Brewers Best. Decided to kick my new hobby and possible future career off with an IPA for the cold winter and eventually cool spring of NJ.

This kit uses cascade hops as well as the falconers flight special blend hops.

first and secondary fermentation with a dry hop of the FF hops.

nice aroma. bubbles stopped on 1/24. decided to move it into secondary for a long dry hop.

Notes From Feb. 12, 2013 (Bottling/Kegging)

Gravity Reading: 1.014

Final gravity was 1.014 making this brew a 7% ABV. Tasted it prior to bottling and conditioning and it was right where it should be. Very hoppy and spicy. Looking forward to drinking this in a few weeks.
