|The second 2 oz. hop application, top, and|
the 1 oz. aroma batch.
I've adapted the recipe from a Black IPA kit I got (I have one batch that was completed faithfully to the kit recipe just going into bottles - with the exception that I dry hopped it with some of Bill's last year crop). In this case, I used a 5-to-1 substitution ratio of the fresh hops to the dry hops the recipe called for - I used Dan's ratios to calculate the rate for that, since he told me that drying them reduces them to around 20 percent.
|The aroma hops went in at the end of the boil.|
The beer will be in primary for another week, then I will transfer it to secondary for two weeks. I'll also let it bottle condition for two weeks before drinking it.
