    Just finished my first ever batch. Stone IPA clone... 1.069 OG and (according to an IBU calculator I found on the web) 80.6 IBUs. Seems high, but we shall see. Pitched my yeast too early (almost 80 degrees) but got it down below 70 quickly.

    I'm out of town away from my rig until 1/1/13 so no brewing until then.

    I've got a Witbier with yeast from East Coast Yeast, a Belgian Style Quad, a Wheat Wine, a Robust Porter with tonka beans sweet orange peel and tea roses, and 13.13.13 ( inspired by the Stone series) lined up.

    Now the dry hopping is up to you. I'm going 3 oz of whole hops and 2oz pellets. It tasted delicious once it cooled so we'll see. Unfortunately I had to get a similar yeast so hopefully it's not way off cause I am impatient and had everything ready to go and the homebrew shops around me weren't getting the White labs til next week. Best of luck to you.
