Another Bitches Brew Crew experiment... (PLEASE READ ALL!)
1) Follow the recipe attached and change ONLY THE HOPS!
2) Post what kind of hops you used...THE DAY YOU BREW.
3) Bring enough brew for all to taste and to give 1 bottle to every person that brewed (so we can all bring a variety home!).
4) Bring an item or 2 prepped to go in a salad(YUM! Salad bar!). I will provide lettuces, various dressings and a couple of BIG pizzas, veg and also non-veg.
5) If you really want to brew for this event, but can't make the date, let me know. I can get it from you, and we will save an assortment of all the beers so you can taste test them at your convenience!
Ready to learn how to differentiate hops! This should be good!
Oh, and of course, if I have forgotten anything let me know!

    Here's the recipe that all of us will use....
    Single Hop Beer Recipe!
    Grain Bill
    74% Two-row malt (domestic)
    13% Maris Otter malt (English)
    10% 20 L Crystal malt (domestic)
    3% acidulated malt (German)
    Mashing
    Single-infusion mash at 154 F
    Hops
    90 minutes (5 to 10 IBU)
    30 minutes (20 IBU)
    0 minutes (10 IBU)
    Dry hop, 1 week at 68 F, variable
    Boiling: 90 minutes
    yeast: California Ale
    Fermentation: 68F
    Packaging: Target 2.5 volumes CO2
    Original Gravity: 1.052 - 1.056
    Final Gravity: 1.010 - 1.012
    IBU: 30-40
    ABV: 5.5% - 5.8%
    Instructions:
    Use the same malt bill each time. Keep the dry hop, final hop addition and middle hop addition the same quantity each time. The only variable between each single-hop batch is the hop variety itself, and the quantity of the first hop addition, which will be based on your calculations to hit the target IBUs. So, a lower alpha acid hop will have a higher 90-minute hop addition, and vice versa for a higher alpha hop.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
