Man after a week with my beer in the fridge I have to say Dam I think I made a killer beer. The color was just right, the taste was superb and the head held for a while. I know I never made the original API IPA recipe with the nugget hops. I do have to say with the Columbus hops in my mind it tasted great and was a great ending to my birthday day 7 740ml bottles later at 2 pint glasses each I am feeling great.
La Noche Oscura Cuadruplicar Fuerte (a remix of the Calavera Spiced Chile Stout)
1 Bewitched Amer
2 Pale LME
2 Smooth LME
2 Booster (new boosters...apparently 2 new = 1 old).
2 Ancho Chiles
Decided to go with Bewitched Amber instead of Brown. Got rid of the robust and upped to 2 pale, 2 smooth, and 1 booster (well I guess it is two now.) We cannot call this a Caudruplicar FUERTE without it being Mas Fuerte. Reworked the grain bill a bit going purely on guts and machismo. Got rid of the cacao because I forgot to order it. Decided on El Dorado hops because El Dorado is a spanish word.
Ingredients ordered. This will be the first brew in the queue after I bottle what I've got fermenting.
