February 2016 Winning Recipe

Winning Recipe:

The grain bill for the session IPA I entered was inspired by this blog post by the mad fermentationist and I used a hop combo that I often use for IPA's (recipe below).  My efficiency was just below 70% so the OG came out at exactly 1.03.  3 week total fermentation time, with dry hops added four days before bottle conditioning.
