This was my second batch of homebrew and really turned out well. It had a very
hoppy flavor with just the right bitterness for my taste. The cracked grains
led to a nice copper color. Some drinkers compared it to Washington DC's Old
For my next batch, I plan to reserve some of the hops and add them during the
last 5 minutes of the boil or dry hopping. Combine with cold water to make 5
gallons, cool and pitch yeast at 75 degrees. Ferment until completion and
bottle with corn sugar.
