Date Started : 09/14/1997 Date Bottled : / / Starting Gravity : 1.070 Ending Gravity : 1.014 Alcohol content : 7.2% Hop IBUs : 46.20 This receipe was my interpretation of Old Wicked Ale, which is an all grain receipe found in Cat's Meow. This is a strong brew...and came out very successful. It's highly hopped but this combines nicely with the high content of malts. The wyeast #1728 gives the brew a nice smokey flavor.This was my first attempt at a partial mash..and it came out very well. So..try it. but be careful...KYA Ale will kick your ass if your not careful! :-)
