First Brew IPA

Source: Mark
Recipe added: 03/29/01

I just started brewing not that long ago, so I know my recipe is a really simple extract brew. However of the several recipes I have completed, the ones one I've tried, and other homebrews that I have had, this was quite pleasing. A light brownish red in color, medium-to full body, a fair head, a sweet malty aroma, and a nice round flavor. If they sold this one in stores I'd buy the company out of business. Not too complicated, Not too weak, and best of all it's ready to drink in about 3 weeks. If you decide to try it, and I hope you do I think you'll definately enjoy the simplicity, and the reward.
