Dirktastic - Brewing for Nationals


Dirktastic, my version of Tasty APA, is a beer that is all about the hops.  Since I want it to be at its peak when it's judged, I have to brew it next weekend.  I checked Austin Homebrew Supply and they were missing some hops, so I thought I would try BrewMastersWarehouse.com.

I created an account and entered the recipe below into the BrewBuilder™, rounding up the partial ounces of grains.  Once I save it, all I had to do is click "Buy Recipe" and all of the ingredients were put in my cart.  I also added a recipe for a barleywine, just to build up my recipe book.  I was going to enter Shadow Warrior, but I couldn't find flaked grains.

My package arrived today, and everything was inside (always a good sign).  I had such high hops for the hops, though.  I wanted Brew Masters Warehouse to group my hops by addition time.  Instead they came in individual ounce packages.  Sigh.

Oh well, it doesn't matter!  I will be brewing again, and that's the important thing!
