Shadow Warrior 3
It was a muggy, cloudy day. Although I had planned to start at 8 am, the sky looked too foreboding, so I waited until 9 am.
I've been playing with the recipe for a few years now. The first time, I used 10 pounds of light DME to bump this bad boy up. The second time, I used seven pounds. This time, after a successful all-grain Brown Shugga, I thought I would try to get more grain in the mash tun.
I brewed Dirk's Elixir as a starter, and added a vial of WLP 001 just for good luck.
It was a long day. I finally finished brewing, well, cleaning, about 4 pm. I was tired and sticky and, even though I was not going to have beer tonight (I'm on a diet), I succumbed to some Lagunitas IPA. Next brew day? Dirktastic!
