Heretic Evil Twin Clone 2

This recipe requires hop extract, and the only place I've been able to find it is Northern Brewer. Two HopShot vials give you 100 IBUs, so you can focus on the aroma hops. So I went to Northern Brewer to order the ingredients. Turns out, if I add grains, hops and yeast to the order, I can only have it shipped second day UPS for $76! But, if I only get the hop shot, I can get $7.99 flat rate shipping.

So I checked the hop selection at Austin Homebrew Supply, but they didn't have Apollo hops. Thank goodness for Beer, Beer and More Beer! They had Apollo hops, and even though the total was few dollars higher, the shipping is free!

I had good luck the last time I brewed this, but I didn't adjust the water. I can't wait to see how this will turn out!
