Angel Over My Shoulder IPA – BIAB

I had a brewing buddy stop by today. It had been a while . He stops in every once in a while when I need his strength. Today, he helped me brew up an IPA. Thanks brother, I’ve missed you. 17 years tonight was when our world turned upside down. You’ve been gone for as long as we had time with you.

This is the first time I am trying to adjust my water before I brew. I’ve brewed malty beers and they taste fine but the bitter beers have a flat taste to them. I found out that my bare water needed a little bit of help. So using a spreadsheet, I found what I needed to add. Chalk (2 gm), Gypsum (1gm), Calcium Chloride (2gm), and Epsom Salts (3 gm) will do the trick.

As you can see, we have a lot of snow still.

It wasn’t all that cold.

But it did get dark quick.

Hey there little brother.
