Just a thought

Apart from that yeast snafu, I keep rambling about how good my beer is. For the sake of balancing things out, tomorrow, or perhaps the next day, I'll do a vertical tasting of my IPA's, which I brewed way too early on and which have substantial weaknesses. So stay tuned for an entry on IPA's, from the ho-hum to the downright wayward, with an explanation of their stylistic flaws and technical solutions to be applied to later IPA's (one is in the works in the not-too-distant future), probably as part of a single-yeast series: American-style pale ale, IPA, and barley wine.
