I was aware it was a trilogy. I loved the books and the LOR series did a really good job of keeping true to them. The characters even looked like what I imagined they would as I read.

Cool. I will buy it tomorrow. It will be a good weekend to be snowed in with that, my new Bonamassa blu ray, and a basement full of beer.

I just received my blu ray copy of Joe Bonamassa "An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House" today. That is 6 days before it is supposed to be released.

I FWH all of my red ales, amber ales, brown ales, porters and stouts. But when I tried it with my cirst IPA it still came out too bitter. I really like hop bursting my IPAs. I get good hop flavor without the bite. At least that is the way my citra IPA turned out.

I hate the bitter bite of most IPAs. I did a cascade pale ale with this same grain bill and hop schedule. It is delicious but not quite as much hop flavor as I had hoped.

Maybe I should back off an ounce or two?

This is the idea I am kicking around for my columbus single hopped IPA. Is this too strong on the hops?

I get a lot more dough balls and air if I add water to the grain. So I add grain to the water. It is less work for me.

I like single hopping to learn what a hop tastes like. I just don't want to make something undrinkable, from what you say it sounds like I am safe from that. Thankyou.

I got an unbelievable deal on a pound of columbus hops through yakima valley hops a while back. I have never brewed with them so I don't know what they taste like. Would an IPA single hopped with these be a bad thing?
