I dry hop with them in my red ales. They have an incredible aroma.

Fuggles or EKG?

I love fuggles but haven't brewed with them in a long time. Though I understand Denny- I have some sort of issue with Perle hops.

I think it will be good.  I like fuggles.  Despite all those hops I don't think it'll be a hop bomb, with that grain bill it will be malty and somewhat hoppy, yet delicious :D

Batch sparging is so wonderfully easy. 83% every time on a double batch sparge.

What do you get with only one sparge?  I get 83-85% with one.
I don't know how you do it. I get around 74% with my mill set at .035".

Denny's the king of all batch sparging...that's how.  ;)

He uses hippie power during the mash man.  :D :P :)

What have I done?  I've never made a Tett/Fuggle IPA before!  Any predictions?  ???

The first couple times I batch sparged, I was getting around 68% efficiency. I was also using really small hosing to drain my mash tun - it was taking ~15min! I changed out my hosing to 1/2", drain in 3 min and am now getting ~83% efficiency. Not sure why this worked but I've never looked back.

Fuggles beer sounds awesome.

Pices maybe?
