I've been on a mission to perfect my home recipes for IPA, APA, and Blonde. Today I'm taking a break and brewing just for fun. Its inspired by the fact that I didn't have enough MO to do a house APA, and I had some bags of hops about empty and needing to be used.

5.5# MO
5.5# 2 Row
3# Vienna
Mash 6 gal at 156°
Steeping 8oz chocolate whole in the sparge  just for color. That 4 gallons is about the color of coffee and smells like very weak mocha.

2oz centennial FWH
2oz cascade 15 min
1.5 oz Mr Hood at flameout and 15 min stand before chilling

Wy1056 at 67°

A fun brew with no style in mind

Looks tasty!  Saturday or Sunday I start on a quest to see if I can make my Rye IPA into a decent Rye APA.  Trying to get it from 7.3% ABV down to more like 5.2%.

Mmmm. I like my flavor bombs to pack a punch, but I usually love the toned down versions

Partially to see if it can be done.  Mostly because if I don't start drinking lower alcohol beers, I'll have to stop drinking.
