Bottled IBA today!
« on: September 11, 2010, 02:38:07 PM »
Most are calling it Black IPA or whatever. I think IBA works too. As in India Black Ale instead of India Pale Ale. Whatever. It tastes great. I called mine Fat Man IBA. It was brewed on August 9th. Anyone else know why that date equates to the "Fat Man"?!?

I brewed one last weekend.  OG was 1.071, damn thing attenuated down to 1.010.  8%abv!  That's stronger than I wanted and it's a good thing I felt like I overhopped it.  But I thought I'd "try" this new fad that everyone seems to be on.

My OG was 1072. FG 1014. Right on target for me.

No. Although that is an uncanny coincidence. I just looked that up- it was Nagasaki and that bomb was called Fat Man.
There is another, less historically significant, anniversary of someone's death on August 9th. Roll away the dew....
