I want to try that someday.

Have you tried that yet Denny?

Yep, several times, Ron.  All that Munich malt really lets ya go crazy with the hops!

denny what's with the sudden increase of interest in Munich malt as opposed to _____?  I'm just curious, seems like there's a lot of talk about one malt type (in Belgians, IPA's, etc).  will there be an upcoming article about the use of Munich malt?

I, too, am a hophead.  Ever had Apline Brewery's Nelson IPA?  Very big on citrus/grapefruit flavor, hops pretty much punch your palate.  I went after that with a Nelson and Citra based IPA with lots of dry-hopping with Amarillo and Nelson.  Added a good amount of Rye to the grain bed and that seems to have added to the overall hop experience.  The Rye has clouded the brew to an extent and Alpine is known for their clear IPAs, so I missed the mark there, but it sure has been a pleasant adventure down IPA lane - a keeper for me for sure.  Simcoe and Amarillo batch up next...  going after Alpine's Duet.
