After loaning my kegerator to my parents months ago, I finally have it back at my house and full of my latest batch of homebrew, the Hop Head Double IPA from Midwest Supplies.

Brew day for this batch was back on December 8 and everything went as expected for the most part. As I normally do, I started off with as much water in my kettle as I could leaving just enough space to avoid a boil-over. Unfortunately there was so much malt extract to add that I actually had to split the wort into another pot.

The beer sat in the primary fermenter until December 15, at which time it was rackedĀ into a secondary and 2 ounces of cascade leaf hops were added for a dry hop finish.

The beer was in secondary until I kegged it on December 26. Now that the beer is fully carbonated I must admit that this has to be my best homebrew yet. Of course my love for this style of beer doesn’t hurt.

Yum!
