IPA and Strawberry Mead

Resin and Strawberry

I have put together a recipe that I think will clone the SixPoint Resin. To challenge myself with this recipe I will be making some changes to the brewing process. This time I will be milling my own grains and I plan to steep an extra ingredient into the IPA to hopefully bring out the flavor and aroma that signifies the beer.

The interesting part is that I plan to brew the IPA and then after clean up I will brew a Strawberry Mead. Since this will require a lot of prep work, I plan to start in the morning this Saturday (27 June, 2015) by getting everything in place and ready for both brew  sessions. Brewing twice in one day takes up the entire day but makes for enjoyable time when going through the process.

I plan to leave my notes on this site along with some pics. However, they will probably get posted the day after.
