Rumpled Finch IPA Recipe (all grain)

Finch_Ducklamp.png

This is an all grain IPA that I made recently.  It has Magnum hops for bittering, Mosaic for Aroma and dry-hopped with Equinox.  I brewed this for the first time in March.  Hops combination was great.  Planning on brewing this again in the next couple of weeks to make sure that I can replicate it.

Two weeks primary fermentation.  Dry-Hop with Equinox in the secondary for 1 to 2 weeks, then bottle.  

Also notable is that I tend to bottle beers because it makes it easier to give beer away.  Could probably keg this, but I have yet to try that.
