The Brew is Out There!  

For some February is all about chocolate, but for the hop obsessed, February is all about the sweet, sweet bitterness of Pliny the Younger. If you don't live in an area that gets the limited shipments of Younger or you just don't want to wait in line, we've got you covered with Craig Shapland's amazing "Old School Triple IPA" that he's refined over the years with new ingredients and techniques. Sit back, it's time to get bitter!

Old School Triple IPA

Great episode! Thanks so much Craig for sharing your recipe/process for brewing this! I’ve made a few batches of a Younger clone and actually won a BOS at a local homebrew competition. I can’t wait to use some of your suggestions to make an even better beer. Cheers!

How much?!

Just priced this up in the UK for a 5 gal batch.... £50!!


Now I understand why double and triple IPA's cost so much :D
