Since the first double-brew day was such a success, Michael and I decided to follow it up straight away with another! But this time, instead of brewing similar beers, we trekked off in separate directions.

My medium sized American heart was super excited to brew this DIPA recipe that Michael whipped up featuring Galaxy hops.
