The Hopfather: Part II

This is the real Hopfather recipe from Sam Calagione’s Extreme Brewing (see our failed attempt here). We went back to trusty old extract brewing for this batch and it was much easier and much less stressful.

The Hop (Hot) Father by dpdearing

We had these amazing labels that were made incorrectly, thinking the name of the beer was “Hot Father” instead of “Hopfather.” At first taste, the beer is fantastic and hoppy but needs a little more time to carbonate.
