Batch 0005 - Alpha King Clone

I ordered a few things from Grape and Granary Wednesday afternoon, including a couple ingredient kits.

Batch 0005 is an Alpha King IPA clone which features 6 different hop additions including my first attempt at dryhopping.

Batch 0006 will be a dryhopped amber ale that I'll dump onto the yeast cake (Wyeast 1056) of the IPA. I had great luck with doing this with the steam beer yeast cake so I figured I'd try it again.

Planning to brew the IPA today, already smacked the yeast pack and its swelling nicely.
