@spelger Thanks for the link. We don't have any LHBS's near by or anywhere in the state that I'm aware of. So BrewChatter will go in my list of online vendors.

MS was a little late modifying laws and regulations to allow micro breweries to exist in the state. But we do now have some great local micro breweries that I drink product from regularly and have even gotten into brewing my own during COVID after wanting to since 16 or 17 yo. LHBS's I guess are just a little too hard to start up due to the states previous attitudes that probably still has micro breweries and home brewers in low numbers.

I'm only a 1 gallon brewer so all grain to partial all grain works for me. I could divide that up though if I can't find a similar 1 gallon kit.

As for the IPA, I like all kinds from hoppy to ridiculously hoppy. I'll have to look at that too.

My best brew so far has been a BrewDog Elvis Juice clone from Brooklyn Brew Shop. I let it sit in the primary for almost six week to clean up. I made a few minor changes to the recipe too.

It didn't disappoint, it came out very clean without fining or cold crashing. Just amazingly clear and clean and sparkling in the glass. Even in the brown glass bottle I could tell it was special before I opened the first one.

Oh, and just to stay on the subject of bicycles for the BF forum we are in.... don't ride bicycles and drink, especially the BrewDog Elvis Juice, mine worked out to 7.2 ABV.
