5-22-2010: were drinking whilst brewing and we wanted to make this a high gravity IPA with a ton of hops, so we threw in some LME I had in the cupboard as well as tossed in all the extra hops I had left from different beers I've made. The only thing is...there was...uh....sort of....a crap load of ants that had died eating the LME. We boiled the hell out of them and figured it'd be okay (see first point that we were drinking).
We'll see how it turns out :)

5-23-2010: Already fermenting
5-28-2010: I am continually blown away at this dry yeast; It's just a trooper, keeps plugging away. I'm gonna let this sit for a while as I have 13 drinkable gallons of beer right now and only 3 corny kegs.
6-13-2010: Kegged. FG 1.018ish, perfect. Tasted the sample, man! this is a hoppy beer. It'll stay under pressure for a while until a spot in the fridge opens up. No ant carcasses in sample :)
7-3-2010: OH MY. This stuff ain't mess'n around. Really hoppy and strong. Not quite carbed up yet, but I'm really happy with it.
7-9-2010: Dude. I just had two pints of the Creepy Crawler. Three words: Yummy, Hoppy, and Tipsy.
