Hop Bomb

I should call this one my "dregs IPA", as the partial mash is made up of a bunch of small portions of different malts I had sitting around.  For example, I'd get a pound of Munich for a recipe and only use 10 oz, or I'd have some other malt sitting around.  It turns out that when I combined the small portions, I had a pound of malt, so I just added 2 oz of CaraPils to that and now I have a partial mash ready to go!  Admittedly, it's a bit more malt than I usually use, but this time, I'm going to hit the hop stand with a pretty massive amount of hops (for the batch size).  And to do that, I decided to use up the rest of the LemonDrop hops I had from the EverLong IPS I brewed a bit ago (which is still very good, by the way).
