Double Cascade APA

This a reprise of my first extract batch, the All Cascade APA, but with double the amount of cascade hops, 200g instead of 100g. It also features double dry hopping, 40g at ferment temp and another 40g at cold crash temp. I got that idea from reading about an Epic Pale Ale clone but I haven’t gone with quite as much hops as the Epic. Still it’s about double the hops that I typically add to a batch so it should be pretty intense.
