Bknifefight, the total cost for this recipe with supplies (minus what I had) and some equipment (jugs for freezing and dry ice) was $80. So the resulting price per bottle ended up being $4 per 7oz bottle!

I had one of these last night to see how it was coming along. The alcohol burn is starting to mellow some. It is so smooth! The fruitiness from the hops are really coming out. Now I just need to give this the time that it needs to really become great. I need to put it in the back of some closet and just forget about it for like 5-7 years. Cheers!

Nice. Did you drink it chilled or at room temp?

I put it in the frig for about 10-15 minutes before I drank it. It was cool but not cold. I sipped it in a whiskey glass.

My bottles got an honorable mention in the BYO label contest. Also I tasted another one of these after a few months and it has smoothed out and is incredible.
