I also put aside a growler with 1/4 of a jalapeno pepper "dry hopping", the small taste I've had of it is good but needs a few more weeks to age.

For an all grain or all extract version I convert 2 row to extract at 1 lbs grain to 0.75 lbs liquid extract.

Comments / suggestions welcome!

Added 8/14 - This was inspired by Oaked Arrogant Bastard. While it's not a clone, it definitely has the big flavor spirit that Stone Brewery goes for.

Couldn't resist...



The beer is a bit lighter than the pic.
