Merwin's has Abrasive in stock now.

http://www.shopmerwins.com/893354001096.html

Just received mine today. Tastes so good it makes me want to learn to brew just so I can make nothing but this. That's kinda how I found this thread....

Merwin has a good reputation? Have only read about France44 and been waiting on them to put abrasive up forever. With a min. order of 40 bucks at Merwin, that's coming to 75 to ship to me for two 4 packs of Abrasive and a 4 pack of coffee bender. 6 bucks a beer, not too bad really. But I can make 15 gallons of this for 50 bucks.

Yeah Merwin's is most definitely on the up and up. A bit more low key than France44 which is a very good thing. WET came and want so fast on 44 that most people assumed it never went up which could be what happened with Abrasive.

I've done my version twice now and love it. I've never had the real thing though. I am getting a shipment of Abrasive Friday and will taste and see if my recipe was right or not and brew it again this weekend or next.

Awesome, gonna try and find some Citra out here and give it a whirl

No changes to the original setup? Mash at 148 etc?

Not that I know of at this time, my Abrasive will come Friday. I had a bunch of BMC drinkers kick my first keg in less than a day, it's tasty. I think it came out a few points of SRM light based off of another poster's comments, but it's hard to tell in photos. I'd probably try it like it is.

Two weeks then dryhop for 10 days, then bottle. If you're not brewing till the weekend, I'll try to remember and post on here Friday night if there was anything off in my recipe that I remember after tasting the real thing. The one thing I found original with this beer was the taste of the oats, so I want to see if it's noticeable in the real thing. Were you able to get them? The Naked Oats?
