Was yours the one that had the bottles wrapped in magazines?

This sounds like so much fun! And those beers sound so good. Where can I find those recipes?

You aren't the first to say a teaspoon or so was lost. That is really weird. You'd think the bottle would burst or it wouldn't. Really sorry. More sorry I don't have a reason so that I do better next time.

yes. One was brewed with gingerbread extract. One was brewed with spices. It says on the label but I forget which had which color off the top of my head.

agree... the red top is excellent... even has a ginger bite that hits the back if your throat at the end... and while mine had busted open (why I still don't know) it was perfectly carb'd ... drinking it now and loving it.

great project and dibs on the ginger IPA next year.

Great Juniper Bock. I'm drinking it alongside the Juniper bock from last year. Funny. I drink this years and the flavor is so distinctive, I remember it from last year. However, last years has changed so much that it takes like a completely different beer. Dgez, I think you win the clarity award so far. Georgeous color!

Edit: Both pics are of Dgez's beer.

Oh and DGez, this might be sacrilegious, but your beer may be the best I had today.

All of those that shipped to me so far have been in tact, no popped bottles etc... I have already shipped a few boxes back and will hopefully get a few more out after this weekend, staying good on my word to ship to those that shipped to me.

Im still not happy with the carb level in my beer, Ill do better next year by trying a few different things. I may actually brew it in Feb/March and have it age in the bottles until Christmas comes around again. So again, I apologize for having to spread my shipments out and lack of carbonation.
