Well, I decided to put my Xmas gift card to use today and placed my order with AHS. (After saving and visiting and REvisiting the AHS site to COMPLETE my checkout) I picked up the DC Stout kit from them (rave reviews) plus a holiday ale they had on special. I also grabbed a pound of flaked oats (for the stout) plus a some raspberry flavoring (Think I might turn this into a nice mouthfeeling raspberry DC stout)
Its a mini mash kit so I get to steep some other grains with less extract.
Im half tempted to run up into the attic to see if I can find those old coolers now... I think we had like 2 or 3 of them at one time. (Never being used...)
The lure of the simplicity of all grain is becoming tempting... (Now that it is beginning to make sense)
