Yeah, this stuff is great. I've used it in two summer beers. One was a 1.028 American Lite Ale. It finished at 1.008, I racked to a secondary on top of a tsp of AE and it dropped it to 1.000.

Just tried another winter warmer from last July....yummo! The hotness is gone, and seems to have more body than I remembered when I tried it last fall. Still has a nice spicy flavor. I'm pretty happy with it so far and glad I threw in the AE when I did.

Sounds good, should be even better this winter.

Assuming you are referring to my beer, really not bad at all! It actually keeps getting better with age. I need to try another...thanks for reminding me! Must have been a lot of ginger or something that needed to mellow out. I wish it had a bit more head retention, though. Other than that, I don't the the AE affected the flavor much, just helped plow through some residual sugars.

I see you used 1/2 tsp, but what was the volume of beer you added it to? I've got 11 gallons of ipa that has been stuck at 1.030 for two months.

I've got 6 gallons of a black IPA that's been stuck at 1.035, og was 1.096. I just ordered some AE and plan to add some when it gets here tomorrow. Has any one dry hopped after adding AE?

I just added some to a triple that has been stuck at 1.020 for weeks. It started at 1.085 so I thought it was done. It still tasted too sweet so I added some champagne yeast. No effect, so I added the AE last night. I have bubbles in the airlock this morning so hopefully it's working.
