Default Has anyone tried Sam Calagione's "Crandaddy"?

I found one thread re stuck fermentation in General Techniques, but it's kind of an orphan; no final results. The op was advised to start fermentation with barley then add honey once it gets going. That sounds like good advice.

I bought the ingredients for it last night. My plan is to leave it bottled until Thanksgiving. Has anyone made this? What can you tell me about how it turned out? It sounds pretty damn good. Any chance you could part with a bottle?

Thanks, Lee

Wow, shocked nobody has replied in over 5 years. I myself have been considering making this beer, anyone brewed it? If so, what'd you think?

I did it. It was bad...very very bad....i mean drinkable but unless you LOVE LOVE LOVE cranberry's avoid this one. I thought it would be great as a christmas beer. It was not. That was two ish years ago, i'm now trying to sour it out and rescue it. After almost two years of souring it's almost ok. Avoid this one....
