Congratulations! I guess I jumped into your LWPA recipe at the right time then. That's the exact version I made. I'll see what my local brew pub owner/brewer friend thinks of it as well at my party. It's going to be on tap that night. I'll give you the kudos on the recipe.

We drank some tonight, actually. I had a 2 liter that I totally meant to bring to the Raleigh festival for the NC GRABASS boys but I forgot it in my sleep deprived haze.

What amazes me about everyone's individual tastes is that Sam said it was nice balance, and he liked it dry like that. I thought it was too dry, where I prefer a sweeter IPA/APA.

I do think this batch turned out decent but I'll still tweak it.

And thanks. Really, I got lucky that this one advanced. I don't know how it did.

I haven't tasted a drop of your beer yet, Dude.

I'm trying to set up a time when I can sit down with BOSTON and share the beers with him so that you get double feedback. We're just both busy on the next few weekends so finding a time to do it isn't very easy. I've had to stop myself from opening the SPA a couple of times.

On a related note, the review of LPR will kind of happen by surprise. I had it on a shelf in my fridge with your other beers, but SWMBO re-arranged things and now the LPR is lost amongst 3 of my own porters. I can't tell which flippy contains which beer.

I'll have to review that one whenever I hit the lottery. The good news is that my chances of winning keep getting better the more porter I drink.

Gotcha....

I'm betting the honey pale ale is going to be flat. I tried a bottle last night during the brew sessions and it was tasting pretty flat to me. I haven't figured out how to dial in that beer gun exactly yet.

Can you just drop the pressure in the keg when you bottle with the beer gun? I did this when I bottled some of the Doppelbock with the picknic tap, for the WBF in Raleigh, and was surprised how little carbonation was lost.

Well the pressure is already pretty low when it is being filled, like around 6-7 psi is where I fill it. I'm actually going to post a question in the beer gun thread to see how everyone else is doing it.

I tried another one when I got home from work and it is definitely pretty flat. That really bums me out. I wanted you guys to get a good sample of it.

TRIPLE reviews coming tonight for the collection of Dudebrau that I have.

BOSTON is coming over to share/sample, and SWMBO is going to add her own comments, too.

The sampling starts tonight @ about 9pm.

Make sure you've got some turpentine on had to wash the taste out of your mouth.

j/k, of course.
