This beer has exploded on me every time I have made it so watch carefully!
Any questions just ask me!!
How bitter is that going to be? I have never used Magnums.
I like dark beer, but I also don't like very bitter beer. One of the best dark, chewy beers I have tried is Irish Death, if you know that one... but I think it is available in the Northwest only.
