My chicken soup is never the same as the last batch, but always a good soup, sometimes great. My beers are similar. I make what I like, and experiment from batch to batch. I do keep detailed notes on everything, and when I make an exceptional batch I make sure that that recipe stays in my permanent, "Do This Again" file. The experimentation is a large part of the fun for me.
So Slymaster, kudos to you. Hope it turns out great and earns a place in your "Do this again" file!
I figured that if I did something that weird after only a few batches, it would provoke some reactions. I'm the type of guy who likes his classics, but also like to experiment a lot in what I do.
If it works, it's going to be great. If it don't, well, it's 70 bucks down the drain...
