LOL, nice. I figure that I'll give them to neighbors, coworkers, etc.

I'm enjoying tasting mine and noticing how the taste changes. I had one after one week, and it was...meh. Beer-like, but lots of alcohol flavor. Had one last Tuesday (2nd week), and it tasted better, but the flavor kind of evaporated once it made it to the back of my mouth. Just had another one tonight, and it's got flavor all the way through. Very curious to see how it's going to change after another week.

I noticed a lot of alcohol warmth (as well as a pretty watery character) when I sampled this one before racking to secondary. I know now that the warmth was probably due to me letting the termerature get up too high (I kept it at ambient 65-68 degrees... likely got me some fusels for my trouble).

The warmth was less noticable at bottling time (and the mouthfeel was better). While I expect that there will still be some after three weeks in bottles, I'm hoping that the beer will continue to mellow out.

My first brew just hit two weeks in the bottle, and a taste test was weird. Tasted a lot like cheap booze. Oh well. Just gotta give it more time I guess.

Meanwhile, I have a stout and a pale ale in fermenters, and brewing a hefe tomorrow. 8-)

My pipeline is so thin...

That's okay. Things will look better once the Leffe Blonde clone is fermenting. After that, an Irish red or a Chimay Blue clone...

Yeah I can't wait that long. I usually have one a week till its ready. It's really kinda cool to see the progression of the beer. I stop when I get to the 2 case mark though. A man has to have some kind of line he won't cross Oh, and short pours are the bee's knees..........LMAO.

Patience is def a virtue. But brewing all big beers won't lend much to a more immediat pipeline. I like brewing pale ales,IPA's,English bitters,etc. Good beers for when you want a few without waiting a few months for them to mature.

I agree @ big beers, which is why the Chimay clone probably won't come quite yet, as much as I love the original beer. Leffe Blonde clone next, then an Irish red... ought to be able to survive a big beer int he pipeline at that point.

I just finished a bottle of the Chimay grande reserve (blue label) & added the large bottle to my collection. I found it at Giant Eagle for $10.99. Now I wish I'd have saved the yeast. Completely forgot.
