Cracked open my first bottle last night. It doesn't taste anything like I have ever tasted before. The first bottle through me off, but after that, they were all great.

Don't let the_bird give you any more crap about the 3%'ers. This beer is great when it's 102F outside.

Thanks for the recipe.

My permutation of this beer went over extremely well at a party recently. I didn't include the orange peel, which I think was a mistake; it really needed another element to flesh out the flavor, and I think the orange would be nice and complementary to the grains of paradise I used. I actually picked up some sweet orange peel (not the bitter) for a re-brew that needs to happen pretty soon.

How were the GOP and how much did you use?

Very good. Just about two grams, if they measured right at the LHBS. I love their flavor, kind of a fruity, peppery, spicy goodness. I'm thinking they'll be wonderful with the orange peel.

I may switch out the black pepper corns for the gop for my next run. I thought the orange peel made this beer though.

I'm considering brewing this recipe but I don't want to use the corriander or pepper. Without the "zesty", is this recipe solid enough to hold its own?

Get your hands on some GoP, grind them up, and take a whiff; it's a wonderful aroma. It adds a really nice element, and use them in moderation, so that they give a bit of kick without being dominant. I got nothing but glowing feedback, even without the orange peel (and yeah, I'm really regretting deciding not to use that).

Yeah I'm definitely interested in using GoP, in some capacity. Maybe I'll roll with orange and GoP on this one...

I've brewed it without the spices. I simply called in Sterling Rye. It was a nice crisp beer with that bit of rye malt.

I made this with the GoP instead of the peppercorn....one of my favorite beers I've made so far....unfortunately I made this for the father in law for fathers day so I only got a couple of beers off of it (and of course the two 750 ml i saved for myself.) Definite remake...probably this weekend......and this time a 10 gallon batch.
