Yeast & Fermentation
Ferment at 68 for 14-21 Days.
Keg and crash cool for 30 days (not necessary but that's what i did)
Recommendations for next time. small amount of cara-pils to help with head retention. It loses head pretty quick.
looks like a tasty recipe and a good clear beer; not sure i want to know the story behind the name, though :D
There really isnt a story other than I own a Lab and he likes to lick people.
here is his puppy picture. He is 3 now but i dont have any good photos on photobucket
I may have to brew this in honor of my goofy black lab. http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o...0920091829.jpg
