Turned out pretty damn well with some cool flavors, and the SWMBO is a huge fan as well as most of the ladies I know, though I feel that there are still some things I'd like to change about it - not sure exactly what yet, though.

Anyway, brew it if you're into it and let me know. I'd be really interested to hear some good criticism. :D

As a side note - ages VERY well. Particularly after about 5 or 6 weeks in bottle at 40 degrees or so.

Tastes absolutely awesome. We saved a few bottles from the hordes and my roommate is amazed at the difference a few weeks has made and wants me to make more immediately. It has become, in his words, "the best **** that ever came out of that plastic thing in the closet."

I know this post has been dormant for awhile but I am going to brew this up tomorrow. I was wondering how many gals. you used to steep your grains? I like what I see with the recipe, I was also thinking about adding a little honey to it. Would be interested in your opinion, thank you
