hope this helps
YEAH............ about that. the beer was perfectly fine the whole time.
just kegged this one last night. a little early im sure but the hydro sample tasted sooo great, i just couldnt resist. besides ill be brewing this beer for my wedding again soon, and ill let it age right up to the week before I leave for SLO. then its a quick clarifying treatment (if still needed at that point) and im off.
Thank you again everyone,
