This sounds fantastic, I believe I'll be trying this in about a month when a tub opens.

Recusit8m 10-26-2009 12:00 PM

Where ya getting the PacMan now? Are you ranching from a Deadguy?

Eascen 12-08-2009 07:55 PM

In the bottles, pre-taste was awesome, can't wait till the next few weeks are over!

-edit-

Headed to TN the 23rd and plan on popping one of these and a pumpkin open on arrival.

And, popped a bottle far too early, shared it with my three roomates, we all love it.

Dumb question. Do I add the oak chips to the secondary for the full 45 days or just 21?


Thanks :D

Has anyone brewed this who would care to comment on the characteristics

I made it for christmas. The beer is excellent! I couldnt find pacman so I used wyeast 1056 instead. I also used a heavy toast oak chip on it .I probably could of cut the oak back to 1oz but Inwanted a bold beer.Must follow all the ageing steps.

I brewed this beer using Maker's Mark. It is unbelievable. Unlike most winter and seasonal beers you don't have the annoying spice. This beer is so good that I may brew it a few more times before spring. This is being added to my yearly schedule.
