    So how did this one turn out? I mean with some time under its belt?There's only a couple
    bottles of this left (which I'll probably drink in the next month or so, since I'm about to do
    a cross-country ...

    Just a quick update. It's been about a year and 4 months since I bottled this batch. It has an

    The beer turned out good (especially after a few months), but it's not anywhere close to the
    taste of Baltika #6. Next time I'll try the licorice, but I haven't been able to brew anything
    for the past...

    the Superbowl would be a lot less fun if BMC didn't put those great commercials on. I have
    nothing particular against them, I just prefer other products.Really? I thought the BMC
    commercials this year...

    ...Doesn't cost much for beer/alcohol to have the desired effect, whether that effect is
    tipsiness (BMC swillers) or pure enjoyment (us "purists")...Ugh, how pretentious. :rolleyes:
