  • I watched beerfest and googled homemade beer. It's all a blur from there! I'm an AG brewer. I'm neither a hophead nor a malt crazy... I'm both. If it's a well made brew I'll probably enjoy it. Not a big drinker but love good bier and food. As such I take as much pleasure in a 3.5% bier as I do a 10.5%.rnrnCurrently brewing 1.66 gallon batched due to space restrictions.

    all be shipped to me for proper disposal, I'm just that nice of a guy. Will inbox you my
    address shortly....

    You've got solid advice. There is much to consider here. 1 - I'd suggest pitching more yeast
    than you're used to to keep the growth phase to a minimum which is where much yeast flavor
    comes from, Belg...

    Forgot to add this link to the recipe with further notes. Particularly important is that I got
