    Racked to the secondary on Friday. Gravity was a bit lower than expected at 1.010. The sample
    tasted a bit boozy but the character is definitely there under it. Hoping that a bit of aging
    will mellow ...

    Brewed this up today.Hit 1.066 OG (1.063 estimated). I also added a full ounce of Fuggles for 5
    minutes as I had 1.5 ounces left and I didn't have any recipes calling for Fuggles anywhere in
    the futur...

    what I am lo...

    As your OG was a bit low, I would cut back on the oak a bit, unless you really like the oaky,
    vanilla flavor that oak brings.I haven't used powder, but I have used chunks and chips when
    aging differen...

    will probably result in ...

    Just brewed this for the first time.I buy my Base grains (2-Row and Maris Otter) in bulk so I
