Anyone brewed it? Anyone had it? I have the byo clone recipe and I'm very intrigued by it but
I'm wondering how dry it is, how bitter (astringent?) It is, how hoppy? Mash high? Sweet
yeast?Thanks in a...

Got any links? I'd love to review the hard numbers. The drummer of a German band saying it
tastes just like the Octoberfest from back home isn't very convincing evidence. I don't see

The point of oxidation is that it can make seriously bad beer. Traditional brewing methods

any LoDO characte...

the front page article on how to brew with chocolate.. sound like it might be roasted to the

The first tests i'd like to see are:1. Normal brewing vs. normal brewing with campden, to see
the effects of just campden on brew process.2. LODO vs. Normal brewing, without using any

I like that idea. What did you use to plug the tubing?I use 3/8" thick walled tubing. A 1/2"
