Love their brews. I haven't attempted any clones, but I've certainly taken a note from their
beer and an using a ton of oats in some of my recipes. Up to 20 percent. I'm not one for
Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 01-10-2016 at 02:07 AM
Maybe similar, but not the real thing. Too flocculant. Haven't brewed yet, but the starter
yeast cleared within a day after finishing. The real stuff i harvested from a can took a while
to clear when ...

My next heady will be w a new yeast. It's shipped in a can and called Barbarian. Claims to have

gallon turns out a...

Wow. I must have gotten lucky. My dog is only about 35 lbs and has eaten a bunch of fresh hops
and leaves off the plants in my yard over the last 3 years. When he has an upset stomach, he'll
