And on a total side note- I'm a cook, and the chef that I work under is looking to make a
unique product to sell in a local store. My idea was to take this home brew, which has good
notes of chocolate...

Yeah buddy! I prefer Bushmills to Jameson also, just went for the traditional car bomb. Midwest
supplies sells a sort of Baileys concentrate, which I'm also considering using on my 2nd

That's cool. I would still urge you to up to ante on the Jameson's while you still can. With 2

I did a secondary with mine, and added the entire contents(the beans and their seeds and

Couple weeks ago I brewed a black IPA from extract. While steeping the grains I left the

Thanks for the info. Already started my boil, so everybody is in the pool but my last two hop
