With the severe winter we have been having, they were slowed up in their brewing...which still
takes place outdoors...been too cold and windy. Original plans were to be up and running last

I find 1968 works well with most English type beers and it is one of my favorites. You may want

I have removed some buckets, pitched rubber tubing, pitched the spigots on my bottling bucket

If I have another high finishing gravity beer with 1968 in the future, I may also bottle it,
wait a week, test open a few and when carbonation is where I like it, I may try to pasteurize
it like many ...
