Good place, good beer and good food. I second Weeping Radish, although it is aways back up on
the mainland (about half hour drive from Nags Head), so maybe just buy some of their beer at
one of the lo...
Posted in thread: How many of you oxygenate dry yeast? on 08-05-2014 at 12:44 AM
Although supposedly not necessary, I hit for 30 sec. with O2. Figure it can't hurt. When I
