    Drchris, are you talking about October keeping ales?I buy boxes of J.W. Lees harvest every year

    McCoy,Hey, well said. After changing my brew process a bit, and experimenting with a few brews
    in both my Hop Spider and free-floating, I have found that a not-too-tightly packed hop spider
    does get a...
