So, I went to a local Homebrew store and upgraded to the two bucket system and have been happily making my own for 15 years or more. I try to make anything and everything I can to expand my palate and experience as a homebrewer.

    That grain bill looks very close to an English brown ale that I made 3 weeks ago. Add 8 more
