My brother in law sought out my advice in setting up a kegerator to serve out of 2 taps, 1

I have yet to use Chinook so I cannot attest to its flavor, but I can tell you that Simcoe and

Something that I have seen only in brown ales for me, is that they have taken much longer than
other styles to come into their own. Most styles, 3-4 weeks from brew day and they are very
