    I've made this beer a dozen times..... One of my favorite versions is using one-hop (blend)
    Falconer's Flight. Just adjust you IBU's accordingly.I have little control of fermentation

    Not sure what you mean "natural yeast techniques"? Yeast is in the air, in your beard, on fruit
    and even in beer. If you want to collect some get a petri plate with agar and take the cover
