    :rockin:He's been back for a coupe of months now, but his wife said he's been trying new and
    different beers. I figure while this isn't a Kentucky summer beer, it'll age great and he'll
    have it for th...

    Well this batch is going to a friend, a Vet that just got back from overseas, and his birthday
    is at the end of July. I know it won't be 100% by then, but I'll tell him to throw a bunch in
    the back of...

    I brewed a batch of double IPA 2 weeks ago and split up the batch last night. I bottled half

    tried to fi...

    but maybe we can work something out. Grizzly, that's what I figured. I'll measure out the sugar

    Wow it's been a long time since I've posted on this site, glad to see that it's only grown in
    the time that I've been away. Life (read: work) has kept me from brewing for almost a year now,
    but I'm in...
