It was a Brewers Best American Light, I added some baked apples with brown sugar and cinnamon in the hopes that I could give the beer a more seasonally appropriate flavor.

    I am going to dry hop my IPA in the keg, but I am wondering if I should do this under pressure
    or just purge the o2 and leave it at a very low pressure. If you have ever done this before

    If you want to cheap out, just mash a little 2 row instead of using DME. Way cheaper, and some
    say the yeast will respond better.Hmmm. I may try this. It would be cheaper and it would give
    me a small ...

    Awesome thanks for the info. I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough yeast in suspension
    during the transfer to the keg but it sounds like that isn't a problem. One more quick question
    about hef...

    you achieve that in a keg?
