Guys:Quick update. I veered off course with the beer I'm brewing this weekend. I lightened the
beer up to the mid 7's SRM and added a little Citra in the flavor to compliment the Amarillo (a

Redbone - no issues here. I just know that talking to the brewery, unless you are a beautiful
Russian spy who can bed the Head Brewer, is almost always a waste of time. I swear they do more
to throw y...

Sleepyemt - a friend told me about this info today. You are correct: down to Sweetwater's

on the aroma si...

Redbone if that is what they say, then you are absolutely right. I don't live in ATL. I live in

Thanks Sleepyemt. I have to look at the recipe again. If I bump my honey up to 1.50 lb. I get
1.087 OG. Also, why not use Chinook in there? It is known to have a grapefruit aroma. I'm
thinking if I go...

Ok guys I have the recipe I'm going to make in two weeks. I met with a Master Brewer and a Brew
