    That's pretty awesome--congrats, you guys. I guess with 144 entries it had to be some pretty
    stellar beer.I would also love to see a feedback sheet, but I guess that's also what the
    Piedmont is for.*k...

    Oh man, here we go. I'm waiting on tenterhooks to see how my imperial stout did! I entered it
    as an imperial after all, because after carbonation the hops came out a little better, and it's
    well over ...

    My RIS came out more like a Foreign Extra, so I'm going to enter it in that. As you say, matt,

    I am a huge fan of Safbrew T-58. Looking to do an old-school table-strength version on my stove
    (BIAB) this summer when I can let the ambient temperature work for me.

    might be what you're looking for! Been using it for a year now, and it's been a champ.

    Hi Elvestinkle!Thanks but I'm probably missing something here. Defiant's Abominable Snow Beer
    is a Belgian White/white beer and Caribou Slobber is a brown ale... :confused:Yeah, I'm dumb
    and misread y...

    I have heard huge things about Caribou Slobber.

    Two things: 1. Notty's fantastic. You made a pretty good choice.2. I've had good success just
    sprinkling it onto the wort. But those instructions are not terribly complicated; they're just
    a useful wa...

    It's possible you'll run out--I brewed up 6 batches that served 90 at a wedding and only came
