I was wondering the same thing this weekend. I agree - it has such a complex flavor profile. Am
I wrong or does it have some acid malt or souring going on in there?

Made my tea yesterday and bottled...man, it smelled good. I ended up drinking half a pint that
wouldn't fill a bottle and loved it. No one spice dominated the others, all were subtle nuances

Good to know. I thought 80 was ridiculous and man, would I love to get that old fezziwigg
recipe. That is the best bottle in the winter mixed pack IMO. Alright then, I guess this is my
next recipe. Th...

Good to know chatters. I see you and shadows both used carafa but I didn't see it listed on the

So. I brewed the partial mash recipe and added a 1/2 lb. of 6-row to try to get more diastatic
power. I ended with an OG of 1.064. That was 13 days ago. Hydro sample today tasted great -
very bitter b...

Thanks. How do you feel about the Carafa II?

I'm not an AG brewer yet so I made a PM of the Special B, chocolate, crystal, and wheat last
night. I held the mash for 45 minutes starting at 150 and varied between that and 160. Added
6lbs DME and u...

How is this coming shadows? I used to live in Beantown and had this at the brewery before they
