Quick update on this brew. I racked off the cherries on Saturday and bottled (god, how I hate
bottling) the batch. I had about 4 oz left and gave it a try. It's pretty darn good! I would
imagine age w...

I have a 14cuft craigslist chest freezer that's been problematic from day one, and getting

I brewed 10 gallons of Arrogant Bastard in early June. The batch fermented in my 13-gallon
