    Nyrkki, I'm in the same boat as you. Honestly I think it'll be just fine without the "lagering"
    stage. Maybe not come out exactly like a Westy 12 but still an excellent beer.Jamil's BDSA from
    Brewing ...

    Used too much sparge water and didn't boil off enough so ended up with closer to 6 gallons than
    5 and OG is 1.084. Still to style but not the same as Westy 12. I'm also following Jamil's
    fermentation ...

    It could completely mellow out but it could take many months. Just don't rush it and give it
    time. Good luck!

    I'd ignore the batch for a month and try it then to see if it mellows; if not, wait another
    month. For SURE I wouldn't cut it with anything! Give it time - it'll mellow eventually

    The ESB I just tapped is definitely in the mix. Very tasty and refreshing

    One of my favorite beers, Honker's Ale, uses them exclusively. Love them.

    Brewing a clone of a local beer: 483 Pale Ale from Great River. It's really more of an Amber
    but it's good and I'm having fun trying to see how close I can get.
