    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 ...

    Just home from a business trip to Chicago and stopped by Binny's Beverage Depot for the first
    time to stock up on beers I never get to try. Started off with a St Bernarus Pater 6 in a
    goblet that was ...

    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

    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

    Just tapped my first couple of pints of my ESB from Brewing Classic Styles...very nice! Will be
    making this again, for sure.

    Just tried - and admit, dumped - the Shafley Pumpkin Ale I just bought. It had awesome reviews
    on Beer Advocate but I just don't get it. WAY too much spice and it also tastes artificial. I
    have 5 left...
