Just wanted to update here - I brewed this back on Thanksgiving and just tapped it over the

I decided I am going to take a gallon and secondary it with bourbonized maple syrup, oak, cocoa

I just re-brewed this yesterday, woohoo! Efficiency sucked again, 65%, but I ended up with 6.25

Thought you'd be interested to hear some results - I entered this in a bjcp competition and got
a 33 and 35, not too bad but didnt place. It was brewed 8 months ago and I got knocked a little

I gave it 5 weeks on the primary cake, then put it in a keg at room temp for about 3 months
