  • I started brewing when I was 20 as a way to 'legally' acquire alcohol after a run in with the law. What started as a way to drink beer without all the hassle underage has turned into a passion 8 years in the making. I am in the middle of building my first Keezer and transitioning into kegging. I typically brew 10 gallon batches of extract w/ specialty grains usually making two 5 gallon batches with different yeast strains.
  • My perfect IPA. Aiming for about 80 IBU's with 6 % ABV.
    Would like to attempt a lager over the summer for the first time.
  • None.
  • 10 gallons of hefewiezen.

    category 23A Specia...

    Looks like you have a pretty good recipe. Since you are sorbating and kegging you'll be able to
