I am going ahead with this formula and see how it turns out with jrfehon's hop schedule. I'll
be using a 1.5L started of the forbidden fruit. Going to LHBS for the oat malt. Might have to
play with th...

I am planning on making a go of this on Monday. Is this the version that is looking most

WLP530 can take quite a while to get the last handful of points. I wouldn't be too concerned at

Pulled a gravity sample just now, and it reads 1.032 at 65 degrees, so temperature adjusted to

Can you explain the power output to me? I always just turn it to 99% or "On". Would the

I am going to try to make this clone to be put in a 10 gallon barrel from corsair Distillery I

Hex - in regards to the orange peel you used, was it fresh peel, or the dried stuff you can buy
in home brew shops? Or was it zest? Also, you used Wyeast forbidden fruit (3463) as well? Did
