    My opinion is that it really doesn't matter where you age. If you bulk age (carboy) then you
    will probably have better consistency from bottle to bottle. However, after 3 months you may
    need to re-pit...

    I am no legal expert, but my guess is that taking homebrew over state lines is almost always
    problematic given different states have different laws regarding alcohol sale/distribution.you
    may be in a ...

    Also, did you use wyeast 3787? I had made the NB patersbier and then made this on the yeast
    cake.I did check and my OG was similar to yours, but I assumed it was measurement error. The FG
    was 1.012.Af...

    If I get a chance I will look at my brewlog. For extract recipes (I do partial boil with top
    off) I don't worry about the OG all that much. If you top off at the end then you sample to
    measure gravity...

    I did the NB tripel recipe last year. After 6 weeks in primary I did bottle and cellared for 3
    months. I think it turned out pretty well. As others have said, you probably can't go wrong
    whichever way...

    I fermented the extract versions of bavarian hefeweizen and patersbier last summer. Ambient
    temps around 70 F in my basement. Both turned out wonderful.

    I have had that happen a few times. Twice, when using the butterfly capper I must put a little
    torque on it and snap the neck then. It makes me think that you can put a stress in the glass
    depending o...

    I can't say I'm an expert or have a reference, but here are my thoughts. - hop aromas,
    phenolics, and esters fade with time So, for beers that highlight these characteristics are
    better young (some ip...
