  • Posted in thread: Adding Multiple Hops At The Same Time on 02-10-2014 at 05:06 PM

    So we're having out first kid in May and I want to brew a beer to celebrate. Now the question

    oh wow, that long? Going to put 3L into 3 1L bottles and the 12oz the rest so I can test over
    time. Guessing my 1 month might not be enough. Guess I'll try the first 12 ozer for Christmas
    :)

    Thinking I might go 1 week then let them mellow for a bit - 4 weeks? at least for the first

    I just got a 5L new (not charred or previously used for liquor) barrel. I'm planning on

    barrel? I'm guessin...
