You may find that it won't be fully carbed if you bottle 4/28, and drink it 5/18. Depends on
your gravity, but higher abv beers tend to take longer to carbonate. I would try to give it at
least 4 week...

I like the amount of hops, I don't think you can add too much from 5 min to flameout. We are

Even with 10% off, those prices are high (compare with Farmhouse Brewing Supply)... Selection

So it turns out that the gose style has experienced a small resurgence in popularity. Sam Adams
makes Verloren, which is limited release, but you may be able to find some. Also, a gose took

Maybe the link is wrong, but I didn't see any acidulated malt in that recipe. The grain bill is

brewing this recipe this weekend I would switch to that one. I will be brewing that soon!Yeah a

Admittedly I'm not up at 1.124 (or 1.132!) but these recipes all use more than 2 lbs of black
