    I just drank this beer for the first time a few days ago and I too was very impressed. A few
    opinions about your recipe:First, the hop flavor and bitterness is really well balanced with
    the esters/phe...

    It seems most people think its sanitation. I don't like that idea because I think I'm doing all
    I can, including changing siphon tubes and fermentation bucket. This brings me to two
    questions:1. If it...

    I've had this issue pretty consistently, more times than not. So I don't do a gravity reading
    and I don't do secondary fermentation, both out of fear of contamination. I bought a new

    This is the situation. I've now been through this 4 or 5 times. I brew a batch and all goes

    before a week or so in bottles so am jealous of you. Do you carb them low being malty
    beers?Just depends on t...

    but is now fully carbed and drinkable on 11/21. Did I misunderstand something here?It was at FG

    Mmmmm....Galena. Need to order some more soon. I've been on a UK and Noble kick lately, so it's
    about time to find my way back to the bigger boys. I just cracked one of my winter warmers the
    other nig...

    Okay, ignore everything else I've posted so far. The beer is now bottled and fully carbed and
    tastes fantastic. Tastes much closer to Deschutes Jubelale than it does to a CDA....beer is a
    mysterious t...

    I just wanted to add something to this thread.....I tried my first Cascadian Dark Ale today,
    Deschutes Brewery's Hop In The Dark.....I was shocked....it tastes VERY similar to what I
    brewed.....I'm th...
