I love this stuff. So drinkable, and the perfect hop aroma in my opinion. Stacks up well
against some fan-favorite IPA's. I love the 15 pack cans - I go through them much faster than I

I would have to say Dogfish Head on this one. What I love most about them is that they take a
lot of chances. I am a big Ommegang fan, but they don't like to 'color outside the lines' too

This article seems to suggest that you should be precisely controlling the HLT temp and
constantly pumping the wort through in a HERMS system. That means that you are controlling the
wrong component w...
