Posted in thread: Full vs partial boil on 05-10-2011 at 04:25 PM
Partial water boil can sometimes lead to a darker color and more concentrated flavor. It's
usually not a huge difference, but a difference. I have gone to adding only 1/3 of my extract
to the full wat...

A very professional, fifties, new wave, holga, old school feel. There is a bit of a book cover

Nice hop label. For version one, make some of the black "splats" a series of lighter colors.
That should give it depth and complexity. I do really like the small restrained font. Do
