  • Old Chicago restaurant in Southgate, MI. They were my first experience with brews from all over the world and locally. As I continued through the tour, I got more curious and talked about getting into the homebrew scene. I received a MR. Beer kit for Christmas in 2010. It turned out horrible. But, I ended up buying a "real" kit from Austin Homebrew and a recipe from my LHBS. It turned out better tasting but I screwed up the fermentation. I just continue to want to improve and I've kept it up....and I love it. I realized how far I'd come when I was able to supply a friend of mine a variety 6 pack with all different brews. A little moment of pride.

    I have moved on to letting it sit for a full 4 weeks myself now to getting completely dry. I'll
    be honest, I am considering just doing that consistently in the future without any additional
    stuff othe...

    I think you'll just have to wait until the temp gets below 72 or so... anything but a saison
    yeast would be gross at high temps. You could possibly go extreme by halting fermentation at
    your desired F...

    Thanks, YeastMode! Summed up my reasoning spot on.I was able to use the Sumatra but not Kona.
    CraigKing, if you look up the profiles of the two coffees the original recipe calls for, I
    think you ought...

    It's an excellent question! My experience has been, with this beer, that the oak is PERFECT in
    this beer. However, I have made a RIS where I used the same amount (4oz) but soaked the chips
    for only 1 ...

    I don't think so. However, I would offer that the flavor profile will definitely change over
    time but probably in a good way.
