  • 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.

    This stuff ages well, IMO. I actually have 1 left from my second batch done in July 2012 (my
    version with mango and some minor tweaks to rum type, vanilla bean qty). I actually have now 3

    gotcha. FWIW, I've let some IPAs age too. They are WAY different than their original tastes,

    4 months in the bottle?!? It held out that long without going bad?? I'll have to remember that

    I used the Belle saison yeast last summer due to the Temps in my basement. It worked out well,
