    Didn't seem so special to me, So I cranked up "old Nellie" to see if I could beat it.

    Sam Adam's Millium and it's Utopia is barrel aged then racked into bottles for a target of 25

  • Posted in thread: You know you're a home brewer when? on 04-14-2012 at 09:12 PM

At one point, we had to lash down the Fermenter and flood the containment area around its base to prevent melt down or damage to the superstructure. My wife says the "Papers are in the mail". Thinking about brewing some Pepsi Cola or root beer this year.
