Big ol' bump here, but I'm serving this now, and I thought I'd give some notes. This is Winter
Solstice by the way, if you can't tell by the frozen fingertips I'm typing this with.So the
rumor the dis...

Alright I've got an update on my brew... racked to secondary to rack on slurry, it stayed 68F
or within a tolerance of .5F for five days. It worked quick, and hasn't really given a damn

Sounds good. Mine turned out really well. I named it Not A Belgian. It was not mild by any
means and was a nice mix between an American IPA and a Belgian ale.Hmm... well I'll just have
to see how mine...

says 92% g...

Brewed, fermented, dry hopped, cold crashed, kegged and served all within two weeks. No notes

I do want to stick to a late hop addition in the beer, not sure if Centennial is the best call,

a lower ...

I wanted to make an Irish Red 100% my own and keep is SIMPLE. Just looking for some thoughts
and feedback, I want to make sure my specialty malts aren't the wrong approach.Also, just how

Brewed this tonight, like everyone I had skepticism about the hop amounts, but I know Lagu IPA
