Haven't made any adjustments just yet. At this point it screams out grape soda. Has a purple
grape flavor going on. Like a freezey pop. Any idea what causes this? Trying to get a clue as
to how to han...

I have a ton of this stuff. I could dump it back into a fermenter. I don't really want to

Brewed on 1/18. Efficiency was poor. Ended up at 1.060 post boil. Had some issues draining the

Looks good. Not a fan of Simcoe in general and I don't think it would be beneficial in this

Brewed this rendition about a six weeks ago and it's now properly aged and ready. C120/SpecB
was replaced with all Simpson's C150 for the total amount of 1.5#. I figured this would be
