    This is a fab recipe! I miss my RTA and don't wanna pay the $8 for the shipped beer to the
    East. You will not be disappointed. Do the blind test when you've let it condition for three
    weeks and then e...

    I just did the mash of this recipe this weekend and the yeast are working away as I write this;
    however, because of the crazy cold up here, I've wrapped the bucket in multiple layers of wool
    blankets ...

    I gave the beer a full five months to condition and it was TREMENDOUS by the time I started
    drinking it in earnest. :tank: I've taken to putting aside canned pumpkin each year for the
    following year's...

    for this recipe. I started this over the weekend and it smells perfect! :ban: I used to drive
    up and down the coast from grad school and I'd stop there to get a brew. Lord I LOVE Hopland.
    Thanks for t...

    I regularly stir the mash and keep the temp near 152 by adding a little boiling water, poured
    across a stainless steel spoon, as needed to keep it there. I LOVE the idea of keeping some DME

    :ban: and the wait was worth it! I brewed this back in late May b/c I knew it took FOREVER for
    those spices to blend appropriately. By October this is going to be a SMASHING beer. Here's the
    extract r...

    Hey there, I had a crazy brew session making this recipe: ended up using my 5 gallon MLT to
    try to make it and let's just say, the 10 gallon is on the way! My first problem is that my
    final gravity i...
