Posted in thread: Longer fermentation or time in bottles for aging on 08-13-2013 at 10:40 PM

Holy carp! One sip has enough flavor to fill a six pack of regular beer. I saw that it was
13%ABV so I wa...
Posted in thread: When do you decide to add more yeast at bottling? on 01-23-2011 at 05:38 AM

Posted in thread: Is it strange for a LHBS to store their hops unrefrigerated? on 12-29-2010 at 04:33 AM
