Oops forgot to report back... I brewed this last December and recently bottled half the batch,
overall I was satisfied with my first go-round. It's hugely tart but also gives off some nice
aroma and c...

Good point on growing them separate just to be safe. My initial plan was to let the JP ferment
the batch by itself anyway, until the graverhopke piqued my curiosity. Maybe I'll start that
one up separ...

Yeah I guess we'll see how it turns out, I'm not a big coriander fan myself but used .5oz

I've brewed this one which is a simple but solid recipe, was a big hit. If you're looking for a
redder hue, maybe replace one of the Munichs with Carared. I believe this one was like a 26
SRM. Mashed ...
