  • I'm Mitch, and I'm a beer-aholic! I love trying and sampling new beer all the time. Brewing is in my blood, second generation here. I have a lovely wife, 3 beautiful little girls, a house, a great job, a dog and I love hunting, fishing, and playing guitar. That's about it, I'm a pretty simple guy.

    That is fairly high, but give your yeast some time to clean up the whole job.
