I am around many days during the day, few evenings. I have many mornings free, and can bring my
5 year old to help sort some day if we decide on that. I'd love not to make a lot of work for
Redman. I ...

I've got a yeast question as well:My LBS only sells WL strains, so I picked up a vial of 565

It really is a mild beer. My version wound up well-balanced and not too hoppy. Caramel is
