I didn't look at the date, but I presume it's pretty fresh. I'll see if I can rescue it from
the trash. It just came from AHS a couple days ago and with their turnover I would hope much of
what they h...

I just brewed an AHS IPA this morning. It included the alcohol boost and the OG was 1.062. This
is the highest gravity beer I've done so far and I was wondering if it would be advisable to

Thanks all. I'll keep an eye on it and see if the yeast at the bottom increases. As of this

I have a saison kit from AHS that arrived about a week ago. Came with White Labs AHS yeast
