I decided to go with the WLP670. Decided to throw the dregs from a bottle of Jolly Pumpkin Oro
de Calabaza in the starter. I also have a bottle of Jester King Mad Meg that I think I'll save
for brew d...

Thanks for the input. I think I'll keep it simple and go with the WLP670. After reading a lot

I'm not planning on building a collar. My eventual plan is to build a lid with a coffin box on

I recently moved cross country and had to part with my extensive bottle collection. Now that
we're settled in our new place, I'd like to start brewing again. Instead of becoming a raging
