This does not sound like an ocular migraine. It sounds more like a scintillating scotoma.
Either way, if it happens more than just occasionally, you should talk to your doctor.Glad you
clarified. I lo...

stands, time to shut off all the lights & go lay myself down.They always come at inconvenient

Wow! That's a lot of blowoff. Do you use a better bottle? Did you give it any time before cold
crashing?I used a 6.5 gallon glass carboy. I didn't actually cold-crash it. My basement is ~64

How much liquid are we talking about?Your beer is probably between 8 and 9% Abv and has a

1.009 seems pretty high for this beer. What temp did you mash at? I would turn it up to 90+

turned off t...

I brewed the cottage house saison recipe with a scaled back OG to 1.055 instead of 1.062 by

with an aquar...
