Racked to the secondary on Friday. Gravity was a bit lower than expected at 1.010. The sample tasted a bit boozy but the character is definitely there under it. Hoping that a bit of aging will...

As sptaylor stated over-pitching or under-pitching will change the ester profile and will help "balance" the beer. I tend to over-pitch my pales and under-pitch my darks and I usually get what I am...

As your OG was a bit low, I would cut back on the oak a bit, unless you really like the oaky, vanilla flavor that oak brings.

I haven't used powder, but I have used chunks and chips when aging...

It will change the flavor a bit. MO will make it more "bready" and straight 2-row will probably result in a bit less "malty" characteristic.

As you can see from above, I didn't have any Pilsner...

Just brewed this for the first time.

I buy my Base grains (2-Row and Maris Otter) in bulk so I substituted 2.5 lbs of each for 5 lbs of Pilsner malt.

Every order I have placed with them, I have been able to pick up the next morning before lunch.

Couldn't you just make one with a screw on lid (or any lid) that had a D-loop on it that could be dropped in and then you could just use a coat hanger to fish it out.

Bee Rye-it RyePA

I just brewed this one yesterday. It turned out pretty big and I am hoping that the honey malt and honey additions will help balance out the hops and alcohol.

I will update this as it goes along....

Rear Tyre has kind-of the same bready, biscuit nose with the very faint hop smell that Fat Tire has. If I had to say, I would say that Rear Tyre has even more of a malty nose than the original.
