I keg mostly, but bottle some of my stronger non-session beers or brews like porters and stouts. While it's not a super fun task, the feeling when finished of seeing cases of beer...

I measure often, almost every time, but have forgot OG from time to time. I almost always measure the FG though, especially if it's a bottled batch. My only issues with FG have been with IIPA's.

Similar to other comments... I've found a balance. About 2 a night, usually less than a pint each. I'll mix an IPA or sometimes an IIPA with something less potent. Swim a 1-1.5 miles each night...

I've been getting into IPA like this over the last year. Looks like a good grain bill that will allow more hops expression. One suggestion, although I'm far from an expert, would be to move the 35...
