I had a ball. I don't tend to go for rock stars in music, literature, movies or beer, so my expectations weren't wrapped up in "scoring" my Hunahpu's. I attend every year and rarely buy my allotment....

If you feel it's worth doing, you might just run the first ounce or two from the autosiphon to waste. After that, the wort or beer will have "purged" the autosiphon.

"Crush" as a verb is a term we use synonymously with "mill" to describe what we do when we crush or mill the grain kernels in preparation for mashing or steeping. When I said "crush" them, I meant...

Just a point of info: Duvel isn't a Trappist brewer. And, yes, DuvelMoortgat does indeed own a bunch of labels, including Ommegang.
