Haha. I remember clearly. Too much coffee. The wife told me to go with 6 oz cause that's what Charlie P suggested. Charlie P was wrong. I'd go 2 oz for 24 hours.

Yeah, that's exactly why I dropped them. I figured if I want more body I can add malto dextrin to the keg. Good to know about the Brett. I may use that trick in the future.
