Tried the IIPA version listed previously by stonecutter2. Not bad, but doesn't taste quite the way I like my IIPAs to taste. Because of the hopping schedule, the bitterness wasn't as rounded as is...

Finally got this one kegged. Only been about a month since I brewed it. Tastes great, but needs a little time to mature. Really easy to drink. Should be well liked by the friends and family. ...

Northern Brewers seems to include T58 as the dry yeast option on most of their Belgian kits, so I suspect this would work out just fine, but I'd be interested in opinions on this as well. I have a...

Brewed this up on Sunday. Smelled great going into the fermenter. Took less than 6 hours for fermentation to get going. Three days in and the yeast are still pushing foam out the blowoff tube. ...

Wow! That works out to about a quarter a bottle, if my math is correct. Can't beat that. I've never really done the math on it before. I always assumed it was costing a little less than buying...

Agreed. Hadn't thought of that. Even with a late addition, the amount you would have to add to get any appreciable flavor would probably over-bitter this beer. Just better off adding the zest. ...

If you are looking for a slight hint of lemon, you might try hopping with Sorachi Ace. It's supposed to have a lemon zest quality to it. I've never used it, but I'm planning on trying it in a...

Agree with Fly. Only difference is I usually pressurize, then purge to remove any air from the keg before pressurizing and letting it sit. Probably just paranoid...but I do it anyways.
