Just bottled today. Sat in primary for five weeks. Hope to have some ready for Super Bowl.

Well, I was able to drink mine last night -- it is seriously the best beer I have ever made.

Brewed the AG version tonight. OG Sample tasted amazing. Was my first AG batch - all new equipment to boot. Quite happy with 78.2% brew house efficiency. Can't wait until it's ready!

Anybody try messing with the amounts of extract? I can only buy in 3 lb bags, so just wondering if this would work well with 3# amber and 3# wheat. Also, both of my LHBS are subpar to say the least. Any other places to get lactose if they don't have it?

dandw12786: Dude, most online suppliers can hook you up with everything, in the amounts you need, for less $ (including shipping). Do you need a web address?

Sorry, that sounds a little mean. I'm just trying to say that I've been very pleased with the online options.

I haven't... typically i see ingredients maybe a bit cheaper than my LHBS, but shipping negates that pretty quickly. Plus I'd like to brew this weekend, so anything shipped won't be here.

Has anyone let this get a little age one it? Mine is almost gone and is starting to get REALLY REALLY good (I think it is 3 months). I have a bottle socked away in the corner of my closet that I am letting run its course and am debating pulling a couple from the fridge to keep it company.

IMHO, I think you can get away with the 3 and 3 just fine as the majority of the flavor comes from the specialty grains. There are a couple Partial Mash versions as well at around Post #235. Experiment! As far as the lactose, I can't help you out-like the other poster said, online would be a way to go. Sure shipping costs around $8.00 but you will get all of the ingredients you want in the quantities you want. One other option is just get 6 lbs of the Amber and keep the additional amber and wheat for the next recipe or for making starters.

I had one at 10 months. I thought it aged well. It cut down on the sharpness of the bitterness and smoothed out. I have one left in the fridge and will probably try it soon... its about 13 months old at this point.

Others have indicated a slight fall off after 6 months. It depends largely on how good you are at keeping O2 away from it of course. If you really want to age it I'd scale up to an OG of around 1.080 or higher and send me a sample in about a year so I can verify it's awesomeness!!!

This info was worth the time I have spent reading this thread. The second pot at the higher temp as a sparge is a simple substitute for those who don't have AG equipment. Thanks for that. This was in response to BigB's post a while back.
