Dude, I know I've been acclimated for the past 20 yrs, but don't forget I grew up in the north & have seen -58F on the thermometer not counting wind chill. Having said that, I don't think I have a winter jacket anymore.

I'll probably crack open some of this for tomorrow's Oregon/Auburn game and see how it's progressing....

Wow. This stuff is amazingly smooth for only 3 months in the bottle. It didn't carb up at all; I knew the yeasties had probably given there all.

This stuff will be amazing in a year....

Did you use a medium toast American oak spiral in this...and did you let it sit for 6 weeks? I know that's what you were thinking but wondered if it actually soaked for that long.
