Tasting Update - The beer came out good but definitely no where near the commercial version. I did mess up a few things so I am curious to see when Chefchris taps his what he thought of it. I forgot the gypsum and fermented too high so I got that alcohol hotness too it but it has since subsided so thats good. You can taste the spanish cedar slightly but I'm curious if a) I should have aged it longer than 2 weeks or b) maybe the spanish cedar was old as it didn't have that nice cigar box smell to it. It was kind of mellow. For some reason the beer doesn't taste as citrusy as I remember when I tried the commercial version but maybe that was also me messing up the fermentation temp.
