Always thought this to be a boring beer until I stood in line for Yankees @ Mariners in 95F sun for awhile. I had to fork over the credit card for $8.75 for a Mirror Pond but in all honesty at that moment I would have rated it the best beer I ever drank.

I am going to brew this at some point later this year.


*** rant - pro sports prices are insane at this point. I can't imagine how the average guy/gal can afford to go to more than one game a year. It's nuts! My family ate like money grows on trees, I had one Beer!

Hey samc. Let me know how yours turns out. I am planning on doing this here once the fermenting weather improves for me.

P.S. I still haven't put that giant conical to use.

Mine turned out real nice. It was a hit at my homebrew club meeting.

They use 'City' Water. They filter the hell out of it though.

I used S-04, fermented this at 65F but didn't do the temp. raise. I also used Great Western NW pale ale malt, omitted the gypsum and it turned out very good. Close enough for me, the pale ale malt really is the key, gives it great body. This will be going on my regular rotation of brews. Next time I'll try adding the gypsum, but maybe only half as much. After about six weeks grain to glass this turned out to be a smooth, balanced pale ale.

This will be my next brew. I was at a hockey game the other night and had to pay $7 for a cup of Mirror Pond. I had never tried it before but I was very impressed! I agree on the sports prices though. They're freakin ridiculous. But, I'm an idiot and bought three $7 beers.

In St. Louis you pay the same amount for bud light...I think you got a great price.
