This is my second batch ;-) waiting for the first one to finish bottle conditioning before I throw up the recipe, just to be sure. From wort taste tests to testing right before bottling (I always sip on my gravity readings), this brew has a lot of potential.

Had my first taste today, and to describe it in a word... Delicious.

It might even be the best beer I've brewed so far. Recipe coming soon :-)

YES! Please do a starter if the yeast has been sitting for more than say 1 - 2 weeks...you need to show viability...
