What about an experiment that mixes beers though? I like your idea, but that is a lot more work as opposed to less work: just mixing them together into a keg...dry-hopping with an ounce each of Simcoe, Cascade and Amarillo? that sounds good right?
McMennamins Brewery in Oregon makes a "Rubinator" that is part Ruby ale and part Terminator stout. People ask for it by name.
The Red Ale I want to mix is even made with the same Yeast (S-05) as the Citra IPA. Don't know if this helps...I would assume it does.
Has anyone ever done this? is this a horrible idea? Anyone see any links on this before or heard about this? I have until next weekend before I have to make a decision.
