They are going through some sort of hopback on the way into the bottle too. They probably whirlpool/steep for 30 minutes too at flameout and FWH.

Are they the kegs I see attached to the fermenters on their Facebook page, or is that something else?

there are two kegs used as blow off vessels during fermentation. they actually add the contents of the first fermenter to the bright tank.

To other people who have used Conan, how cloudy was your beer?
I sorta had a failure.. my beer is a cloudy, murky mess. I will say this, for a 3 gallon batch, i used 2.65oz Citra as the dryhop (almost 4.5 scaled up to 5gal) with no hop bag, so this may be the reason for the mess i got... but how clear have your beers been?

One of my friends from work is trying to convince me to make a run up to Vermont just to pick up a bunch of Heady. He's never had it. Does anyone know how much they'll allow you to purchase in one shot from the brewery? I'm trying to decide if this is worth it. Last time I was there, it was part of a trip throughout the whole state.

Yeah, I heard 2 case limit. $72 a case, I think.

I'm heading up there next weekend into Monday to grab some.

2 case limit per person at the brewery. Retailers have a two 4-pack limit per person. Just dont be shocked when a case is nearly 80 bucks.
