Thanks!

I am just glad you brewed the recipe, completely agree that this smelled delicious making it. Have very high hopes that this one will turn out special.

Good luck, if you feel like trading a couple bottles let me know. Wouk be interesting in seeing how they compare/contrast.

Good to hear. I'd be happy to exchange some double deuces with you once I can confirm this batch comes out ok.

Regarding yeast nutrient, I added some to this batch since I had it sitting around and fermentation was down right EXPLOSIVE compared to the lazy result I had without it.

I have no idea how this will effect the end product, if at all, but it did its job for sure.

Good to hear!

I mentioned this in another thread where I am having some fermentation troubles, but with the addition of yeast nutrient in this batch my version of your recipe was done fermenting in a week or so and it tastes great!

I actually quite enjoyed drinking my hydrometer sample. The bittering hops were a tad overwhelming, but the beer is was only 9 days old so I expect everything to mellow out eventually.

My friend, I thank you again for the recipe. I just popped one, and it's awesome!

I'll definitely be brewing this one again, but next time I plan to stick more closely to your original recipe. Mine is DAMN HOPPY! Which isn't bad, but I'll try it your way next time.

Here's a head pic after only 6 days in the bottle:

Mine is also almost completely opaque. Next time I'll try some Irish moss to try and clear it up.

BTW, there is virtually 0 twang to this beer. I am not sure if its the hops overpowering it, the lowered percentage of sorghum in the batch compared to other fermentables or the fact that I added the sorghum late, but I can just barely pick it up when the beer warms near the end of a bottle.

Guess I should drink faster

Heres how mine turned out, crystal clear with a nice amber hue.
