Fine with me too...I think these recipes should be treated as loose guidelines. Follow the recipe to the letter or stray and add your own personality to it, whatever you want to do!

in my opinion, recipes are what you right down AFTER you brew (or cook), not something you use before you start!

Another +1. I totally agree. I'm brewing mine next weekend, and plan on going from a suggested recipe OG of 1.050 to something closer to 1.065. I'll try to have the same characteristics of the recipe, while still making this MINE.

Would anyone be interested in the 8 beers of Chanukah? I made a thread but haven't gotten any replies. It's called "8 crazy delights" if anyone is interested

Beers done fermenting, so the final abv (before the liquor addition) is 13.1%, a real winter warming spiced bourbon imperial stout, going ti rack to secondary onto the spice mixture either later today or tomorrow.

I missed the selection for the 12 beers of christmas. I would be interested in making some hanukkah (sp) beers. I'm not Jewish but the lord loves a drinking man. What kind of recipes did you have in mind
