I'm brewing this tomorrow. Any suggestions or tips? I'm brewing with my father in law who is gluten intolerant.

I have brewed all grain batches before (non GF), but this will be my first extract brew. Please any suggestions are welcome!!

It's a pretty easy brew. My only tip is patience. Mine tasted and smelled off for a while. After two weeks in a keg it's delicious. I actually get new flavors every time I pour one. I made it for a party I'm having soon but it's not going to last haha

I am amazed at how this beer changes over time. I wish I could leave it alone long enough to age a bit more but I think the keg is almost empty. Great brew. Will do again sometime. I might leave the molasses out though, I think it adds an odd aftertaste. Also I added vanilla vodka instead of bourbon.

The next time we brew this, I would definitely suggest changing the bourbon out for vanilla vodka. The flavors are more complimentary. Thanks for letting us know how these batches turned out! It's always nice to know when other people succeed with the recipe!

Brewing this now!! Should I put the anise and walnuts into the primary? Or siphon out just the beer?

Got a nice 3/4 inch krausen, one airlock bubble every second, and the closet smells GREAT!

This was very tasty. Just emptied the keg yesterday. A friend wants more for his wedding.

I've already posted in another thread about this, and concluded that it's NOT an infection, but did anyone else get this after about a week in the primary?
