Vertical Epic 12/12/12 clone, anyone make it yet?
I've had a few bombers of this years Stone Vertical Epic and I love this stuff. They just released the recipe in their blog. Lots of spices. So much is kinda scares me. I've made a batch of spiced beer before and I way overdid it.
Has anybody tried their hand at this yet? If so, what recipe did you use and how did it turn out?
This is the recipe I was considering doing for a 5.5 gal batch.
