My beers normally dont last this long so I rarely think about shelf life, but I am on a bit of a diet....
Red, if ya aint made it yet you might wanna try that tweak, if you did make it it will still be amazing
Ha! Well I ordered an extra ounce and they came in at 15.6% so I think I have plenty.
Hopville actually yelled at me for having too much. That and I wanted to try a full boil. So I think I'll go with:
.25, .5, .75, 1, and dry hop 1.5
That should keep it American enough for me.
