Yeah, me too. They might still be in the evaluation phase of the product as well.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

I agree. I think he said that they had been using them for a month. Is the first batch even ready to drink yet?

Don't expect tasty results any time soon.

They saved a week on fermenting and now they'll spend 3 years on conditioning it.

It has to be more than that. My guess is they have isolated reproduction incompetent mutants (and who knows what else that brings along to the party).
