This recipe really got me excited. I brewed it last weekend, breaking in my new barley crusher. My effeciency jumped to around 85%, so the OG came out a little higher. I did top it off with some water to keep it in check. The first 48 hours was a really rigorous fermentation, with constant airlock activity, and krausen up into the neck of the carboy, a first for me. It's settled down now, and I plan on transferring it to secondary in the coolest part of the basement to help clear it up. I can't wait to try it! I should probably get a second batch in the pipeline, since I have a feeling this will go fast.

I did the AG version of this brew back in early April as my first AG attempt. I got 93% eff., so the OG was at 1.054 IIRC. I'm drinking it now(and have been for a couple weeks, and it is BY FAR the best beer I have ever made. I can't get enough of it. I'll definitely be making this again soon. Thanks again, BierMuncher!!!

This was my first all grain brew ever. I had so many problems with it. Didn't have my technique down, bad temps, stuck sparge etc.

Tried one that has been bottled for 3 weeks or so and it is really good. It amazes me how a beer that tasted so bad going into the bottles comes out so good. I cannot wait to do another batch and see what it tastes like without all of the problems that I had with the 1st one.

I sub'd 2 lbs of flaked rice for two row on my latest attempt. Trying to make it a little "lighter" for SWMBO.

brewed this three weeks ago and just tapped it today. I had a different store than usual grind my grains and ended up way higher efficiency on this. OG was 1.049.

But holy freaking crap - Biermuncher you are a genious! This beer is out of control good.

I brewed another 5 gallons of this yesterday while the first batch was still in primary....I just know this stuff won't last long. My first batch was racked to secondary with dry hops....the taste was great, other than some possible diacetyl, which will hopefully clear itself up.

I brewed this recipe and entered it into a competition. Scored a 36 where the highest score for the category was a 39. The only negative comment was that it was on the hoppy side and not balanced enough for the style. Fine by me.
