This recipe is something I've been working on for awhile now, tweaking a little here a little there. I feel as though I have it pretty well to the point that I can call it finished. It has been very very well received by all those who have either brewed it or tried it. It is a gold medal winning recipe by LoloMT7 and a silver medal by myself. His scoring a perfect 50-50 at the Montana Mashup Homebrew Competition. Mine scoring a 46-50 at the Maine Homebrewers Competition placing behind my barrel aged version of a similar recipe.
