I am going to brew a big ole batch. I am going to tinker with you recipe slightly. I find my kegs aren't lasting even a week. They are too good and my friends and I are cashing them out in like 4 days. (and no we don't have an alcohol problem we are still in college. I've got a keggle that i plan to use for this huge batch. I am still doing extracts and all my brews have been awesome. I am going to use two different yeast just to experiment with them. One in each better bottle carboy of course.
When did you add the peel? Would you add more?
Did you add the last Cascade to the primary or just at flame off?
