well i just popped open my second brew. and hot damn is it good. i mean my first was good and all (good enough to keep me going)but this is great. had a few troubles with it to. due to lack of bottles i had to keep in the primary for about 5-6 weeks. not sure if that is really that bad but still it annoyed me. i would also like to thank yooper for the recipe its a redhook esb clone.

Oh, I'm so glad that you're happy with your brew! That's awesome.

There's nothing like cracking open one of your own, and thinking, "I made this- and it's GOOD!", is there?

Congrats on your success.....the trick is to keep brewing faster than you can drink them.........you'll always have new successes in the pipeline.

5 - 6 weeks in the primary is no mistake.

That's good brewing.

...I can't do that though...
