Wow! The Texas Bock I recipe that I've seen shows that to be a pretty big beer. OG of 1.094 and ABV of 9.6%. Which yeast did you pick up for this one? Let us know how it comes out.

Well actually Texas sucks, but since we're all stuck here, and apparently aren't free to leave, then it's certainly OK to convince ourselves that "sucks" is really "rules". ;)
Texas Rules!! Rock On!! :D
Free Kingwood!!!
