Lol! Funny you mention that, I just shot off an email to Brian. I met him over the Summer at the Northern California Homebrewers' Festival. He gave an awesome talk and passed around some of his new beer (stout...ish close to porter) that had no hops but redwood tips. It was pretty awesome. I'm not sure how, but after the talk I ended up chatting with him over a few pints and he gave me a Moonlight Brewing pint glass. We also have an acquaintance in common though I'm not sure if this is good or bad... hopefully he'll find the time to answer me... will keep posted...I agree - that beer's super good. You might just want to write to Moonlight and see what they say. It's a pretty small operation, I think, mostly one guy as far as I know. Let us know what you find out!
Wonder if it was a D&T gone bad..Nick916 said:Anyone here had the Moonlight "Left for Dead" Sour Black? I had it about two weeks ago and it was excellent. I really want to try and make it but not sure where to start.
Some brewers do and some don't. Brian was very friendly and when I asked for help with a Homebrew version of D&T he sent me his grain bill & hops in no time. He's very Homebrew friendly...Nick916 said:I thought about asking but wasn't sure if that was bad form. Do brewers give away their secrets that easy?
No, not yet. This year was slow for my brewing. I'm hoping to ramp it up now that I'm working on a new system. I have at least three other brews t do before I put this back in rotation. I'll definitely do it in the next few months and keep updating.OSBrain said:Hey Brewing Clamper,
Did you ever brew another batch of Death and Taxes? I love this beer and it would be awesome to have a recipe that gets close to the original.
Yeah, I thought it was meh. I got a lot of vinylish phenolics.Anyone here had the Moonlight "Left for Dead" Sour Black? I had it about two weeks ago and it was excellent.
