Soooo....I apologize for the long dely in responding, my job tends to get in the way of my brewing.
As for a recipe, well, it is an extract kit from Brewers Best. I did not alter the directions at all as I plan to do another one with some slight variations.
I like trying new extract kits and following the directions to a T then making adjustments per my preference.
Nice! You'll have to try a split batch with different attire to see which you preferLOL I suppose I am not getting out alive here unless I tell all.

I made no variation to the brew process, I wanted to see how things would turn out. As of this point, I would brew this again with no variation to the process as I am very pleased with the results.
As for my water, I don't do anything to the water, just fill the kettle and proceed. However, I do plan on doing a side by side brew of the same kit using regular tap water and one using distilled water.
I fermented in a Catalyst Conical Fermenter for 3-4 weeks the proceeded to keg the beer and cold crash.. I prefer kegging because I would rather clean and sanitize one vessel rather than 50+ bottles lol
Oh, and one more thing, I am not sure this is relevant but I was wearing my leopard print mesh thong while brewing this beer. LOL Just trying to be thorough with my description
