    It's good, but good enough to place 2nd in 'beer wars?' That will be up to the newly Anointed Beer Judge, @MRB Josh R!
  3. So that's actually the coveted and legendary "Safale BE-134" orange T-shirt? I'll trade you a 6-pack of homebrewed saison for it! Seriously, I haven't seen this saison yeast for sale locally, but will keep looking. Hope you guys had a great time at the conference.🍻
  4. The coveted and legendary "SafAle BE-256" orange T-shirt?! Creeps, grab me one of those!

  7. You could always add rum & oak.
  8. +5 on that Gopher. I've even given those caps a little extra tightening just before putting bottles in the fridge. Whatever laws of physical science are in play related to lost carbonation, I will not lose a beer at this critical stage of the brewing process!

    Since I was juicing mandarins anyway, I followed @MRB Tim's recommendation and added some to my Brother's Beer.

    Added the additional mandarin juice along with the dry-hop tonight -- this should be tasty!🍊

    Status of Tipo de Belga Dobles. -- I will say that this brew does have a nice Dubbel feel to it.

    These beers are going to be great and will probably create enough buzz in the craft beer world to justify a new BJCP Substyle 34D. Experimental International Mixed-Style Hybrid Ale!

    Looks like I better check my inventory to see if I have any Cervezas left! Nice modifications though -- I'm pretty sure that you just took out my Cerveza de Hermano.

    I'll get back to you on that Hoppy -- I think I have at least one of everything in inventory, including about 8 weissbiers, haha.
