Wow. There's appealing to a broad audience and then there's giving entirely unrealistic expectations of results. I tried my first Lock/Stock at five months. It was good. At nine months it was great. At 15 months+ it's fantastic.
In regards to the timing change, I also noticed all of the beers have a conditioning time of two weeks now. For example the Nilla Porter used to say 4 months and now its two weeks. Also, the Lock, Stock, Barrel was 9 months to a year and now says two weeks.
I’ve sent my hops out for testing. It looks like the lab that I used doesn’t test anymore but here’s a link to another.
When I had mind tested I had harvested about 80oz of cascade. I sold them and wanted to provide a lab analysis so people knew what they were getting. Plus I’d know.
