I have been brewing for several years now, and this one is definately one of the favorites. You need to age this one for 8weeks or more in order to allow it to meld together. Much better than the store bought versions.
Brewed the extract version using 5 gallons of water. I only used half of the hops for the first hop addition but followed the recipe there after. Racked into a secondary carboy and then kegged. Let it age for 2 weeks and then drank. Excellent! I'm going to order another kit very soon.
Be patient with this beer! I found a growler from a batch 6 months old. Drank it this past weekend. Amazing difference. Aging will make this beer extremely smooth. The perfect mix of sweet and bitter. I will always age this beer a minimum of 6 months from now on.
This is my favorite. I've brewed this 8 times. Richer than Killians and sharper, not heavier. Very little to no bitter aftertaste.
Wait 5 weeks after the brew date, you'll be rewarded handsomely. Brewed 2 batches and plan on many more. I have never tasted a beer as good as this one once it ages.
