Brewer's Comments

This beer used the double brew process to keep the efficiency high and minimize the amount of boil-down needed. The process was rather complicated and took all day long, but worked well. As expected, this beer took some time to mature. It faired pooly in early competitions, but finally took a first place in the California State Homebrew Comptition at an age of 10 months
