Tustin Monster Brew 2

Back to the Recipe Vault.

On February 21, 2010, Jon Porter invited the members of Pacific Gravity Homebrewing Club to brew a batch of beer at Tustin Brewing Company. Everybody got to take home a bucket of unfermented beer. Then they could add any additional ingredients, pick a yeast of their choice, and then let if terment.

Thanks to Jon Porter for giving us this unique opportunity.
