Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Just bottled my Surly Furious clone. Somewhere, I lost like a gallon. Oh well. Taste is good right out of the fermenter. I am never bottling again. Straight to kegs on the next batch.

Mine is called Furious IPA. It is from Midwest brewing and was developed with the folks at Surly. I agree on the big grapefruit finish. The Lagunitas Holiday Ale is the same way. Like biting into a...
