    An ale is different from an IPA right?

    If thats the case, I would try one.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    The bottles are Double Black IPA @ about 8.2% abv. In the primary fermenter is a single amber IPA @ about 6.4%.

    I'm tryin ta get another 50 bottles of Fence Stretcher Farmhouse ale @ 6.0% in at the same time as my Winter Warmer @ 10%!

    And you'd love it. Not very much hops at all. I can't keep that stuff in the fridge. My dad and my friend Tim get more of it than I do. They call it a "Farmhouse Ale," whatever that's supposed to mean. Tastes a bit like Heffeweitzen, if that helps.

    My dad and I made a vanilla bourbon stout a year back and it turned out pretty good. Im a big fan of stouts, porters and brown ales, but theres not many beers id say i dislike. The only ones i can say im not a real big fan of are lambics and shandys.

    I like most beers as well but not a fan of shandys either. Never tried a lambic. I have been going to beer stores and looking for something new or different.

    Amazing what they think of to mix with beer. Kona brewing co. makes one called Koko Brown. Coconut in it. Odd.

    Fun trying new ones. Usually drinkable. The shandy took a long time to get rid of.

    When I become Beer Czar under Trump I will institute an American version of Rhineheitsgaboot. Yes, I spelled it incorrectly, probably.

    You won't be able to brew anything beyond pilsner strength, then.

    I am a traditionalist Stig.

    I see no reason to put lavender in beer.
