Had three of these this evening and I am feeling the 6.5% ABV (I know, I'm a lightweight all of a sudden). Taking a case of this up North this weekend. I expect to bring quite a bit back unless my two brothers dive in full bore. I figure three of four beers and a glass of wine with dinner and I'll be rockin' and singin' on the front porch (we have a screened in porch that overlooks the creek and bike trail with a ledge to perch your favorite drink (or citronella candles or both)). Many a fine nap has been completed during my short lifetime on that porch.

Had my older brother compare the clone to the real thing. He liked my version better as it had a bit more residual sugar and made the bitterness less apparent. My next tweeks will be to use loose leaf hops for the dry hops to hopefully push up the hop character in the finish. Plus I'd drop the 80L Crystal malt back to 4 oz, or substitute 40L Crystal malt as the color has more of a copper hue than the commercial version. Will definitely make this one again (possibly next weekend) depending on when the grapes and buckets come in from Harford (I'm not expecting them for a few more weeks).

Buckets coming at the end of this week. Wish I had made another batch, only have 8 of these left, it's f-ing good IMHO. Seems to take to bottling pretty well as most higher hopped ales do.

It is a nice, cheap option. Only problem is you have to tailor your schedule to their arrival. Now they aren't coming until next weekend and I have no grain and don't feel like a 75 minute round trip to go pick some up (plus it is pretty rainy here today, I'm a fair weather brewer).

As far as I have been able to determine, the closest I could get buckets might be Atlanta or Nashville, though I've not found any outlets there. Both are 200-250 mile round trips. I am trying to work with a local homebrew store to see if they could get a list going for shipments. They'll profit and I'll get to buy juice buckets. But this area is really all about brewing beer. If folks do make wine, its from local grapes from local vineyards.
