    Where do you get most of your ingredients from..online store, etc.

  2. Simply Beer Says:

    I get my ingredients from Midewest Homebrewing Supplies (http://www.midwestsupplies.com/) or Northern Brewer (http://www.northernbrewer.com)

    What was your starting gravity and final gravity?

  4. Simply Beer Says:

    original gravity was 1.076, final is around 1.014

  5. kevin Says:

    thank you for publishing this recipe, it was very helpful. I just brewed something like it this weekend.

    my starting gravity was a little off of that (1.064). I altered the recipe some, I used caramunich I rather than caravienne I also used East Kent Goldings rather than Styrian Goldings and White Labs Belgian ale yeast.
