  1. This sounds awesome. Maybe I can be in next years brew off if it’s done again.

  2. Come the new year I will purchase my supplies and get started. I’m excited.

    Aw, man. I would be all over this, but I can’t brew this weekend.

    What if I brew a week late and still ship them out on the same date? 😀

  4. This is a really, really good idea, and I like the secret ingredient component! Looking forward to reading about the results too!

    Excellent idea and though I cannot make the schedule I will be following the progress to see how all of the batches turn out. I look forward to hearing what all of the secret ingredients turn out to be!

    You know, the most challenging part is only making ONE change. I keep on thinking of things that involve TWO.

    I got it now, though. Will it be good? No idea. But it will most definitely be educational.

      You said it Eric, not supposed to be easy but fun. Takes a bit of thought to make a unique beer with one secret ingredient. So you’re clear you can add, subtract or change 1 thing. So you could Change the yeast or add Another hop or increase the chocolate malt.

    What a fantastic idea. Wish I could join but have both my fermenters full at the moment and no time to brew. Maybe keep me in mind for next year. I’ll be following your brew-off to see how it goes. Cheers!

    This is a great idea, Peter. Maybe you should put together a panel of judges. I can’t brew yet, but I am an experienced beer drinking who is willing to help!

  9. John says:

    Lisa and I will definitely be following along to see how it goes. Maybe Lisa will want to enter the next one!

    Just out of curiosity – what have people ended up as an OG?

    When I put this recipe together in BeerSmith it gives me an estimated OG of 1.060, not 1.046. That’s pretty significantly different.

    I mean.. not that I mind. 🙂 Just making sure I’m on track.

    Huh. Interesting. So about 65% efficiency, then?

    Guess I’ll see how mine turns out.
