Hit the mash temp dead on. Heated water to 180 to account for the cold weather. Bottled on 3/13/05 with 4oz corn sugar. It is partially carbed after 4 days and taste great. Well balanced and just enough corriander and Orange peele to let you know it is there. No changes need to be made.



A salute to men who held Bastogne during the Second world War not a pansy ass beer if not for men like these we would be speaking German or Japanese when you raise your glass think of them.
