thanks for the good luck wishes bro! I believe they helped me win a blue ribbon in the Belgian Golden Strong category. Woot!

Congrats! In that category, I see you were up against the brewer who took BOS. Good work!

Thank you very much, Kenc. I’ve been told this recipe is my best, by several people. I missed sendin’ it off to AHA regionals, though (dammit to hell!).

Am looking forward to seeing the scoresheets.

Rock on, brah.
