We tried the Sam Adams 76 when it came out a couple of months ago. I read on their website that it was a blend of IPA and lager. Is this a common practice? I am a newbie, and thought that this would help my less than perfect batch (i.e. my first original recipe, AKA Heavy Attack). I cut the Heavy with one third Bud, and it was pretty damn good. I am interested in finding out if I have blasphemed or saved an otherwise, "not so horrible batch". What are your thoughts? Thanks, and Cheers!
