    You know you’re a homebrewer when you see a license plate that reads “FWH 1770” and the letters of the plate make you think about homebrew!

    Really not too bad, it's having a lot of fruit in the house that bring them in though. Gone from a peaceful hippy "hey man please leave" to a "Die Bast%%$ Die" approach. Literally only one in the house but I will hunt that bleep down lol

    Great idea!!!
    What about some Carmel/60? Would beat the poop out of sugar!!!(malty water profile of course)
    Roasted Barley (with a bitter profile), then cap it with Honey Malt!!!
    What about some orange zest?
    Cocoa nibs?
