Notes

This is an attempt to replicate the Kasteel Winter.

Use 2 packs of Saf Ale US-05 and 1 pack of Safebrew T-58

Boil half a pound of lactose with 4 oz of dark chocolate bar, then add to keg and condition for 65 years.....Just kidding....At least three weeks or more.

Scored 45 out of 50 points at the 2015 Peach State Brew Off. Advanced to mini BOS, but was bumped out for being in the wrong category.
