Notes
treat this like 2 beers, your going to need 4 vessels or it will blow the top

we need 8 packs of dry yeast with 4 liter starter or 4 2 liter starters at 1.100 gravity

wait 2 weeks to ferment and stir or shake after a week, let this age

the final gravity should be lower after 2 weeks

let this age at least 30 days
