Designed and brewed this with my friend Holden who is visiting me here in London. We brewed together a couple times back in the states, but I believe this is the biggest beer either of us have ever done. Target gravity was 1.095 and we ended up at 1.091 which I’m quite happy about. Will be about 3 weeks in the primary then we’ll bottle and let it age for a few months.
