I have a Zythos brew somewhere in the pipeline. Never used it before, but it sounds like a nice hop.

It's not a hop, per se, it's another catch-all piney/grapefruity blend. Mixed reviews. Probably an okay replacement if your dream distinctive American hop variety is sold out.

Ahh. If I knew that, I wouldn't have ordered them. I thought it was a new crossbred hop. They don't say what the blend is either. Oh well.

Just brewed a Cherry Chocolate Imperial Stout aged with brandy soaked french oak chips. If all works out I will be drinking it to warm me up the second half of winter here in Alaska around mid-Jan....Shawn

Matsciguy and I just bottled up a sour beer aged on apricots that had been fermenting for about 14 months. It was tasty. Quite tasty.

And it will be better with some carbonation.

Thinking about ~40 bottles of sour just waiting to be consumed does things to me.

Me too. With regards to my aforementioned Chocolate Milk Stout recipe: I let the spent grainbed "ripen" three days, then sparged again, dissolved in some golden brown cane sugar to 1.048 and pitched dregs of my buddy's delicious wild fermented beer, the dregs of my outrageously sour Berliner Weiss, a wild yeast I cultured from Bulgarian juniper berries, and a small Duvel bottle culture.

I can't decide which I'm more excited about, the "real beer" or the "sour small beer."
