This is a really good recipe I got from my local homebrew dude, and it's the last partial mash I'm doing. Going up to all grain from here, and going to work on this sucker until I get an authentic Chimay Red Label. I wish I'd cultured from Chimay, but it's still good with the Wyeast. Let this stuff age! I've buried some in the backyard, and ain't gonna touch it until July.
