    I opened a 2008 Abyss last night, it's been in my garage fridge since purchased. Very nice I must say.

    And as if Backfire bike nights aren't great enough, there is another brewery besides NW Peaks within rock throwing distance, Hilliard's Beer! They have a cool little brewery with a canning machine that fills 16oz cans! Plus several tasty varieties on tap! :freaky

    Hey guys,

    Just an FYI. If you visit Valholl brewery regularly you probably already know this, but for everyone else Valholl brewing will be moving its location. Link follows:

    http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2012/mar/18/after-a-year-poulsbo-brewery-ready-to-expand/

    And here is there website: http://www.valhollbrewing.com/

    While in town check out our other 2 breweries:


    Sound Brewing: http://www.soundbrewery.com/

    Slippery Pig Brewing: http://www.slipperypigbrewing.com/

    Sadly Battenkill Brewing in town has decided to close: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Battenkill-Brewing-Company/216123818405146

    Still 9200 residents and 3 breweries. Not bad!

    I have been making a similar style over the last couple years. I use all Pilsner malt and a lot of Amarillo hops. Sometime the simplist recipes are the best.
    Fermentation is with Ale yeast and and turns into a very clean, hoppy brew. I Mash it at 150F so it ends up on the dry side.

    I live in Missoula, MT. and we have several micro breweries that make some excellant beers.... i turned my old garage fridge into a "kegerator" and buy 5 gallon kegs from these breweries, in addition to my own homebrews......I have learned to love kegged beer, it is not pasteurized and I think that makes a big difference in flavor. These kegged beers, once fermented. are never allowed to go over 40 degrees..........:clap

    Sorry I don't check this often enough.

    Here is the hop additions of Amarillo hops:
    2 oz. First wort addition
    2 oz. 60 minutes
    2 oz. 0 minites

    Pretty easy schedule.
    BTW this is a 12 gallon batch.

    Are you far enough along in your process to have anything setup for this with your own beer?
