I use East COast yeast's BRY-97 frequently and everything that “he” said was spot on. My last pseudo Ballantine IPA I used mostly late addition hops and was extremely muted. That dude knows his stuff and his information is truly missed.

I think someone messed up again. I get a lot of different offers from them and another coupon I have says its excluded. Maybe before they change it, someone else will get a great deal too!I got coupons for NB and Midwest in my email and I remembered someone posting that the GF was excluded so I tried using them. It looks like they will work for now. I’m not really interested in buying one, but if someone may be, now might be the time.
They were always excluded except this one time when I bought mine...don't know if someone messed up or lost their job over it but I got my GF delivered for $731. Pretty good deal. Maybe now that NB & MW are owned by the "brewery-that-shall-not-be-named", the discount may apply.
Good question. I know NB and Midwest are the only places I have seen them, but are they exclusively selling them or is it just that other places don’t carry them?This buyout thing doesn’t bother me yet. I stopped ordering from NB and Midwest years ago when they were bought out by an investment company and their customer service and speed of processing orders dropped. I’ll be more concerned when they start trying to prevent other homebrew shops from selling kits similar to their beers or their homebrew kits...or if they become the exclusive stores for major homebrew products or brands.They already have. I happen to like their Big Mouth Bubbler fermenters. Is there another source out there?
When I tasted it later that day, there was a nice prickly carbonation, and the oversweet character was gone. Note to self - carbonation seems to help counter that artificially sweet character.
The only thing that it needed more of is heat from the ginger. I got some spiciness on the lips and tongue, but it needs more kick for me. I really don't want to go up on the fresh ginger, because this recipe already scales up to a kilo of fresh, prepped ginger for a full 2.5 gallon batch.From what I read, simmering ginger will also bring out the heat. You could simmer some to add spiciness and steep the rest for flavor.
