+1 to the spray bottle suggestion. Either fill it from a batch you made, or just make it in the bottle. 1.5 mL of Star San concentrate makes a 1 quart batch of spray.

I really gotta make a purple IPA sometime to demonstrate how stupid it is to have a "style" based on color alone.<cough> Schwartzbier?
But it could also be the recipe, dark crystal comes across as dried fruit too.
I've never been much of a dry-hopper, but IME 3 ounces hasn't been overpowering with other varieties in other styles.
So a buddy and I were having a conversation about final gravity. I have several recipes that have finished below 1.010. Around 1.005-1.008 to be exact. He mentioned getting that low usually means wild yeast was introduced somewhere. I've only been brewing for a year and typically US-05 is my go-to yeast. What do you think of this hypothesis?
I think it's completely off the mark unless the beers taste like they're infected.
You can get them for $34.25 @ Deep Wood Brew Products....and the bottles are bare (nothing printed on them).
Damn S04 does work fast. Had full krausen the next morning and it completely dropped out over the next two days. I may keg this one a bit sooner than normal.
Don't know if this should actually be called a "summer ale" but I am not sure what category it would fit into.
