Yeah, I had to tweek the wire part of the closure to tighten it up...
but after that, they hold fizz good and work fine.  PPL lined up
at the bar at New Belgium brewery were wanting growlers like that,
the barkeep said they were my private stash...and they were not
available at the brewery. lol

Well, I have the rectangular BLUE coleman extreme. I like the divot in the bottom
for the drain. It helps get the last nth of wert out. It allows me to make Either
5 or 10 gallon batches.  AND I could always use it for the high gravity 25# of grain
stuff as well.  It just allows a lot of flexibility for multiple varieties.  I looked at the
circular styles as well, and the 10 gallon cylindrical gott orange was kind of spendy
compared to the blue coleman extreme.  I believe without doing the math,
volumetrics are greater in the blue.  As for the corners and dough in,
I use a large wire whip and have absolutely no problems with dough balls.

I do have the option of picking up the 78qt Coleman extreme-question is this:  Is this too large a size if I wanted to so a 5 gallon batch?

All of my 5-gallon batches have had plenty of extra room in my 36-quart Coleman Xtreme.

When or if you start messin around with 25 lbs of grain say for a barleywine or other high gravity bill,
the 36 quart will be a disappointment....IMO

But out of the deal, I no longer smoke tobacco.... ;)

Also wondering if anyone knows which hop is giving the slight citrus/tropical fruit notes that I'm picking up.  Wasn't aware of a noble hop giving this flavor?

Could be yeast giving those notes.  I have yet to try this beer....but if I see it I'll give it a go. Thanx for the mention

Even beer, BUT it is worthy of honorable mention because when
you find something good you might wanna tell people about it
and share the goodness...

Well, I got a bottle of Meukow VS Black Cognac....and I gotta say
This stuff is NICE.

Aroma of vanilla and nice oily ring around the periphery of the snifter...
taste of Oak notes smooth on the palate warm alcohol glow...
just really NICE....wish I could afford the Napoleon :'(

Pretty stuff
