High alpha EKG
« on: October 15, 2010, 06:21:44 PM »
I just got 8 oz of EKG pellets from Northern Brewer and they're listed on the package as 7.2% AA.  That's the highest I've ever seen them.  Anyone ever seen that before?  I'm kinda wondering if it's a typo or something.  I don't know what year they are but I'm guessing 2009.

Excellent.  Thanks for the confirmation.  Off to measure out what I need for tomorrow's brew.
