You nailed it right on......I know it won't be my best beer. I know it could be better. But, due to time restraints, I'm gonna try and make the best beer I can for the time I have to get it done. Then, once I get back from Ohio, I brew 10 gallons of Oreo Cream Stout, and and totally blow their minds.
Gonna look at my recipe, and lower the OG from the normal, also make adjustments to the hop additions to keep the IBU in the same range. I really think I have a good shot at making a good, drinkable beer in this timeframe.
