My Christmas guests picked this as the beer to drink with Christmas dinner.12/26/2017 9:31:25 AM2264#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=141#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Muggled Pale Alehttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comment2263Muggled Pale Ale Carbonation not where I want it, yet. The beer is also not as good as I was hoping. It might even have an infection. There is a similar flavor as I got on Red Eye Red Ale. Not nearly as bad, though. We'll see if I end up finishing this keg. 12/23/2017 5:46:59 AM2263#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on X-Mas Ale 2017http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=141#comment2262X-Mas Ale 2017 This is delicious. ??12/23/2017 5:40:25 AM2262#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=141#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Muggled Pale Alehttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#comment2261Muggled Pale Ale Kegged last night. 1.013 FG 12/20/2017 5:14:02 AM2261#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=117#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Summer Lovin' American Wheathttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=41#comment2260Summer Lovin' American Wheat Killed the keg tonight.
