Today I realized that I still have a couple more spots to store fermenters (despire currently having about 13 gallons finishing, and another 18 gallons actively fermenting...I got to slow down!) and I still have ingredients left just laying around, so why not make a new batch o' something (I need to use up this stuff anyway)?
