And its not too shabby... its a magic hat #9 clone, and I think I shoulda
used a little bit more apricot, but considering I f'ed up and put in some
hops in the wrong spot (made it slightly more bitter) it came out pretty
good. Too bad #9 isnt a very complex taste to begin with, but Im gonna make
another batch to bring to a festival with me in august, and try not to f up
the recipe this time, also gonna do a batch of Otter Creek Copper, and
thinking about a slightly choclate stout with cherries (done with real
cherries and not extracts..). This could turn into a dangerous hobby.

well maybe that's why you like these beers.  ;)

i'm from VT and OC is certainly NOT one of my favorite beers.  although,
they did market a blueberry/loganberry brew this spring/early summer that is
OK.  MH #9 is too....well, apricotty for me.  i know that's what they are
aiming for, but it just doesn't do much for me.  ever get to McNeill's?

Well, I only added half the apricot flavor that it called for so it wasnt
too sweet, and I added extra bittering hops, it came out pretty good, and
slightly darker than the real stuff. I like the copper ale, but I also enjoy
the taste of copper, go figure. Never been to McNeill's either...

What type of beers do you like? And what are your feelings on Magic Hat's
Heart of Darkness?

Hummm!!! McNeil's!! Dead Horse IPA, Ruby Red,... I'm from Montreal, Canada
and went twice there to sample his beers. I will go again next friday, with
3 friends we are going to Vermont's Brewers Festival and are making a sligth
detour (about twice the distance from Montreal to Beerlington) to go there.
