    Yes I did :) I added crystal wheat to the grain bill for body, flavor and head retention and it worked very nicely. The head lasted all the way to the last swallow, which is what I was after.

    I must admit though, it was odd pouring from a bottle that weighs more empty than the beer weighs itself. I bottled in those old thick glass bar deposit bottles, that I was lucky to get a hold of.

    I'm completely happy with my recipe now, i don't plan on any changes. This will be my house brew, from here on out.

    I'm going to wait until next week and take a few bottles to my buddy who owns the BBQ joint and see if he wants to make it his restaurant brew. It should go well with smoked pork butt. I suspect It's a little strong (alcohol) for restaurant brew, but I can adjust the ABV down by the amount of pure cane sugar I added to the recipe. I used pure cane sugar because I can tell if corn sugar or sryup was used in the primary ferment, since it almost instantly gives me a headache. I know they say the yeast eats all the sugar but I know better... or my head knows better :)
