two beers one brew

Post #1 made 7 years ago
here's an experiment that turned out to be two outstanding beers.
i brewed 40L of one wort, split it into two cubes and fermented with a few variations.
one beer is a Belgian Strong Ale and the other a HellerBock Lager (Maibock).

the Bock was a huge hit at our Israeli Independence Day party last night. i downed 4 pints and got a very nice buzz ;)
