One Last Lambic Hurrah Brewday

No time like the present to start building some reserve lambic for when it is time to take the first pull from the barrel. After all, starting now means I don’t have to brew at such a crazy, breakneck pace when it gets right down to it. Plus, I can always try other random crazy shit with this stuff if I feel so inclined. Which, might I add, I do.
