Brew Day!

I bought Sam Calagione's Extreme Brewing last year, and have been brewing his peppercorn rye-bock. Everyone except BJCP judges love it, but that's for another post.

So today I thought I would brew Kiwit from the book:

The recipe calls for the kiwis to stay in primary. I know, I know. That's not the way it is supposed to be done. But I'm trying the recipe first.
