Beer Quest: Experiment Ale A

Tomorrow I will be brewing the first of two beers that are testers for Hop Head Farms.  The beer itself is pretty straight forward, I am not shooting for any ground breaking maneuvers.  Both beers will be exactly the same.  Well, except for a minor detail.  The way the hops were pelletized is the matter…
