I think Florida has 26 Microbreweries. Colorado has the most per capita. We have 10 opening this year in the Springs and we had 5 or 6 already with a population of 600K in the city and 900K surrounding. I like many styles, but prefer stouts, ambers and ipa's.

Love a cream stout. I do secondary because I like to harvest my yeast from the primary and when I dry hop I don't want the hop material to lay on the yeast cake. My Indian Blonde Ale is my own bastardization of styles. I make a belgian blonde and use american yeast and hops, but do more late hop additions and dry hop it to give it a hop forward flavor and aroma, but without the bitterness. It's become a favorite amongst my friends. Are you using lactose in the stout?
If you hadn't told me about being a bit off, then I would never have known. Looking good.
