Incidentally, the two empty carboys mean more brewing this weekend or next. I'm open to suggestions for the next project(s).
* EWA is taken largely from the recipe published by Stephen Harrod Buhner in his "Psychotropic and Highly Intoxicating Beers" chapter. I chose an English ale yeast that tends to leave a fair amount of soluble sugars and provide something of a apple or pear nose. I figured the very bitter wormwood would need something that complex to go along with it.
The Red Ninja Alt is the first beer I dsigned on my own from the ground up. Granted, I stayed within the general specifications for a beer of that type, but the recipe is entirely mine. Here's hoping that both came good in the face of my fevered brewing two weeks ago.
