Ok this is one of the first mixes I've tried. New to diy. He is right about a 5 day steep. It's very good imho. The apple filling is slightly overpowering right now but blends so good with oakwood and and sweet and smokey. I'm interested in what it taste like after a longer steep. I'm making alot of CB' s recipes and can't wait till the rest of them meet their required steep time.
