Hi,

Just found this thread. If you see this - how did it turn out? I have just purchased Riwaka and Nelson/S hops.

Cheers

Hi Mas,

Wow this is an old brew. I remember doing this and not being overly impressed with the results. It ended up with very little hops character and tasted pretty underwhelming. I would be tempted to use a little more riwaka and swap to sauvin for something more interesting.

I hope that helps
