Yeast: White Labs California Ale Yeast (WLP-001) w/ 1.5L stirplate starter, decanted


Going to make this beer today or tomorrow. I just made a stirplate and tested it with some washed yeast, and now I (obviously) need to do something with this yeast that I have prepared! Just made up the recipe, hop additions are based off a past IPA that used different hops but came out great. I love the smell and taste of Crystal hops in my beers and they have become one of my favorite hops, and have a lot of Willamettes and Crystals in my freezer that need to be used up. I'm hoping the full lb of smoked malt isn't too much, but I think the hoppiness will overwhelm the smoke quite a bit, so it should be noticable but not strong.

Not to revive a dead thread, but how did this come out?? Was it overpowering? Did you secondary with chips or anything like that?
