Just tried the first bottle, good stuff. its still a bit "green" as its only been in the bottle for about 3 weeks i had to try it. light banana/clove aroma nice mouth feel to it can barely notice the coriander, just enough. great head on it, lacy two fingers. Im very pleased with the way it came out. Just need to get some more thoughts on it, going to be taking it to some local clubs/shops for a second opinion. I will be brewing again with a few changes.(Huge starter, and add sugar at end of boil)
cheers

i am going to be adding sugar to the primary once it slows some more, probably tomorrow, friday. Should i pitch some yeast at that point and or yeast nutrient with the sugar?
Just add the sugar. I have done that with several brews and it works just fine. The yeast multiplies during the first part of fermentation and eats up a good portion of the fermentable sugars in the wort. When you add the sugar the yeast goes on another feeding frenzy. Be prepared for blow off, so make sure you have a tube in place. About 30 minutes after adding the sugar it will go crazy again.
