Well, the taste is ok. Actually, the DFH clone was fantastic. But I think the dryhopping enhanced it so much, that it was my best beer ever. BP's 777 tastes fine, but maybe the rye and dryhopping cover any dryness. The FT clone was just bottled the other day- so out of the secondary it tasted like it should have, except a bit dry. I think the Lil Bastard is a bit too dry and the centenniel hops prodominate so much because if it. I told the_bird that it tastes like flowers. It's getting better, but the floral-ness is definitely there and I think it's because there isn't any residual sweetness to balance it out. No gushers or any problems, though. And once it hits the f.g out of the primary, it doesn't drop any more. I left a couple of them in secondary for 2-3 weeks, and the f.g. was the same. The beers are clear with nice head and open with a nice pffft. The DFH clone lasted about 2- 2 1/2 months before I drank it all, and it was still the same at the end.
Again, thanks so much. I'll see what happens next week when I make Orfy's Hobgoblin clone.
