Luckily I caught it right as it happened and moved the kettle to the bath tub with some ice water.

Fermentation was slow to start but really picked up after day two. I fermented around 68 and slowly brought it to about 72 over a weeks time. I dry hopped after 7 days. FG at dry hopping was ~1.018. Which gives me about 5% ABV. I'm really happy with the results. It's definitely malty but not overly so. Should get better in a month or so. I'm going to enter it into blue bonnet brew off in dallas with a couple other brews. We'll see how it does. I'll report back if I can remember too..

I did a first wort hopping with this one as well. Love the smooth bitterness it gives a beer. If you haven't tried it I highly recommend it!!

Yeah, that first wort hopping really does a very nice job. Glad this hit for you.
