Thanks Johnny. I was thinking it might be a decent base to play with hop additions with as well, i.e. bland enough that I can doctor it up and see what difference there is. Thinking I'd do the kit, but split it three of four ways and see how it comes out.
That leads to another question, where can I source hops in the valley? I know some farms in the Wolfville/Grand Pre area grow them, can they be found anywhere in this end of the valley?
