Brewed this recipe yesterday with the following mods:
* Bumped the LME to 5lbs
* Used Kent Goldings hops
* Added .5lb of Vienna Malt to the steep
* Combined flame-out and secondary hops at flame-out.
Made a starter using 1 cup of LME in a quart of water 2 days prior and pitched at 60 degrees. Within 2-3 hours I had signs of fermentation. After 5 hours I had major blow-off! Fermenting steady now at 67 degrees. Will ferment this out and then secondary in the Keezer for 3 weeks.
Bought enough ingredients to make a second batch. Will be kegging both batches and enjoying this through summer.

Dont be upset by the result you didnt get with the work you didnt do.
