just thought I'd leave a little update, I brewed a variation of this one about 2 weeks after I had previously posted. I followed this grain bill but used Kaiser's mash procedure and hop schedule. This beer turned out wonderful and received a great deal of praise from everyone I shared with. I was very disappointed when the keg finally gave out last week. I will definitely make this one again, next time I'll follow greencoat's hop schedule so I can compare.
It stayed right at 67 the whole primary, I did get some slightly fruity ester tones so next time I will probably aim for lower 60's. However, I do recall listening to Jamil discuss how he prefers Alts with the slightly fruity tones an I think I can totally relate. great job on this one greencoat
