I finally got around to making 5 gal of this, although I messed up during the brewday with my hop additions. Instead of 1oz of Cascade @ 60, I inadvertently put in 1oz NB. Realized the mistake and then split the Cascade additions into 0.25oz @ 45, 30 and 15min.
Also ended up with closer to 6 gal (expected 5.5) but still got OG of 1.055.
Decided to try one last night after bottled/conditioning for close to 3 weeks and...
This is delicious! I have found the BlackBird Haus Ale.
STRONLY recommend this to anyone that has not ever tried it.
