I am brewing this as well. This weekend. Will let you know how it goes. Houblon thanks for all the help.

If you want to give me an early Bday present the houblon light would be great.

houblon, any thoughts on water? i have pretty hard water, so I was gonna cut it with distilled, probably add a bit of lactic acid.

maybe i'll just start with distilled and build up from there...
