This is the recipe as designed, not as brewed. I would love to try it again with my new setup so I can get a decent efficiency. I can't imagine how good it would be brewed correctly considering this crap version tastes really good. For a low gravity beer it's got a nice malty backbone that balances very nicely with the hops. I think I picked a very good yeast for this one because it gave it an aroma and flavor very reminiscent of an abbey ale. If you're leery about trying this recipe, I am going to do it again sometime soon, this time properly, and I will let y'all know how it turns out.
