I am looking forward to brewing the clone real soon so I can do a SxS taste test next Christmas. If the clone is as close as the masses in this thread have said then I should be in for a real treat!! I had planned on brewing the Westy 8 clone first... But since i happened upon a sixer of the real stuff today my plans have changed!
Even though I haven't brewed this yet I applaud the efforts of the ones that really put the time into making the recipe what it is.
