Beer turned out pretty good. I added 2.5lb fresh raspberries which I minced in food processor
and added to primary. It gave it the perfect amt of raspberry flavor, unfortunately cold crash

When do you plan on dry hopping it?brewed 2/28, dry hopped 3/18, kegged 3/24. OG 1.017. This
kit was amazing. From what I remember it was a lot better than the Pliny clone from AHBS.
Highly recommend ...

Just finished a batch and I understand why recipe kit instructions say to pitch dry yeast

Save yourself the time and chances of infecting with frequent SG checks. Just let it ferment

I don't know that recipe, but all hops are bittering hops in a way. Consider 'hopbursting',
when all hops are added at 20 minutes or less in the boil- it uses more hops but plenty of IBUs

Brewing the clone kit from AHBS and it called for no bittering hops? Just 30, 5, & 0 additions.

Not too impressed with final product to be honest. Not bad, but not great. Not surprised though
