    Sounds good! Should be light, with nice spicy, citrus hop aroma and taste, and a clean finish

    I made this kit last July, turned out great. The only thing I did different from the kit
    instructions : Used 3 lb extract at 60 min. in 3 gal boil. Did all other additions as per
    instructions, but mix...
