OK, I finally got a chance to brew this today. Everything per the recipe, but I was a couple

It's cooling ...

Not an expert myself, but it seems like the diacetyl rest is of debatable use, like other hoary

Another necro. Am currently brewing up an American dampfbier with Hefeweizen yeast, pale malt
and simcoe (bittering/flavor/aroma) and hallertau (flavor/aroma) hops. It's still very very
green but tast...
