Ooops, I meant S-05, that was a typo!I saw Omaha on your location, I was there on business and
we went to Upstream and the Farnam (?) brewery/pub. Both had good offerings!My bad, too.

I think you're fine. The sooner you get fermentation going, the better. I'd chill out, wait a

I just re-brewed my all-Galaxy DIPA today. I really enjoy this hop. It seems the more I use in
a beer, the more citrus, passion fruit and pineapple come out and the bitterness remains
