The Northdown is purely for bittering. I shouldn't get any flavor out of that. But it sounds
like this type of schedule is pretty typical of an APA, so I'm going to see if reducing the
ibus and keepin...

My preference would be to use the hops listed since that's what I have in stock. But I've been
