420, IPA, Georgia Brown and Low RYEder IPA all use Wyeast 1968 Fullers ESB. Brewer mentioned it yesterday at AHA rally.

I'm going to give this clone a try. I'll start with the Grapefruit bomb recipe, even if it doesn't have the exact hops that Sweetwater says they have. I live just outside the Atlanta area, I can do plenty of side by side comparisons.

I just brewed my first batch and it was this SW clone. How did it come out for the guys that gave it a try?

I wouldn't call mine a Sweetwater, but it's a great beer. Mine is still missing that over the top citrus hop flavor. I've been discussing this on another thread in here but I don't believe it is the recipe's fault.

I'm a little over two weeks in, anything you would recommend to get that big grapefruit/citrus flavor by making any fruit/hop additions if I transfer it into a secondary.
