I brewed this recipe on 11/18. I missed the OG by a few points came in at 1.076. Added a healthy 1.5L starter and it was going crazy 7 hours later. I am really looking forward to this beer.

I took a gravity sample today. After 10 days I am down to 1.009-1.010. This beer is very dry and reminds me of a white wine. I am going to transfer this later today and add some dry hops.

I dry hopped today. I went with a 50/50 blend of Amarillo and Simcoe. The original recipe call for all Amarillo dry hop but I figured a little Simcoe couldnt hurt.

This beer came out very good. The boozyness has mellowed and the hops are shining. Very tasty beer. It was well reviewed at a recent HomeBrew Club meeting.
