Just brewed this the other night and is bubbling away right now. Looks good and I can't wait to stick these labels on it and give it a try.

Wow. This is one of the best home-brew labels I have ever seen!

There have been reports recently about chemicals from hydrologic fracturing leeching into well water. If they are drilling near your well, then you may want to do an independent test on your well. It very well may be the source of your off-flavors... I live in the city and have heavily chlorinated tap water, so I just use bottled h2o. Never had any problems with off flavors from my brews

This recipe had my curiosity and now it has my attention! I can't wait to tuck into brewing this on Sunday.. and then the waiting, always with the waiting.. cheers guys, I've picked up plenty of tips here for this.

That said, I've got amarillo & cascade in the freezer so might use these hops but keep the malt/extract bill.. would this be wise or should i stick to the plan?!

Also, kudos for having metric measurements!
