I finally got around to brewing this as I mentioned I would about a year ago.

Missed my strike by a degree.
I'll post tasting notes when I get there.

I have to kick a keg first to get it in rotation.
Big football weekend, so it'll probably be on this weekend.

It's still a little undercarbed, so I'll have to give it another week. Has great flavor but a little light on the twang. Perhaps the cabonic acid during carbonation will help.

I'll keep you posted.

I just wanted to note two changes I made to this recipe the last time I brewed it that I think helped to improve it - make it more 'to style'. I upped the acid malt from 6oz. to 8oz. and changed the yeast to WLP007 Dry English Ale Yeast.
