I will be making it brew in a bag.

Brewed this with a bit of a change in hops:
90 Min Boil
FWH - 0.5 Nelson Sauvin
30 Mins - 1.0 Saaz
5 min - 0.5 Nelson Sauvin
5 min 0.5 EKG
0 min 1.0 Nelson Sauvin
So far the beer taste great. A nice white wine/grape taste to go with the dupont yeast and a little funk. Wife thought the hydro sample was a bit oily, maybe the rye. Going to dry hop with another ounce of Nelson Sauvin.
So far very happy with what I've tasted.
Already pondering a bit of rosemary, sorachi, and nelson sauvin for an easter beer with lamb.
