Default I couldn't wait!

I brewed THIS on 5/1. I doubled up on the carapils and crystal 20L though. It was a "dumb mistake"???? I am not sure yet. I bottle carbed w/ 4.5oz of Muntons KreamyX.

I quick chilled a "tester" in the Deep Freeze for an hour, and just popped the cap. I heard a nice carb "pshhhhhhhhhhh"! WOOT! The mouth feel is VERY "creamy", most likely due to the Muntons. The flavor is VERY good, imo, and the aroma is DEFINITELY orange! It could have used the additional Hops and it will certainly be better after a full time to carb up!

I've thought about trying the Kreamy X, sounds like it made a difference in your beer.
