60 min:
0.75oz perle 9.4%

15 min:
0.5oz tettnang 6.2%,
0.5oz hallertauer 3.2%

10 min:

Looks good, let us know how it turns out.

I just brewed and American hopped version using this grain bill/yeast, using Centennial for bittering and Ahtanum for the late additions. We'll see how it compares.

This turned out excellent. Finished around 1.009 / 1.010

Kegged yesterday and it tasted great uncarbed.

Thanks for the guidance on the grain bill G.star.

I fermented real low with the 05 and it is incredibly smooth and flavorful.

Looking forward to trying it after it spends a week or two in the keg... If it lasts...

The only thing this beer is missing is the aroma.. are their any German hops that you would recommend for a dry hop?

I have some citra but am hesitant because I am not sure if it will mesh with all of the German hops I used.

Thanks

I would dry hop with Citra if possible. Victory states on their web site that they use American and German hops, and it was noted before that they claimed Citra was present when this beer was only available at the brew pub years ago.

I don't get a lot of Citra in this year's version, but I think it works nonetheless.

Cheers!

Excellent, I'll be making this one. Ironically I'll be getting my grains from a store that is about a mile from victory.

Artisan? I get my grains there all the time. Mike is always helpful, and he knows he stuff. Made it easy for me when I started out

Yep, I try to get stuff there when ever I can.

This beer turned out great. It is not a clone of summer love, but it stands alone as one of the best beers I brewed.

Also, the citra dry hop was a great recommendation. I ended up dry hopping in the keg at 40 degrees and after a week it is glorious! Initially it had a grassy / veg taste from the hops, but tonight I pulled a pint and it has come into its own.

This will not last long.

Just wanted to thumbs up this beer & the OP intentions on cloning. Good luck.
