A couple people discussed it in the HBC 342 thread. I brewed mine last weekend and it chugged along nicely for a while as I fermented it pretty cool.

As for the experimental nature of the kit, I bittered with centenial or whatever it came with, then an ounce of HBC 342 at 15 and 5. I'm going to dry hop with the last ounce for 10 days before bottling. It smelled really good, and I'm going to taste a sample tonight.

One last thing - the whole hops broke my autosiphon! I used a strainer to filter them out after that, and I'm glad I did. First time I used whole leaf, but it was a good lesson to learn.

Freaking amazingly delicious. Easily in my top 5 IPA's.

Bought a second kit.

I dryhopped with citra with my first kit. Might try dryhopping with the HB342 this time (since I can't find Citra anywhere)

They supply 3 bags of hops.
I'm thinking of 2 boil additions and 1 dry hop.
Glad to hear how good it is.

I will be bottling in a couple days. It smells extremely floral and delicious. Haven't tasted it yet but it smells like bells two hearted ale. Yum.

Can you give us more of a description and your addition times?

I brewed it about 5 weeks ago and am enjoying one now. It is a very good beer and I think you'll be happy with it. Nice and hoppy and fun to brew. Cheers!
