Glad you asked. I sampled my first taste tonoght and it still needs a few days to get carbonated but I really liked the taste. Even my wife likes it and she goes more for APAs and IPAs. It has a nice lemon style aroma and taste but w/o using lemon peels like in some wheats. I am looking forward to seeing how this one develops over the next 3-4 days as we hit 3 weeks on the gas. I think i will brew this again this weekend and bottle so I can share it with my friends when our daughter is born in 6-7 weeks.

Glad to hear its coming along nicely. You're a better man than I. I started my latest batch a few days after you and I couldn't resist so I too had a sample tonight after only 5 days on gas. Again, congrats on the new member of the family.

Cheers!

The first keg has been drained and I am now waiting on the second keg to carbonate. My last 2 brew days have been postponed so I might not be able to make this again until after the birth of our second child here in a few weeks.

Thank you FastAndy for a great recipe. I brewed this beer 2 months ago. Now it is almost gone. This was my first AG so I used a little more grain 10 pounds of 2 row and 1.2 pound Cristal, hops as per your schedule. Beer was ready to drink a moth ago but it was way too fruity with a strong grapefruit note. Even my wife tasted it, otherwise she hates beer. But after a wile (maybe 3 weeks) everything settled and mellowed into very smooth very balanced English style ale with only a hint of citrus aftertaste. This is maybe my best beer ever. Not butter, everyone can drink it. One important notice: it should not be served cold, just a little under room temp, otherwise it looses its taste and character.

I will be keen to try this this weekend, the LHBS has run out of Amarillo but I've never used it so will source some elsewhere. Will also use WLP060, thanks for sharing!

I've been told by my LHBS that Amarillo will be even harder to get next year, hopefully you find some. Let me know how it turns out.

Cheers!
